Congratulations on hitting celebrating five years in Las Vegas!
We are thrilled to be part of the Las Vegas experience. It’s a great milestone for Hakkasan Restaurant and Hakkasan Nightclub. Vegas is a unique trend-setting market that attracts visitors seeking epic, experiential adventures. With a wide portfolio of Vegas restaurants, day clubs and nightclubs, we create experiences on a larger scale from the rest of the world.
How is Hakkasan equipped for groups?
With a robust portfolio of amazing venues, we can handle virtually any group type, from large-scale corporate events to intimate gatherings. Hakkasan Restaurant at MGM Grand has a private dining room, and its Ling Ling lounge is extremely popular for receptions and special parties.
At ARIA, Herringbone’s stunning patio is great for companies seeking outdoor venues while maintaining a private atmosphere, exemplary service and world-class cuisine. Our comprehensive, end-to-end experiences allow planners to arrange and coordinate vastly different type of events with us depending on their needs.
With Vegas expanding, including the new NFL stadium, how does Hakkasan view new opportunities ahead?
We are heavily anticipating the stadium completion and look forward to welcoming a new audience to our MGM Grand location, which has always been at the crossroads of the Strip experience. Constantly evolving and growing, Vegas is becoming increasingly international. Just look at the chefs/restaurant brands coming in from the U.S. and abroad! This only raised the standards of luxury hospitality in Vegas, where we have consistently pioneered the entertainment industry.
One trend we ushered into Vegas is engaging world-class talent in our clubs. That will only strengthen as we continue our strong relationships with DJ’s such as Calvin Harris, Tiesto, Steve Aoki, Zedd and Martin Garrix, all announcing new 2018 residences.
