Inside Treasure Island, this is part tattoo parlor, part South Beach sheen. Christian Audigier puts the Ed Hardy, “skull and roses” tattoo art everywhere he can: Silver skulls loom over black faux crocodile banquettes, backed by heavy vermillion velvet drapery from a haunted house or, say, a cathouse. It’s all illuminated by black Murano glass chandeliers and two 1,000-gallon tanks full of jellyfish in one of the best Las Vegas clubs.
The heat inside gets a cooling from the patio, which is the best place in town to watch the Sirens of Treasure Island un-man their captives amid entertaining pyrotechnics every 90 minutes.
The music mixes tunes rock 'n' roll and progressive house music although there’s not much space to dance. It’s more of a scene place and Audigier does bring in his friends: Jaime Pressly, Bai Ling, Damon Wayans, Mike Tyson, Miami Heat center Jermaine O’Neal, Toronto Raptors center Patrick O’Bryant and Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Tyron Brackenridge are among the names that have come this way.
