On Tuesday night. March 10, 1 OAK celebrated its Industry Anniversary party. Doors opened at 10:30pm to long lines for both general admission and bottle service, all eager to see who the night’s special surprise guest was. It turned out to be Atlanta hip hop artist ILoveMakonnen, who appropriately performed his massive hit “Tuesday.”
Makonnen and friends enjoyed a 10pm pre-show dinner at STACK Restaurant & Bar inside The Mirage Hotel & Casino. The group enjoyed the restaurant’s contemporary menu and signature cocktails.
At 12:30am, Makonnen made his way over to 1 OAK where he was greeted by a throng of fans still trying to get into the club for his performance. After having security clear a path for him to get to the front door, he appeared on the red carpet, posed for photos, and then was quickly whisked inside 1 OAK to his VIP table where bottles of Patron Silver, Grey Goose and Heineken were awaiting him. It couldn’t have been a busier night with local support filling the club for their favorite Tuesday night party.
At 1:20am Makonnen jumped on stage, mic in hand and quickly had the crowd right where he wanted them. He performed a three song set, opening with his first chart topping hit, then performed “Man of the Party” and wrapped it up with “Tuesday.”
As he was leaving, Makonnen said, “This was one of the best parties I’ve been to in a long time. You guys really know how to celebrate.” The crowd partied until the lights came on which was well after 4am. Makonnen is going back to NYC then New Orleans and continues performing around the country until his tour begins in April.
