UPDATED, Feb. 25, 5:50 p.m.: In the race to host the most extravagant open house soiree in Los Angeles, spec home developer Nile Niami is running hard for the finish line.

The celebrity developer recently hosted a $100,000 themed party that featured 500 guests, Hollywood A-listers, fire dancers and even a camel — all to generate a buzz for his $55 million home in West Hollywood, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Inspired by Hieronymus Bosch’s “The Garden of Earthly Delights,” the three floors of the 14,000-square-foot home split into different Heaven, Earth and Hell themes.

Guests were first greeted by a camel at the home’s entrance. Upstairs, a pair of nude actors could be found leading virtual reality experiences. Half-dressed women in mermaid outfits, as well as leather S&M gear, ran amok.

Other amenities included a cannabis edibles bar, violin performance and techno dance floor.

“The idea was to create something that was a combination of Burning Man, [Mexico’s] Ondalinda music festival and Coachella,” Niami told THR.

Niami’s party — thrown with the help of the Society Group — was a marketing effort to sell his personal home on Londonderry Place in the Hollywood Hills. The six-bedroom, 10-bath home, which hit the market last month, features amenities like a sensory deprivation tank and yoga room with plant walls. Branden and Rayni Williams of Hilton & Hyland have the listing.

The home is just one of the multi-million-dollar properties Niami is selling. He’s also seeking $68 million for Opus, a 20,500-square-foot spec home on Billionaire’s Row in Beverly Hills.

Similarly to the Londonderry party, Niami and his public relations firm employed sex as a key element when they released a racy listing video to market the home in 2017. [THR] — Natalie Hoberman
