Genevieve Cleary Brings Broadway Instincts to Vegas’ Hottest Clubs

You may not have heard of producer-choreographer Geneviève Cleary, but it’s almost impossible to ignore the mark she’s left on the Las Vegas club scene.

“I feel like I’m a secret weapon of the industry,” the Montreal-born nightlife maven jokes of her behind-the-scenes status.

As CEO and creator of Belluscious, a live entertainment production company, Cleary has become the industry’s go-to girl for spectacular shows that blur the line between party and performance. In 2009, she helped launch Paul Oakenfold’s Perfecto residency at the Palms and has continued to transform traditional DJ sets into all-out entertainment experiences with a blend of vignettes, choreography and over-the-top costumes.

Cleary has given Marquee its signature coyness and sass as the club’s artistic and performance director, and she will hold the same position at Hakkasan when it opens this spring.
