Waits Twins Reunited For Wynn's Tryst

9/23/2006 12:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Two of Vegas' leading nightlife operators have reunited to make the nightclub Tryst at the Wynn Las Vegas perhaps the most buzzed-about nightclub on the Strip, and what's even more appealing about their story is that, even in the cutthroat and often downright nasty world of Vegas club land, Cy and Jesse Waits have managed to keep it in the family -- they're twins.

The brothers Waits landed in Vegas from southern California in the late '90s and cut their nightlife-impresario teeth helping to amp up the profile of the House of Blues; they made "Thursday Night Fever" and "House of Blues Sundays" two of the hottest parties in a town where rambunctious parties aren't exactly scarce. The pair parted ways in 2001 to take on separate assignments; eventually, Cy became the GM at Tabu Ultra Lounge and Jesse took the same job at Drai's After Hours, one of Vegas' most unrelentingly popular celeb-boîtes.

Then hotelier Steve Wynn brought the well-connected Victor Drai on to take over operations at his hotel's club La Bete with an aim to transforming the troubled spot, and thereupon Drai hired Cy and Jesse to bring the club up to Wynn's famously exacting standards. And by any standard, they've done well: The club has become, almost from the time it opened earlier this year, a regular stop for a glittering panoply of celebs, from the Hiltons to Jessica Simpson to Usher to Jay-Z, all of whom enjoy the beautiful-people treatment in the VIP area (pictured right).

And, finally, the guys seems to be enjoying the fruits of their labors. Even their parents' friends, as they tell us here sitting in front of the club's signature 90-foot cascade, are giving them props back home.

Ugh how is this celebrity news? They'r just nobody's with money.

sorry, but money doesn't make you famous, unless you're semi-attractive, but

we're working to eliminate that whole thing.

Oh no, 2 rich semi-attractive guys. I wonder how long it will take Paris and Lindsey to be screwing their brains out.

You know the 2 slut smell money and a good time miles away. I give it until the end and next week and Paris will be photographed with one or both of them.

Hopefully, these two brothers are not after skanks, because Lindsay and Paris will be moving to Vegas real soon.

And maybe if we all get lucky, they will kill each other over who is the better brother.

This is really funny because right now on TMZ'S sidebar ( to the right of the screen.) It says that this is the MOST POPULAR STORY !!!

That's interesting since at the time they posted that there were only 2 comments on the subject. I think on the weekends they go on auto pilot at TMZ and some malfuctioning computer isn't processing the information correctly. ( probably one that caught a virus from all those Paris Hilton comments !!! ha ha lol...........

Stop hating    

I dont understand why kim would say "They'r just nobody's with money", what part of the article talked about money? You must be busy with your great career being able to log on @ Posted at 1:58PM on Sep 23rd 2006 and trash talk to young people moving their way up the cooperate ladder and being apart of Steve Wynn's success. Maybe you just had a few minutes to hate between your multiple business meetings while making nothing to show for it.

and Gianna "And maybe if we all get lucky, they will kill each other over who is the better brother", I hope your referring to Paris and Lindsey? Otherwise you have some seriuos issues and maybe you and kim should hook-up and go on a hating spree together since it sounds like you too couldnt go on any other type of sprees.

I have meet both of these guys personally and they are 2 of the most humble guys I have ever met. In addition to being humble they really dont care about "the money", they are the type of guys that would rather be reconized for a job well done. These guys have every right to be proud of what they have done and continue to do.

....and in regards to TrYsT that place ROCKS! Never had a better time in my life, it has to be the hottest club in the country forget about just Vegas.

I have never heard of these guys, but this is the best club on the Strip. I was out in Vegas in April, and we girls hit 8 different clubs and a couple of hotel bars in 4 days. Tryst was the best, friendliest, and the best decor. The club opens up thru three big doors to a patio area the surrounds a pool On one end of the pool is a waterfall. I don't care if these guys help step up the business at Tryst as long as I can still get in. Rock on!!!!!

I couldn't agree more with the comment about these guys being so humble. They are a breath of fresh air when it comes to the club business. They have worked so hard to be where they are and deserve everything that they have received. Mr. Wynn only surrounds himself with the best of the best and it is clear he got the best with the Waits. Tryst is by far the best club in the world.
