Festivities began Friday night at Surrender Nightclub. Phelps was joined by Olympic gold medalist and training partner Allison Schmitt, and poker star Phil Hellmuth. He was given a hero’s welcome with deafening cheers from the packed house as he entered the DJ booth joining his friend, Dutch electronic dance music sensation Afrojack who was spinning his hits for the capacity crowd. Phelps fired off the nitro cannon into the crowd and then got on the mic and exclaimed “This is my first night of retirement at Surrender!” He then threw back a shot of chilled Grey Goose vodka with Afrojack kicking off the night of fun, frolic and great music.

The celebration continued today at Encore Beach Club as Phelps partied in a luxury bungalow overlooking the sea of pool partiers enjoying the beautiful late summer day and music by crossover superstar DJ David Guetta. Phelps was joined by Schmitt, fellow Olympic gold medalist swimmers Nathan Adrian and Charles Houchin, and several other friends.

Phelps was surprised and delighted when Encore Beach Club’s lovely bikini-clad servers presented him with a cake paying tribute to the 22 Olympic medals he won during his swimming career, the most ever for any Olympian.

Phelps and Schmitt then worked their way down past the pool where they greeted fans and got numerous pats on the back before joining Guetta in the DJ booth. The crowd roared with excitement and spontaneously began chanting “USA! USA! USA!” as the Olympians beamed with pride, grinning from ear to ear, soaking it all in. The excitement continued as Steve Wynn and his wife Andrea Hissom entered the DJ booth and joined in the memorable moment.
