With lots of major nightclub opening talk (Hakkasan and Beacher’s Madhouse coming to the MGM Grand, Light and Ushuaia Beach Club at Mandalay Bay and The Delano, along with the Drai’s redo) in the pipeline, we are now hearing loud whispers of yet another project.
High level nightlife insiders have hinted that Tao Group could open a 60,000-square-foot club come 2014 inside The Cosmopolitan. The idea would be to create a full-on carnival-like experience designed to capture the essence of the Electric Daisy Carnival.
What’s interesting is that The Cosmo actually has the space. From their most recent SEC filing they say, “An approximately 65,000-square-foot, 1,800-seat showroom, the top 4 floors of the East Tower and a restaurant space (the “Future Phases”) will be completed at a later date as management deems appropriate based on various factors, including market conditions.” Perhaps the opening of five new megaclubs means that market conditions have dictated the “showroom” be repurposed as a club?
A rep for Tao Group referred us to The Cosmopolitan when we requested comment who in turn stated, “We have nothing to share at this time.”
