The back story of Monet's "Water Lillies," will forever fascinate audiences.
Salvador Dali's surreal paintings transcended canvas and inspired Alfred Hitchcock and modern art.
Van Gogh's life story makes Howard Hughes' biography look like a comedy.
But the art scene usually doesn't appeal to the club-goers who flock to Las Vegas every weekend. That crowd is normally on one mission: Party until sleep overcomes them and they must retreat to their hotel for a power nap.
The two worlds have combined for Planet Hollywood's return to the nightlife scene in Gallery Nightclub. While all the staples of Vegas nightclubs are present -- VIP booths, bottle service, DJs and performers -- the artistic touch adds a new element to a popular scene.
Sexy models strike a provocative pose in photos that double as wallpaper throughout the club. In lieu of run-of-the-mill go-go dancers, ladies dressed in enticing clothing provide an erotic show. Sometimes the show gets so edgy you may think you stumbled onto the set of "Eyes Wide Shut," minus Tom Cruise.
Above the dance floor is a cargo net that provides another stage for wild performances.
Aside from the artistic touches, Gallery's design maintains a classy touch you would expect to find at an art gallery. Patrons in search of bottle service will find plenty of VIP booths throughout the club, all adorned with vintage-style leather work. The booths are tiered in some areas and grouped into private coves in others. For nights with big parties on the docket there's even a few VIP seating areas in the main hall as you walk into the club.
The club makes good use of its 17,500 square feet with plenty of space for dancing between the booths, a large dance floor in the middle of the main corridor and two bars that flank the entire space.
While just two bars in a club of this size usually spells long lines and annoyed revelers, these bars are long enough to accommodate swarms of alcohol-infused partiers. Gorgeous women with plunging necklines man (or woman) the bar, making each trip worth it.
It seems with each passing weekend the club is open another celebrity hosts the party or another entertainer puts on a memorable performance. Reality TV star Kourtney Kardashian opened the club in May and since then names such as Nicki Minaj, Tito Ortiz and Vanilla Ice have made appearances.
Just like any gallery, there's plenty on display here. Art and partygoers unite.
