The best place in Las Vegas to see throwback performers? LAX Nightclub at the Luxor. Last Thursday proved no different with hip-hop pioneer CL Smooth performing. Some of his fan favorites include “They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)” and “American Me.”

Then on Saturday, hip-hop superstar Ja Rule returned to LAX Nightclub to perform a set of back-to-back hits to a packed crowd. Among the fan-favorite songs he delivered were “Between Me and You,” “Put It on Me,” and “Can I Get A…” a song he originally collaborated with Jay-Z on. The party doesn’t stop there. On Thursday, March 30, Coolio will take the stage, followed by Sugar Ray front man Mark McGrath on Saturday, April 1. Over at Omnia at Caesars Palace, “Blade” star Wesley Snipes, Hollywood filmmaker Brett Ratner, R&B singer-songwriter Keith Sweat, and “Vanderpump Rules” reality TV personality Tom Sandoval were all spotted partying at the nightclub. Sweat kicked off the night at Heart of Omnia, the lounge inside the club. Inside the main club, Sandoval arrived with a large group of about 30 people.
