Just be­cause Wynn’s Liv­ing Room is no longer mem­bers- only doesn’t mean you’ll get in. Ti­mothy Sheldon ex­plains.

The VIP room within In­trigue has, af­ter a year of op­er­a­tion, dropped its mem­bers-only pol­icy. But that doesn’t mean you’re get­ting into the lounge where Justin Bieber, Ri­hanna, and Gigi Hadid have par­tied. You’ll have to ne­go­ti­ate your way past 6’6” door­man (and for­mer pro soc­cer player) Ti­mothy Sheldon, who read all he could find about Stu­dio 54 gate­keeper Marc Be­necke, and stud­ied Page Six to help de­ter­mine whom he should em­brace and whom he should bounce

. It seems like the best way to get into an ex­clu­sive spot is to be a celebrity, a real es­tate heir, or a model. Any tips for peo­ple who aren’t? “The best way to come in if you don’t know any­body is to have a nice at­ti­tude. A smile helps. Any­body who’s got five drinks in them or is pushy, that kind of en­ergy won’t work. Con­versely, if a cou­ple comes in and they’re out on some kind of hol­i­day, they’ve got great en­ergy and are ar­tic­u­late and dress well, they have a value. It could be the down­town skate­board kid with paint on his nails be­cause he’s done graf­fiti all day. Some­times, you want to mix it up. You don’t want a bunch of bankers in there. A room full of beau­ti­ful women is bor­ing if no­body else is there.” There’s no social me­dia at the Liv­ing Room. “This room is not sup­posed to be a place ev­ery­body knows about. If you’re XYZ celebrity who just broke up with your wife and you want to blow off steam with your boys, you come here and I take care of you and no­body knows about it. Un­for­tu­nately, with just the wrong hand­ful of peo­ple, the room is all wrong. I don’t have a re­quire­ment of money we have to make. It’s about the in­tegrity of the room.”

For those lucky enough to make it past Ti­mothy Sheldon (LEFT) to the for­merly mem­bers- only Liv­ing Room, this serene scene awaits. Plus, you can watch the ac­tion in ad­join­ing In­trigue from be­hind the safety of a two- way mir­ror. FROM LEFT: Liv­ing Room gue
