The debut of SLS Las Vegas is a few days away and it’s time to prep for one of the best parties the Strip has seen in years! Before the doors officially open on August 23, at 12:01 am, 2,600 hours of planning will have gone into ensuring the festivities are nothing short of iconic. Since the site of the new SLS was once home to the Sahara—where the original Vegas Rat Pack hung out—we’re going with a “modern or vintage cocktail chic” dress code. So dress sharp, arrive on time and #belegendary. And to get you excited as we count down to this Friday, below is a teaser “by the numbers” of the behind the scenes action that’s gone into producing this epic fête:

1,600 Hotel Rooms Booked
3,500 Guests attending (traveling from Paris, NY, Miami, LA, SF)
3,000 Staff
25,000+ Cocktails to be served
12,000+ Champagne glasses to toast
250 Lobsters ordered
275 lbs. Short ribs to be savored
200 lbs. Grade A Tuna for Sushi
Countless Hours of Fun to be had!
