Las Vegas, Nevada - Gay visitors to Las Vegas will soon have their own club on the famed Las Vegas Strip with Krave scheduled to open October 1.

Workers have spent months creating the club located next door to the Aladdin Hotel and the first to be located on the Strip. Krave is the creation of Sia Amiri, the former owner of RAGE, West Hollywood's landmark gay bar.

To run the entertainment, Amiri has brought in event producer Jeffrey Sanker (pictured).

Sanker has mounted some of the biggest gay mega balls and events in the US.

Of one of Sanker's events a reviewer gushed "Jeffrey Sanker is to parties what Martha Stewart is to obsessive holiday decorating."

The premiere show at Krave will be called "Everything You Desire."

"It's a place to give in to your inner-most desires with music from the world's most sought after DJ's, astonishing state-of-the art lighting and sound, tantalizing restaurant and bar areas, and electrifying live entertainment -- all ignited inside a captivating, intriguing and sensual interior," said an enthusiastic Amiri.

In addition to Krave, Amiri has been responsible for some of Los Angeles' and Las Vegas' most popular nightclubs and restaurants, including: Chez Moi in Beverly Hills, Wave Restaurant & Bar at the Beverly Center in Los Angeles, Crustacean Restaurant in Beverly Hills and Prana/Crustacean Restaurant and Nightclub in Las Vegas.

Amiri said Las Vegas is becoming increasingly popular with gays with the LGBT community representing 54 billion dollars in annual spending power.
