Hakkasan at the MGM Grand was the place to be as thousands of guests lined up at the doors to see Tiësto perform for the first time at the club on Friday night.

Earlier in the night, the restaurant at Hakkasan opened its doors for the first time as A-List celebrities including Hilary Duff and former Canadian professional hockey player Mike Comrie, Haylie Duff, “Entourage” star Adrian Grenier, actor and comedian Aziz Ansari and Tiësto dined there to get a taste of the award-winning cuisine.

First to hit the decks in the main room of the nightclub was the gorgeous DJ Bambi, who immediately had the festivities in high gear and had guests on their feet. Stunning atmosphere models and exquisite dancers donning intricate, eye-catching costumes performed their show-stopping choreographed routines to Bambi’s hard-hitting tracks.

The all-encompassing destination continued its third weekend of opening festivities as electronic music icon Tiësto launched his “Club Life” residency and spun his infectious music to a packed house. Arriving at the nightclub at 1 a.m., the electronic music sensation took his place in the DJ booth and was welcomed to his new home by thousands of his shouting fans, who waited patiently for him to return to the stage since his last concert in LA two months ago.

Earlier in the evening, Tiësto was greeted by CEO of Angel Management Group Neil Moffitt as he presented him with a commemorative-framed gold disc by to celebrate the first-ever performance of his exclusive Club Life residency at Hakkasan.

Meanwhile in Hakkasan Las Vegas’ 10,000-square-foot Ling Ling Club, celebrated New York native deejay and producer Jesse Marco was found behind the turntables spinning for a packed room as choreographed atmosphere dancers dressed in stunning Samurai-inspired outfits enhanced the mood providing guests with non-stop entertainment.

Spotted partying in Ling Ling Club was Hilary Duff and her husband Mike Comrie. Sister Haylie Duff was also seen dancing and hanging out as good friend and DJ Jesse Marco spun a heart-pumping set. Seated next to the Duff sisters was Entourage star Adrian Grenier who sipped cocktails and mingled with the crowd and gorgeous Hakkasan staff. At a table on the dance floor was funny man Aziz Ansari.
