Snoop Dogg manned the DJ booth at Tao Nightclub at the Venetian for the last Snoopadelic Cabaret of 2014. Serving as master of ceremonies, Snoop greeted the crowd in the downstairs Boss Lady Lounge before heading into the club. Snoop led the dressed-to-the-nines revelers in the countdown and then performed songs including “The Next Episode,” “Gin and Juice” and “Drop It Like It’s Hot.”

The entire venue was transformed into a 1920s speakeasy and Snoop was presented with a special limited edition Shine Bright six liter bottle of Moet & Chandon Champagne that was paraded through the crowd.

Andre Johnson, wide receiver for the Houston Texans was also spotted at Tao.

Earlier, singer Drake was spotted dining at Tao two nights in a row. On Tuesday the rapper met up with music producer Irv Gotti and friends at the Asian bistro for TAO-TINI cocktails, hot and sour soup and Mr. Wong shrimp. Later that night he headed to Marquee’s Boom Box Room for the club’s Hip Hop Until The Ball Drops pre-New Year’s Eve party. On December 31 the restaurant opened up the private dining room and served a special menu for Drake so he could fuel up for the big night.

At Lavo inside the Palazzo, DJ Khaled was on hand, toasting the arrival of 2015 with a performance of hits such as “All I Do Is Win” and current favorite “Hold You Down.” He later made his way to Tao, where he joined Snoop in the DJ booth.
