Global superstar and resident DJ David Guetta led the fourth-anniversary celebration of mega-club XS in Steve Wynn’s Encore. Along with the four-year milestone, XS toasted to being ranked No. 1 yet again by Nightclub & Bar, its third time in four years (as the winner, it was ineligible one of the years).

Shaggy-haired Frenchman Guetta arrived shortly after 1 a.m. and posed with XS’ executive team and anniversary cake before jumping onstage to take over for Sultan & Ned Shepard. The evening included a spinning DJ booth to maximize Guetta’s musical talents.

His set included his hits, dubstep mixes and partygoers singing along to “Titanium,” “Without You” and “She Wolf” -- no Sia, Usher or Shakira sightings, though -- and he spun until the early hours of the morning.

Managing Partner Jesse Waits recently said, “We have no plans to slow down any time soon. Our executive team works day and night to ensure that we offer our guests stellar events, celebrated DJs, impeccable service and an incomparable experience for years to come.”

Other XS executives at the celebration included Eric White, assistant general manager; John Wood, executive director of VIP services; Yannick Mugnier, executive director of operations; Zee Zandi, director of nightlife entertainment; and Ronn Nicolli, director of nightlife marketing.
