Q u i k

W

est Coast hip-hop stalwart DJ Quik stopped in Las Vegas last year to perform at Brooklyn Bowl, and he’ll return Saturday night for a set at LAX. We spoke with Quik about keeping his craft alive and well. You don’t come to Vegas a lot. Ever since 2Pac died there, I’m not trying to be there. Sh*t rubs me the wrong way. Before that, Vegas was vacation-land for all of California. It’s not the city’s fault; it’ll just never leave my mind.

B u i l d i n g t h e

g r o o v e

The film Straight Outta Compton put a focus back on the West Coast. What did you think of the movie? A lot of it was super dead-on, and a lot reminded me of those times, hanging out with Eazy. To relive it was awesome. It was almost like the world got a chance to see why he was championed so much. That movie is right up there now with Menace II Society and Boyz n the Hood. Has it changed anything for you? I’ve been getting calls to work with people, yeah. The trickle down is real. When times get weird, people turn to music. It’s like a natural blanket. People want music to make them feel good, and we were discerning in the way we did that with the early stuff. West Coast hip-hop is alive again, and it’s like, thank you!

What do you think of the younger generation of artists? Hip-hop is so young. It’s hard for me to speak on the youth and what’s going on, because what I say is dissected and taken out of context. That’s why I haven’t been doing interviews or Twitter. I’ve been doing important sh*t, like helping to beautify the city of Compton. It’s starting to look like the suburb I grew up in. That’s been my M.O. lately, going back to where I grew up and making it a better place. Do you feel the same way about music? I’m still building, making new music, developing new artists and trying to rediscover my passion for the music and what made me who I was when I was doing it before I wanted money from it. ... I’ve been feeling a little melancholy about the business since we lost so many important people—Prince, Maurice White, George Michael, David Bowie. It’s painful, but the saving grace is that life goes on in finding the spark in some of these new artists. That keeps me going. DJ Quik at LAX at Luxor, February 18. –Brock Radke

ennifer Lopez had already conquered all facets of the entertainment world when she began her Las Vegas residency show, All I Have, last January. But she’s not slowing down a bit.

Photograph by Denise Truscello

J.Lo will be all over TV in 2017— starring in the second season of cop drama Shades of Blue (returning March 5); producing and judging on NBC’s new World of Dance $1 million competition series; and starring in the holiday production of Bye Bye Birdie, playing a role made famous by Chita Rivera. Between all that, recording her first Spanish-language album in a decade and returning to the Vegas stage, Lopez will somehow find time for a historic April concert at the Altos de Chavón Amphitheater in the Dominican Republic, a 5,000seat venue built in the 1970s and concert-christened by Frank Sinatra in 1982. It’ll be J.Lo’s first-ever performance in the DR, and judging from the all-out energy she puts into her Vegas shows, likely another memorable moment in a career full of them. Jennifer Lopez: All I Have at the Axis at Planet Hollywood, February 17-25.

iplo’s sets at XS have become major events. The genre-spanning DJ and producer remains one of the biggest names on the Wynn Nightlife roster, and this week he takes control of the club on Monday night to launch a pretty huge Vegas week. He won’t be alone. MAGIC’s winter week brings all things retail and fashion to the Strip beginning Tuesday, guaranteeing

bigger-than-usual midweek parties up and down Las Vegas Boulevard. It only makes sense that Off White founder and designer Virgil Abloh will make his return to XS to set a stylish pace. Abloh, recently rumored for the head job at luxury fashion house Givenchy, is currently working on design projects that go beyond fashion. “I’m taking the concept of streetwear and translating it to the art world,” he recently told Architectural Digest. His

eclectic musical tastes, ranging from cutting-edge hip-hop to classic house to favorite dance tracks, should sync up nicely with Diplo’s sounds. Diplo and Virgil Abloh at XS at Encore, February 20.

