Airia Nightclub in Chandler Opens This Weekend With A Three-Night Party

There's been plenty of hubbub and hype over Gila River Casino's chic new Wild Horse Pass Hotel opening up this weekend, with plenty of attention being paid to the plush Airia Nightclub, and with good reason.

According to the press release being sent out by its proprietors, the Las Vegas-style (natch) lounge and club features more than 5,000-square-feet of lavishness, a host of 65-inch plasma screens, room for big-name turntablists to drop plenty of phat beats, and the requisite posh VIP booths. A three-night grand opening fete is planned starting this evening and includes a two-night stint by Sin City's DJ Warren Peace (not to be confused with the fire-slinging superhero) and the debut of Resident Sundays hosted by the Valley's own Silver Medallion.

In addition to this swanketeria, the new hotel will feature a slew of other nightlife options to separate urbanites from their paychecks, including a pair of live entertainment lounges entitled Reflections and Encore, and the upscale bar Classics With A Twist serving martinis and other artesian alcoholic cocktails.
