Club Nikki at the all-new Tropicana Las Vegas welcomed the Official “LOUD” Tour Concert After Party hosted by Rihanna on Saturday night.
Rihanna arrived with a large group including family, friends and dancers from her tour. She looked radiant in a floor-length dark green gown and Christian Louboutin nude pumps. Her group enjoyed Armand de Brignac Ace of Spades Champagne and Grey Goose Vodka.
Just after sitting down, Rihanna noticed Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker at the next table. Barker was checking out Club Nikki ahead of his performance at the venue on Saturday, July 9, with Mix Master Mike, resident deejay for the Beastie Boys. She got up and went over to say hello. Although overwhelmed by fans and well-wishers in the capacity crowd, Rihanna was gracious in greeting and taking photos with fans.
UFC Bantamweight Champion Dominick Cruz arrived at Club Nikki to celebrate retaining his Bantamweight Championship with a unanimous decision victory over Urijah Faber in the main event of UFC 132 just hours earlier. The bout received “Fight-of-the-Night” honors.
Cruz stopped by to say hello to Rihanna on the way to Travis Barker’s table. Rihanna had attended the UFC fights before her concert and congratulated Cruz on his victory. Cruz responded by allowing Rihanna to hold his UFC Bantamweight Championship belt. Barker then joined Cruz and Rihanna.
Later in the evening, rapper and Rihanna “LOUD” Tour opening act, B.o.B arrived at Club Nikki after hosting an event at Pure Nightclub. He had heard great things about Club Nikki and wanted to see for himself. His group drank Patron Tequila and stayed until the end of the night.