he only thing we knew for sure was that there would be many grand costume changes, and we weren’t disappointed. Cher went through 11 Bob Mackiedesigned outfits during opening night of her all-new Las Vegas residency production Classic Cher at Park Theater on February 8—including the iconic (and revealing) sheer, black ensemble she wore in the 1989 video for “If I Could Turn Back Time.” Now 70 years old, Cher rocked the look—and all the others—like no one else can, delivering a consistently powerful performance throughout the night. But it was during that memorable late-’80s track—paired with another rock ballad from the era, “I Found Someone”— that the colorful, career-spanning show hit its peak. The crowd of 5,000-plus went wild. “Are you overcome with my talent, or just astonished that I’m here?” she joked after arriving onstage singing “Woman’s World.” She seamlessly transitioned back and forth from early hits like “The Beat Goes On” and “HalfBreed” to more contemporary club favorites like “Strong Enough.” Cher has held a Vegas residency before, but her new show is a creative reinvention, which makes sense considering the way she has reinvented herself throughout 50 years in the spotlight. She clearly isn’t finished yet. Classic Cher at Park Theater, February 18-25. –Brock Radke

erhaps Malcolm Davis gained his unique creative perspective by traveling, growing up a military brat in Tokyo and around the U.S. When he settled in Atlanta as a teenager, that perspective solidified into sound. MadeinTYO (pronounced “made in Tokyo”) founded Privateclub Records with his brother, rapper 24hrs, and started building a buzz in the hip-hop world almost immediately behind the ultra-catchy “Uber Everywhere.” “I recorded that song in my kitchen,” MadeinTYO told Vice. “My whole crew was there in the kitchen, and it just came up. ‘Uber Everywhere’

was just a random line that I said and then ran with. I didn’t really feel like it was a song until a day later when I listened to it and said, “Yo, this sh*t is hard. I think people are really going to mess with it.” The spontaneous success was real, and it continued with the 2 Chainz collaboration “I Want,” the December release of EP 24Hrs in Tokyo and new single “Skateboard P.” MadeinTYO stays connected to his fans, too, joining the #DeleteUber movement after seeing his supporters take it viral on social media.

In March, he joins Big Sean’s I Decided tour, but this week, he parties with MAGIC in Las Vegas at Hyde. “Last year was amazing year for me, so I can only imagine what God is going to bless me with this year,” he recently told Billboard. MadeinTYO at Hyde Bellagio, February 21.

rekking across North America on his Ninja Nation 2017 bus tour, dubstep darling Datsik has some massive tricks in store for his Las Vegas stop at Hard Rock Live on the Strip. We caught up with the Canadian DJ and producer.

looking thing, and I look like a hybrid of two Mortal Kombat characters. ... It’s all light-up and LED-based and it’s wireless, so I can run around on stage [with] someone at the front controlling all these lights while I’m DJing. It looks pretty cool, and it’s definitely a childhood dream achieved.

What does the Ninja Nation Tour entail, particularly the shogun stage? The shogun is probably my wildest vision yet. I wanted to take all the inspiration I’ve always had as a kid and transform it into something that I was able to tie into the music that I’ve put out recently, called the Sensei EP. It basically looks like a level from Mortal Kombat. It’s a giant dojo-

You’ve also partnered with PK Sound. It’s going to be super loud and super crisp, and it’s gonna be amazing. Expect some organs to explode. What musical direction were you aiming for with the Sensei EP? It’s funny, I had four tracks done, and I was like, it’s cool, but I don’t feel like

it’s quite there yet. So the last two weeks I ended up writing three new tracks. Musically, I’m kind of known for dubstep, and usually I’ll end up switching it up and throwing a bunch more hip-hop in my EP, but this time I wanted to really see what I was capable of, exploring all things dubstep. This is kind of a throwback to my roots, and I think so far it’s been pretty well-received. Datsik (with Crizzly and Virtual Riot) at Hard Rock Live, February 23. –Deanna Rilling

udson Jeans founder Peter Kim is known for going against the grain. As the purveyor of one of the first premium denim brands of the early 2000s, he helped define the essence of laidback luxury, creating a company recognized for a rebellious and free-spirited culture. A self-described feminist, Kim continues to push the boundaries of both business and community. We caught up with Kim before he headed to Las Vegas for the winter MAGIC trade show to talk empowerment, authenticity and rock ’n’ roll.

