Rapper Wiz Khalifa hosted “Wiz of Tao Halloween Spectacular” on Halloween Thursday at Tao in the Venetian. Accompanied by wife model Amber Rose, the duo made their way into the nightclub where cheers erupted as DJ Five shouted out their entrance.
Khalifa and Rose settled into a VIP table with friends on the dance floor before the Pittsburgh lyricist hopped onstage. His setlist included “Black and Yellow,” “Young, Wild and Free,” “Work Hard, Play Hard,” “Taylor Gang” and “Molly.” No dancing with Miley Cyrus, though.
The crowd sang along as Rose danced along, glow stick and all. Khalifa thanked the nighttime revelers for partying with him on Halloween before returning to his table and wife. The happy couple affectionately sang and danced the night away to the sounds of DJ Five.
Olympic speedskater and “Dancing With the Stars” champion Apolo Anton Ohno was spotted celebrating Halloween at Tao with friends at an elevated VIP table. Thanks to Al Powers of Powers Imagery for his photo gallery.

In the spirit of Venice, The Venetian is a little piece of romantic Italy right here in Las Vegas. The Venetian is an "all-suite" hotel, with rooms accented with plush linens and Italian marble. The 4,027 suites are divided into two towers: The 36-story Venetian Tower that offers guests a taste of luxurious Las Vegas and the Venezia suites, which guarantee 12 floors of high-end elegance. The top five floors are the hotel's highest level of luxury with its private access, concierge lounge, upgraded features and even a dedicated staff.
The flagship of Venetian nightlife is TAO, an ultra-hip nightclub located inside of TAO Asian Bistro. V Bar is The Venetian's super smooth ultra lounge, made by the owners of New York City's club Lotus and Los Angeles' super swank Sunset Room.
The Venetian features 19 restaurants including Thomas Keller's award-winning French restaurant Bouchon, Mario Batali's B&B Ristorante, Aquaknox for fresh seafood and the 42,000 square foot TAO Asian Bistro. There's also the food court inside the Canal Shoppes for those looking for a quick bite.
Guests can float along The Grand Canal Shops in an authentic Italian gondola ride and pass stores like Burberry and Kenneth Cole along the way. And if you haven't caught a real celeb, on the street in Vegas, you can head over to Madame Tussauds to check out a wax version.
