Last night, Holly Madison hosted a special Valentine’s Day affair at Tryst Nightclub at Wynn Las Vegas. She walked the red carpet in a red party dress with gold shimmer accents and red peep-toe heels. Joined by her two best friends and “Holly’s World” co-stars Josh Strickland and Angel Porrino, the group was very playful posing on the carpet much to the enjoyment of onlookers in line, waiting to get inside and closer to the reality stars.

Missing from the event was Madison’s current beau Jack Barakat, guitarist in the rock band All Time Low. Madison confirmed on the carpet that she is still dating Barakat, but that because of their very busy schedules, they opt to keep things very mellow and not put any pressure on each other. He is currently on the East Coast preparing for a European tour.

She glowed when she discussed her new hosting correspondent position with “Extra,” and even took over one on-camera interview to grill Strickland on his ideal relationship.

Once inside, the “PeepShow” entourage was seated at the best table in the club, directly on the dance floor looking out on the venue’s 90-foot waterfall. Madison wasted no time to get the party started, as she jumped up on top of their banquette, dancing with her friends, waving and posing for fans’ photo requests from below. The group was especially excited to hear Katy Perry’s “Firework” and Afrojack’s “Take Over Control,” screaming in excitement and singing along to every word with each other. She was also overjoyed to see the staff were all dressed in her honor, donning tube socks, short shorts, I Love Holly T-shirts and even her signature candy necklaces from Sugar Factory. She tweeted a photo out to saying, “The cocktail girls at Tryst are all in Holly costumes!! So cute!”

The staff at Tryst presented Madison with an immaculate Valentine’s Day cake, a three-tier creation by Freed’s Bakery in Las Vegas. Each layer was a giant stacked candy heart with oversized Valentine’s Day candy and cherries topping it. After taking photos, Madison stuck her finger in it to lick the frosting and once Strickland and Porrino realized the cake was real, they ripped out a middle section to take a bite of the holiday delight.

Just for the occasion, Bacardi created a signature drink titled the “Holly Berry,” featuring Bacardi Torched Cherry rum, a perfect concoction for Valentine’s Day. The entourage raised their glasses to the burlesque star and toasted to kicking off the holiday weekend at the Las Vegas hot spot. The concoction was a combination of Bacardi Torched Cherry, Chambord, splash of Sweet & Sour and a splash of Sprite, and was served to guests as both a shot or martini.
