With nearly 20,000 square feet of floor space, the venue is designed to house three distinct spaces within the one venue to cater for different tastes and moods.
The recently opened Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas boasts an impressive roster of resident DJs, including Erick Morillo, Kaskade, Red Foo from LMFAO, DJ Chuckie and DJ Vice. Guests at the club’s grand opening party included A-list celebrities Jay Z, Beyonce, Chris Martin, Gwyneth Paltrow, Cameron Diaz, Rihanna, Kanye West, Mark Wahlberg and Blake Lively.
Noah Tepperberg, from Tao Group said:
“Our team is looking forward to bringing the Marquee brand to Sydney while creating a venue with a distinct Sydney style and personality. Its been great to see The Star unfold into an impressive casino and hotel, and now dining and entertainment complex, and we are excited to work with the talented Australian based team.“
Marquee – The Star, Sydney
Located on the entire top floor of The Star’s glass façade harbourside entrance, Marquee – The Star, Sydney will have a capacity of more than 1,200 people. Patrons will be able to transition between three lavish rooms and various music experiences.
The Main Room will feature a 30 foot projection stage with an LED DJ booth and two dance floors. In contrast, a stylish library-style room will offer an intimate lounge experience, accentuated by a working fireplace. Venturing further into the venue, club-goers will come across the Boom Box, with a separate DJ, state-of-the-art sound system and outdoor patio. There is also a chill-out area with unparalleled views of the Sydney skyline and a unisex “bathroom lounge”.
Furnished with dynamic and unique interiors, the venue will have a retail store and separate VIP entrance for quick entry from street level.
The Star has undergone an $870 million redevelopment and expansion and now offers more than 20 restaurants, bars and cafes, a new luxury boutique lifestyle hotel called The Darling, a 16 room day spa, a luxury retail collection, and upscaled gaming areas. David Chang, the Michelin-starred chef and owner of New York’s Momofuku, also opened his first venture outside of the US at The Star. Momofuku Seiōbo opened in October 2011 and has already found critical success with its innovative take on cuisine.
