Haute Event: Swizz Beatz Debuts on the Turntables at Tao

Swizz Beatz spins at Tao.

Friday night Kim Kardashian was spotted dining on Lavo’s expansive terrace overlooking the Strip. In town for an appearance for her perfume at Macy’s at Fashion Show mall, she was able to squeeze in a quick dinner at the Italian hot spot at the Palazzo when her plane was delayed. Kardashian and several friends enjoyed her favorite beet salad along with the Kobe meatball.

Later that night, Lennox Lewis also dined at Lavo, fueling up before hosting Lavo’s pre-fight party in the nightclub. Once upstairs the former pro boxer held court with ten friends at a VIP table in the club, enjoying Belvedere cocktails and Patron Silver Tequila while dancing to the sounds of special guest DJ Politik.

At Tao at the Venetian, Swizz Beatz made his debut as the newest SKAM Artist DJ. The crowd was ripe with anticipation as he took to the deejay booth at 1 a.m. He didn’t disappoint, spinning, emceeing and performing for the packed club until 4 a.m. Swizz, whose wife Alicia Keys is celebrating her first Mother’s Day since the birth of their son last year, made sure to shout out to all of the mothers in the crowd. He treated club goers to his unreleased single, “Dance Like a White Girl,” telling the crowd that it means they should, “dance like they just don’t care.”

Spotted taking in the scene from the dance floor were former NFL pro Michael Strahan and Nicole Murphy as well as Christopher “Big Black” Boykin from MTV’s Rob & Big, who stopped by the deejay booth to say hello. Cedric the Entertainer, Tracy McGrady of the Detroit Pistons, Derrick Ward of the Houston Texans, Brandon Jacobs of the New York Giants and sportswriter Jay Glazer were also enjoying the night in the club.

Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul was seen in the club after enjoying a dinner of Peking duck, sea bass and sushi at Tao Asian Bistro.
