Calvin Harris returned to the nightclub at Hakkasan at the MGM Grand on Saturday night to perform to a sold out crowd. Before his performance, Harris along with good friend and fellow British singer/songwriter Rita Ora, dined on Cantonese cuisine at the newly opened Hakkasan restaurant.

In the main room of the nightclub, featured artist Fergie kicked off the night and had guests on their feet as he played hit after hit during his pulsating set as gorgeous dancers dressed in elaborate costumes showcased spectacular choreographed acts.

Just after midnight Harris and his guests, including Ora, were escorted from the restaurant and to his VIP table behind the DJ booth in the main room. After relaxing and mingling with friends, the renowned resident DJ stepped into the booth where he took his place behind the turntables and began his heart-pumping set. The energy in the room skyrocketed as fans cheered at the first glimpse of the celebrated artist. Throughout his set, Harris played fan favorites “Feel So Close,” “We Found Love,” “Sweet Nothing” and many more as confetti blasted through the air, keeping guests on their feet into the early hours of the morning.

Actor Neil Patrick Harris was spotted partying at a VIP table in the main room while sipping on cocktails and hanging out with fans.

Simultaneously in Hakkasan’s 10,000-square-foot Ling Ling Club, celebrated DJ Ross One was found behind the turntables spinning for a packed room as the Samurai-dressed atmosphere dancers took their place on the platforms and performed choreographed routines for the crowd.
