First Blush In Las Vegas where bigger is better, Roger Thomas goes for the intimate W Photography by Jeff Green “We decided to design it as the coolest living room in Las Vegas,” says Roger Thomas of the new boutique nightclub Blush housed in the former Lure space inside the Wynn. “Like a big party.” • But this came only after an important lesson learned. “For Lure, my concept was to create a nightclub that contained a whole series of private intimate alcoves, so guests could have their own private party,” explains Thomas, executive vice president of design for Wynn Design and Development, mentioning that Blush is a collaboration with Light Group-alum Sean Christie. “But my idea of segregating exclusivity robbed the room of the kind of energy you get. Everyone wants to be at the same, big, fabulous party.” 38 september 2008 tel 800.593.NEWH
