Kicking the party off at Tao Beach’s season grand opening at the Venetian earlier in the day on Saturday, celebrities filled Tao Asian Bistro & Nightclub, continuing the celebration to the sounds of DJ Vice on Saturday night.

After partying the day away in honor of a friend’s bachelorette party, Ashlee Simpson and Odette Annable enjoyed dinner with friends in Tao Asian Bistro’s private dining room before making their way to a VIP table in the nightclub.

Rapper Busta Rhymes also continued his day at Tao. His group dined on satay of chicken with peanut sauce, spicy tuna tartare on crispy rice and sushi then headed up to party VIP style in the club.

The list of stars continued to grow that night as actor Adrian Grenier enjoyed dinner at the restaurant as well.

At Tao Nightclub, rapper Trinidad James headlined the night, taking over a section of VIP tables on the dance floor with a large group of friends as DJ Vice shouted out his arrival to the packed crowd. He then jumped on the mic to perform a selection of songs including his hit single “All Gold Everything.” The club went wild as phones filled the air and fans sang along to every word. Jumping into the crowd, he performed the song a second time as a confetti rained on the dance floor. In between songs Trinidad shared, “If you don’t get anything else from this, I want you to love living life.” After his performance, he continued the party at his table, dancing on top of his booth, glow stick in hand. Later in the night, the rapper got back on the mic and delivered an energetic encore performance and jumped in the DJ booth alongside Vice.

Mario Lopez was also spotted at a VIP table on the dance floor, taking in Trinidad James’ performance from atop his table. As did comedian Aziz Ansari, who was also spotted partying at Tao.

Across the dance floor sat Super Bowl champ Ray Rice along with fellow NFL player Courtney Greene and C.J. Miles of the Cleveland Cavaliers, who stopped by the DJ booth to say hi to Vice on the way to their table. Vice shouted Rice out several times throughout the night as the group joined in the party scene.

DJ Vice also let the club know that Washington Redskins player DeAngelo Hall was present. Hall was seen partying with a small group and dancing on top of his table. He also sent a bottle over to fellow football star Ray Rice’s table.

At Marquee, Food Network host Guy Fieri took in the sounds of Kaskade with his wife at a VIP table and posed for photos with fans.

Famous NBA figure Dennis Rodman was also spotted checking out the club scene at Marquee.
