Tangerine coming to TI

May 11, 2004 2:19 AM

A touch of barroom burlesque will sweeten Las Vegas’ nightlife this summer.

Tangerine Lounge & Nightclub at Treasure Island opens Fourth of July weekend, bringing a swanky new vibe to the Las Vegas Strip. A seductive staff of beautiful bartenders and burlesque dancers will tantalize guests with the hottest new trend in entertainment as pin-up girls come to life.

Tangerine will feature an indoor lounge and outdoor deck, plus a DJ spinning rock and dance with musical interludes highlighting the burlesque revue.

Leaving just enough to the imagination, Tangerine’s burlesque performances will feature the speakeasy style of the 1920’s. Bodacious one-song acts will captivate guests as bombshell performers spice things up, shimmying from evening attire down to barely-there garter belts.

"The burlesque performers will create such an incredible experience for guests" says Jennifer Worthington, co-owner of Tangerine. "They will be sultry, audacious and fun; an extraordinary addition to the nightclub experience."

With its deck overlooking Sirens Cove, Tangerine will feature premium views of the steamy Sirens of TI performances and the Las Vegas Strip. Tangerine will be all about daiquiris and steel drums during the daytime — and then a sexy, dynamic nightclub and lounge at night. International architectural firm, Graft Lab, designed Tangerine with subdued orange, amber and earth-tone hues, blurring the line between lounge and nightclub, and from the intimate interior to the open deck.

  The development of Tangerine is the next phase in TI’s dramatic evolution into one of the Strip’s hottest resorts.

"Developing a nightclub concept that holds the high standards of TI was a necessarily arduous process," says Scott Sibella, president and chief operating officer of TI. "The result is Tangerine, and it will make TI one of the nation’s premier nightlife destinations."

Cover charges will apply, pending day of the week and for special events. Hours of operation have not yet been determined. Bottle service will be available. For more information about Tangerine, including employment and special event inquiries, call (702) 212-8140.

Tangerine is a partnership between TI and partners Jennifer Worthington and Robert Frey. Worthington moved to Las Vegas after leaving her position as a senior vice president with Jerry Bruckheimer Films to form a partnership with Frey to develop innovative nightlife concepts. Their first project, Coyote Ugly Bar & Dance Saloon, was inspired by Worthington’s association with the film, and opened at New York-New York in 2001.

They then opened BiKiNiS Beach & Dance Club in October 2002 and Coyote Ugly Bar & Dance Saloon in Washington, D.C. this February. Tangerine, an upscale lounge and nightlife incorporating burlesque performances, marks their progression to launch a new realm of Las Vegas nightlife.
