Las Vegas Strip headliner, Frankie Moreno performs for the Gatsby Gamble guests at One Queensridge Place's exclusive Crown Penthouse in Las Vegas, Nevada
Last week One Queensridge Place held the Gatsby Gamble at their exclusive 15 million dollar, 15,000 square foot Crown Penthouse. The party and penthouse were so exquisite that Jay Gatsby himself would have felt right at home. The best part of the event was that the fete benefited Three Square Food Bank and they are now able to hand out 45,000 additional meals to those in need in Las Vegas!
Let's take a peek into the party!
The exterior of One Queensridge Place just screams Gatsby! You felt the luxury as you entered the grounds.
The check in for the Gatsby Gamble was one of the most opulent guest check ins that I have ever been to. The lobby was stunning!
As you entered, you were treated to refreshing Absolut Elyx (super fitting for this event) as you made your way down the red carpet to the elevators.
This penthouse was beyond stunning! Every room seems to have balconies that showcases the lights of the Vegas strip from afar or the glorious Nevada mountain ranges.
This pool was perfect for the penthouse and the Las Vegas heat. I could not help but feel like royalty as I walked around and pictured myself living there. The bathrooms were like mini palaces!
VIP guest like Vegas Strip headliners Frankie Moreno and Claire Sinclair (2011 Playboy playmate of the year and pinup girl/burlesque dancer) showed up to the Gatsby Gamble in style via brand new Rolls Royces.
Of course I had to get in on the Rolls Royce action with Sabrina Chapman in the middle and our friend Hope Shoemaker on the far left!
Frankie and Claire can both be seen at the Stratosphere in Las Vegas! I had a chance to see Frankie's show while I was in town it is is a lot of fun and with lots of energy!
During the party guest imbibed on amazing cocktails with spirits like Absolute Elyx, Milagro, Sailor Jerry's Rum, and Hendrick's Gin. Along with their stylish cocktails, guest also noshed on amazingly delicious food by Chef Carla Pellegrino who is a former Top Chef contestant and executive chef of Bratalian and Meatball Shop in Vegas.
The sliders and pasta were a huge hit. My personal fave was the meatballs with pesto!

What would the Gatsby Gamble be without the well, gambling! During the event a poker tournament was held for all who wanted to participate.
The event had everything you could possibly want including candy stations and cotton candy with gold glitter sprinkled on it! Nothing but the best for Gatby's guests!
Later in the evening Frankie Moreno entertained the party while guests twirled their dates and danced around his piano and band complete with an elegant violinist.
If dancing to top 40 music is more your thing (you know it is one of my fave things to do) then resident Las Vegas DJ, DJ Baby Chino was there in another room to get you dancing. He later came to the front of the party where he helped guest shut down the event by dancing the night away! I am a very harsh critic when it comes to DJ's, a bad one can ruin my night, but I have to say that this kid has some serious skills on the 1's and 2's! He kept me dancing and saying, "This DJ is amazing!"
Other notable guests included (on top from left to right) Director of PR for SK+G Michele Madole and SVP of One Queensridge Place Randy Char. Pictured below (from left to right) the owners of Sol Swimwear Couture in Las Vegas' Tivoli Village, Raquel and Enid Alicea.
Thank you so much to Sabrina Chapman and the SK+G team for inviting me to this marvelous event! It was a party that I can honestly put up there with some of the best events in NYC! Congrats on a successful night!