On the importance of company culture: “Back in the early days, people would say, ‘That’s not what the brand is about; that’s not for the public,’ and I didn’t agree with that concept. The brand is the company culture. You have to believe in something more than product or money. There’s got to be a deeper meaning. The product becomes the thing that connects you to the consumer. We have a simple but very strong core purpose and core belief ... to help inspire the power of self.”

On why Hudson doesn’t airbrush ads: “I have twin girls that are 16. I watched this documentary called Miss Representation, all about how the media portrays girls and women and how it really screws up their psyche. And it hits home. You take a model who is somewhere between 16 and 22, and you get these amazing photographers and stylists and take these beautiful pictures and then we Photoshop the sh*t out of these girls. It’s not human. We’re not just telling an innocent lie. The cut is so deep. ... We had to make a change. Once you realize how bad those consequences are, how do you go back to doing something that’s horrible?” On Hudson’s heart: “How do you de-commoditize a commoditized industry? For us, we’re about jeans, we’re about denim, this whole spirit of rock ’n’ roll—and that’s deep within us. This is how we live our lives. I think that’s our next phase of where we think it’s going.” –Leslie Ventura

he five-course menu at Mina Test Kitchen kicks off with a bang: a pair of golden zeppole topped with caramelized onions, potato mozzarella fonduta and a dollop of glistening caviar. Two decadent bites of crunchy, sweet, creamy and briny—it’s the kind of dish that makes you groan, but if you swing by the unmarked San Francisco restaurant next month or even next week, it won’t be on the menu. Things change fast inside Test Kitchen: a new amuse every week, a fresh menu every month, an entirely different culinary concept every quarter. As its name suggests, the eatery is a perpetual workin-progress, a restaurant laboratory where Michael Mina and Co. workshop ideas and where guests flock to consume lavish meals at mid-range prices.

The pop-up space launched a year and a half ago with Middle’terranea, a hybrid Middle Eastern/Mediterranean restaurant inspired by Mina’s Egyptian heritage and Mina Group partner Adam Sobel’s Jewish and Mediterranean roots. Since then, the cozy 45-seat space has housed a 1920s-style Italian American bistro, an Indian small-plates concept, a Bloody Mary brunch and an international barbecue joint helmed by cookbook author and Food Network personality Ayesha Curry (whose husband is Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry). “It blossomed into this dream factory,” Sobel says of MTK, where he serves as executive chef. This quarter, Sobel and crew are testing Postcards From la Costiera, an Italian seafood concept. Though Sobel’s already

planning the room’s next incarnation, when Postcards closes in late March the team will have just one week to train and transition, learning new dishes, repainting the walls and creating a fresh venue on a timeline reminiscent of Top Chef’s infamous Restaurant Wars. If that pace seems somewhat masochistic, consider the results: “When [each pop-up is] complete, we have a restaurant on a silver platter with a neat little bow on it,” Sobel says. All but one of the concepts that have called the Cow Hollow space home are on their way to permanent brick-and-mortar locations elsewhere. “It’s kind of our secret weapon.” Mina Test Kitchen, 415-6255469. –Sarah Feldberg

he Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas has always offered a come-as-you-are vibe and a rebellious attitude, which translates into automatic fun. The same can be said for Culinary Dropout, the Hard Rock’s energetic gastropub. It started as the perfect place to sip and snack before catching a concert at the Joint, but Dropout has become a destination unto itself. The main reason is the menu. The casual atmosphere, well-crafted cocktails and solid list of brews go a long way, but the food variety is pitchperfect. Start with mini platters of

prosciutto di San Daniele, bresaola and truffled crescenza cheese, or stick to deliciously twisted bar-food faves like pickled sweet peppers, cheddar pork cracklings, pork belly nachos or soft pretzels with provolone fondue. Keep it simple and satisfying with a havarti-bacon-barbecue burger, or dig deeper with a Korean-style ribeye cap steak or pan-seared rainbow trout. Or indulge with comfort-food favorites like fried chicken drizzled with honey or beer-battered fish and chips. From smoked salmon to chicken wings, Culinary Dropout is as refined or as relaxed as you want it to be—no

fuss, just flavor. Culinary Dropout at Hard Rock Hotel, 702-522-8100; Monday-Thursday 11 a.m.-11 p.m., Friday 11 a.m.-midnight, Saturday 10 a.m.-midnight, Sunday 10 a.m.-11 p.m.

