On Saturday night, professional dancer and three-time champion of ABC’s hit reality series “Dancing with the Stars” Derek Hough celebrated his 27th birthday at Tabú inside the MGM Grand. Earlier in the evening, Hough and a close group of friends dined at Tom Colicchio’s Craftsteak also at MGM Grand. He arrived on the red carpet a little before midnight, dressed in a white T-shirt, grey jacket and dark grey jeans.

Hough walked the carpet just outside of Tabú, creating a huge crowd of fans who gathered to see the dancer. He posed for photos and signed autographs with each fan and even danced with one lucky lady.

Once inside the stylish boutique nightclub, the group was escorted to their VIP table, directly in front of the DJ booth. Hough continued to take pictures with fans at his table and smiled and waved to partygoers as DJ Kid Jay introduced him to the crowd. Later in the night, Hough’s white chocolate birthday cake decorated with gold and dark chocolate details was delivered to the table. After blowing out the candles, Hough jumped into the DJ booth with DJ Kid Jay.

Hough and his friends continued to party late into the evening, dancing to songs including “Strip” by Chris Brown, “I Know You Want Me” by Pitbull and “Domino” by Jessie J. The group stayed at the Las Vegas hot spot until the early morning hours as DJ Kid Jay and Tabú’s sultry go-go dancers kept the crowded club on the dance floor all night long.
