The party ride of your life with 9Group’s mood director
By Kiko Miyasato
If you’re looking for the ultimate one-man party starter, look no further than Bryan Robinson, 9Group’s mood director. The Florida native joined 9Group about six months ago—it’s the company responsible for throwing Ghostbar Dayclub (GBDC) at Palms, the wickedest and wildest daytime party, every Saturday. “We have the science of the party down. From the time you exit our elevators at GBDC, you’re thrown right into the mix,” Robinson said.
As mood director, Robinson keeps the party and the people at peak level from the time GBDC starts at around 1 p.m. till it shuts down around 6 p.m. Once you step off the elevator, “You get a bubble gun, tube of confetti and chances are there’s gonna be me saying, ‘Are you ready to have a great time or what?!’ We’re pulling you in for a ride, an experience,” Robinson said.
Robinson, the self-proclaimed people person (and probably one of the coolest people you’ll meet in Vegas), has been in the nightlife industry for close to a decade, first starting out as a flair bartender. Now, he’s a part of making the parties ones to remember, and that includes GBDC’s over-the-top New Year’s Eve weekend shindig. “I’m going to ensure that while you’re in town you’re going to have a blast. You’re just going to want to party with me all the time!”
“If you come to GBDC, (I) ensure that you’ll have the time of your life … that’s a bold statement to make, but I guarantee it,” he said.
While GBDC has some pretty wild ways to get tipsy (beer bongs and a contraption called the Shotski that allows multiple people to take a shot at the same time), it also boasts an impressive cocktail menu. The Purple Wolfberry is mixed with Bacardi Wolf Berry rum, POM and pineapple juices and lychee syrup. If you plan on throwing down some cash for a bottle, “all eyes in the club will be on you. Whenever you order a bottle at GBDC, you’re gonna get a mobile party,” Robinson said.
