Hakkasan at the MGM in Las Vegas is setting the bar high for any of its competitors and some are not sure how they will compete with such a venue. Hakkasan has signed four of the world’s top DJs to two-year deals in a $65 million plus contract, including Tiesto and Dead Mau5. We have all been waiting and wondering when this Ultimate restaurant/nightclub would really be open for business and now we know… open date is set for April 2013, the original date was New Year’s Eve, but was pushed back.
Hakkasan is acclaimed worldwide for its Michelin-starred modern Cantonese cuisine. The brand continues to grow from strength to strength with international outposts in London, Middle East, and India. This Hakkasan Restaurant and Nightclub in Las Vegas will be the most lavish of them all. Turning heads before it is even finished, the upscale dining experience with a lounge and nightclub, offers an unique experience unlike any of their other locations.
Hakkasan’s five-story building is managed by the Angel Management Group that has brought you venues, such as Pure Nightclub, Wet Republic, LAX Nightclub and many, many more. This 75,000 square foot compound will also include a pool. And it has been said this creation all started when a regular high roller was turned down at a specific table he wanted at another luxurious nightspot. In order to teach them a lesson he decided to open his own place.