here’s a little bit of quirk and a little bit of magic hiding at the base of the new W Las Vegas, the refreshing hotel experience at SLS at the northern tip of the Strip. The W is a hotel within the hotel, offering both an escape and ready access to the casino and amenities of its host facility. It’s not a new concept for Las Vegas, but you’ll know it’s something different as you saunter past the lobby into the Living Room. Yes, it’s a hotel lobby bar and lounge, but it’s also so much more. Bright and clean with a modernized/retro look, the Living Room feels an impossible hybrid of Mad Men and The Jetsons—with a splash of vintage Vegas charm. Look closer at the detailed finishes that surround your cozy leather banquette. What seem like carefully layered textures might be a collage of casino dice. Straight lines are actually curved, like on the chessboards that invite lazy afternoon activity. Metal and wood converge around comfort, artwork stimulates and turntables await the soft touch of vinyl. Take a trip to the gender-neutral water closets where you’ll meet Booker Glam, a fortune teller who answers the question: What if the Zoltar game from the movie Big was modeled after Little Richard? The Living Room’s cocktails are as unique as the environment, from a Negroni under the influence of Madeira to the Floradora, a concoction mixing Hendrick’s with raspberry syrup and ginger beer. A Moscow Mule gets a cinnamon-apple twist, and Chelsea’s Lady Luck ... well, you might not be ready for that. Let’s just say there’s mezcal involved. And aloe vera liqueur. And serrano-lime sugar. Like this lounge, the drink is begging to be discovered. The Living Room at W Las Vegas, 702-761-8700; Sunday-Thursday 4-11 p.m., Friday & Saturday 4 p.m.-2 a.m. –Brock Radke

The California transplant that first broke into Vegas with a taco shop at Downtown Container Park has opened a festive, expanded location at the Gramercy, and favorite desayuno dishes are available there every day of the week. The potato- and pico de gallo-stuffed breakfast burrito might be the obvious choice if you’re nursing a hangover, but don’t bypass the chilaquiles—tortilla chips sautéed with eggs, Oaxacan cheese, onions, cilantro and a house-made red chile salsa. Topped with sour cream and guacamole, this dish is great for sharing. Other favorites include a breakfast torta layered with eggs, pinto beans and fresh crema, and a chorizo scramble that satisfies with spice. Pair any of these plates with an icy Dos Equis, a blood orange margarita or a spicy michelada to achieve the ultimate brunch combination. Pinches Tacos at the Gramercy, 702-818-4208; Sunday-Thursday 9 a.m.-11 p.m., Friday & Saturday 9 a.m.-1 a.m.

At the Spa at Mandarin Oriental, you can make like a lizard and lounge on the heated marble slab at the heart of a mosaic-tiled space. As constant warmth from the “mother stone” gets blood moving and pushes perspiration levels into overdrive, pores are ready to be purged. A Turkish kese mitt is used to vigorously shed lackluster skin from the neck down, and is followed

by an application of quenching olive oil soap to your body’s largest organ (skin!). As fragrant steam culminates the 45-minute experience, admire your new glow with a coed spa squad of up to eight. Touted as a modern homage to the centuries-old practice of purification and renewal, the Sahra Hammam at the Cosmopolitan offers traditional, yet indulgent treatments. If sprawling on a toasty stone and sloughing off dead skin before nourishing with tangerine-fig body butter amid eucalyptus steam is your thing, choose the 50-minute Hammam soap ritual. Or maybe the Red Flower Hammam Experience that steeps

lemon blossom, jasmine and more into a scrub, mask and massage. Consider the Moroccan Journey that mimics the transcendent effects of a great trip through such highlights as the volcanic black soap bath, a slathering of pure honey and massage imparting Thai, Swedish and Shiatsu movements. The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, 702-590-8886; Sahra Hammam at the Cosmopolitan, 702-698-7171. –Brittany Brussell
