The Coming Las Vegas Nightclub War
The Las Vegas nightlife scene is without a doubt on the verge of a massive and all out war, and there’s nothing cold about it! This week marks the emergence of what is billed as the biggest nightclub ever built in Vegas. While that is no small feat, the new restaurant/multi-storied nightclub will represent a new era in Sin City nightclubs, it will be called Hakkasan Las Vegas. This new instigator sits in front of the MGM, let’s just say the venue itself looks like it could be its own casino towering three stories above Las Vegas Boulevard. Construction has been in the works for months now as everybody continually wondered just what this new addition to the Strip would be.
Evolution of The Vegas Nightclub
Hakkasan is a popular Cantonese restaurant chain that has already made it big, now the vaunted franchise looks to Las Vegas to roll the dice and test its fortunes. But the evolution of the club scene over the past ten years has resulted in what would inevitably be called “the battle of the clubs”. The first major nightclub spots such as Pure and The Beach (to name a few) proved the industry had potential beyond anybodies wildest dreams. Around 2008 Las Vegas took an economic hit that ranked it among the cities who managed to lose the most in the recession. This hit also came in the form of tourism loss as casino’s inevitably had to up their rates to balance out the bottom line, this resulted in a scramble to look for alternative ways to get guests spending money any way they could. By this time there were a few high end clubs conveniently positioned along the top dollar resorts that could weather the economic downturn, clubs like Pure were rumored to sometimes have $1,000,000 dollar nights!(No Exaggeration)
While huge figures like this were only mentioned in rumors of course, the stars proved those rumors true as some of the biggest names in entertainment could be spotted hosting parties or just having a good time! This all proved that a new industry was ready to be tapped, Vegas may have had a long way to go at that point, but little did anybody know what the future would hold. Now with resident DJ’s on the strip landing contracts worth tens of millions of dollars, it is becoming clear that the electronic Dance Music scene is building a completely new and competitive industry that fits Vegas just right.

With top DJ’s capable of selling out popular venues, the economic possibilities have become endless. A Multi-Million dollar club now has the potential to pack the house night after night by signing topDJ’s to resident contracts not at all different from the old days when the mighty lounge crooners dominated the entertainment scene. These new artists are proving to be the next generation of major on-stage entertainment, as far as profitability goes, a club can host a rock band or two or a rapper who can do at the most 2 to2 1/2 hour sets, with EDM DJ’s they can drag sets out to sometimes four hours without losing a drop of energy from the crowd. It’s the new formula that is going to result in an all out battle between clubs not only for the hottest DJ’s on the market, but for new and emerging talent that will set their spot apart from the rest.
The possibilities are so great that nobody has any doubts that Hakkasan will be an instant hit and become good friends with Las Vegas Boulevard. With three stories of nightclub and a top-notch restaurant that’s even Michelin rated, it proves that it takes imagination and a new approach if you want to make it big in Las Vegas, that was always the case though wasn’t it?
