Every big name comes to Las Vegas (eventually).
Sin City makes it quick and easy to make a lot of money while still getting to stay in a luxurious hotel with world-class dining around the corner. And while Las Vegas used to be reserved for cheesy performers well past their prime, it has diminished as large, current acts have established themselves in the city for extended periods.
With the various Caesars Entertainment CZR and MGM Resorts International MGM venues hosting the top talent during the night and at its pools/day clubs during the day, the Las Vegas Strip has become home to pretty much every major DJ.
A few big names have established their own venues on the Las Vegas Strip, including comedy clubs for Kimmel and Garrett and multiple bar lounges for Vanderpump. These locations follow the celebrity restaurant trend in the city.

Guy Fieri, who plays Steve Jobs on Food Network, does not appear to be as popular as some of his fellow TV stars. Fieri's restaurants seem a bit more like a phony trick to attract tourists.
That's not a bad move, as Las Vegas, and the Las Vegas Strip most of all, has an incredible amount of choices. It's difficult to attract clients, and putting Fieri's name on the marquee works to get people in the door.
When a new venue with a big-name celebrity behind it gets announced, you never know if you're getting a passion project the star really cares about or a money-grab rent-a-name situation.
The Bruno Mars Lounge is bringing you to Bellagio.
Bruno Mars, who has been a multi-time Las Vegas performer both as a solo artist and with his Silk Sonic duo, is apparently preparing to open a venue on the Las Vegas Strip, according to the Las Vegas Review Journal.
According to two food and beverage industry insiders familiar with the project but not authorized to discuss it publicly, Bruno Mars chose the Las Vegas Strip as his starting location.
Mars may be the ideal person to open a venue in Las Vegas because of his timeless charm and appeals to all ages. The singer is currently performing with Anderson Paak, his partner in Silk Sonic, in a residency at Park MGM that runs until August.
