Las Vegas to Welcome First Holographic Nightclub in U.S.

If you are hitting the clubs in Las Vegas one night and you find yourself dancing with someone who isn't really there, don't worry— you are probably at Lolita's Cantina and Tequila Bar.

The restaurant/bar opened July 23 and, with the help of Digital Illusions and Rick Haynes, features the first nightclub in the United States to include holographic entertainment. Located at 6605 Las Vegas Blvd, Suite 207 in Town Square, the establishment is owned by veteran hospitality developer Eric DeBiasi and award-winning celebrity chef Carlo Cavallo.

With a theater as the centerpiece of the club,  guests can experience the custom holographic entertainment while eating, drinking or dancing from any angle. The theater looks like any other stage environment with a hidden trick: Digital Illusions uses state-of-the-art fire retardant polymers and high-definition video to create illusions such as virtual dancing girls at night and mariachis at lunch. Custom software allows the DJ to mix in the holographic audio and video with their own mix seamlessly.

In addition to the virtual entertainment, actual live artists and musicians will perform at the venue, including conga drummers and go go dancers. As for the cuisine, expect authentic Mexican, hand crafter Margarita mixes and more than 100 tequilas from which to choose.
