Steve Aoki at Māyā Day & Nightclub By all accounts, Māyā made a major splash during its weeklong grand opening. Not only did throngs of stylish nightlife types flock into its huge, neon-lighted dance club inside, they also cloistered away in VIP cabanas or gathered in and around the hashtag-shaped pool to watch on in reverences as ultra-talented DJs like Calvin Harris perform on either the elevated or floating stages.

Doors open at 11 a.m. General admission is $35 and VIP treatment is $150.
