LAS VEGAS, Nev.—Global hospitality company Hakkasan Group has announced its latest nightlife venture, Jewel. Continuing with the next generation of luxury entertainment offerings, it will take over the former space of Haze Nightclub at Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. The destination is set to open Spring 2016.
“We are delighted to continue our relationship with longtime partners MGM Resorts International, as well as Dubai World, with this new nightclub at Aria Resort & Casino,” said Neil Moffitt, CEO of Hakkasan Group. “Our companies share a hugely successful track record together in entertainment and we look forward to providing another world-class experience for our guests.”
Designed by the internationally renowned Rockwell Group, JEWEL spans more than 24,000 square feet with a capacity of up to 1,925 guests. The multi-level venue will encompass a main club with an overlooking mezzanine level complete with five unique and secluded suites situated above the dance floor, each with its own exclusive entry. The DJ booth, a space conducive to a variety of musical performances, will lead JEWEL in pioneering a first-of-its-kind production wall featuring dual-sided LED video screens and special effects lighting, also allowing for 360-degree movement.
Bobby Baldwin, president of Aria Resort & Casino, said, “The addition of Jewel to Aria’s entertainment and nightlife portfolio will provide our guests with a new and exclusive nightclub destination. Nightlife is an integral part of the Las Vegas scene and in partnering with Hakkasan Group, we will offer a distinct experience unique to our resort.”
