If you’re an avid reader of GDD™ then first of all, thank you. Secondly, you might remember our recap of the Marquee Las Vegas One Year Anniversary party from the beginning of January. The kind folks at Marquee treated head honcho Jonah Berry and myself to one of the best dinners I’ve ever had, an informative and insightful panel discussion with Marquee resident Tim Bergling, aka AVICII, and one of the brains behind Marquee, Jason Strauss. The video above is just a quick recap (with a special guest cameo by Jonah and myself at 0:33!) with excellent footage from the festivities, where AVICII really had the place going wild.
With pool season just around the corner (launching sometime in April) one can only imagine how the summer is going to shape up at one of the best new venues in the World. Check dates for the Nightclub below, and stay tuned for more news about Marquee in the near future.

Happy Monday! I have news featuring the 2012 Marquee residencies, Skrillex, Bromance Record’s Pipes, and Boys Noize & Mr. Oizo’s tracks from their new project. Please read on after the jump.
It was a few short years ago that nightclub impresario Jason Strauss was in Ibiza, chatting with four of his main competitors regarding rumblings they had heard of his next venture. Rumor had it he was opening a nightclub dedicated solely to dance music that would be the 62,000 square foot, 128 times per minute beating heart of a brand new casino in the Las Vegas desert. He confirmed their suspicions…they told him he was out of his fucking mind, but as the saying goes, the great ones normally are. At the time, this simply just wasn’t a successful business model, despite the current budding reputation of Vegas as the new American Ibiza. Clubs were open format, mostly hip-hop, except for a few of the midweek nights. Just last January that new venture became Marquee Las Vegas, and in one short year the club has established itself as one of the premiere nightlife destinations on the planet.
Upcoming projects for Jason and his partners include announcing a new Marquee-brand venue overseas, giving a major facelift for their New York City location, and undergoing a complete overhaul of the Marquee Las Vegas Dayclub for next summer (that will apparently install some infrastructure to allow the outdoor club that’s featured some of 2011’s best pool party line-ups to send flying humans – amongst other things – through the air).
2012 will see exclusive Las Vegas club residencies (that means these artists aren’t ruled out for EDC 2012) from Above & Beyond, ATB, Benny Benassi, Chuckie, Dirty South, Erick Morillo, and Kaskade, and that’s just who is returning. The new residencies they plan on announcing in the coming month I’m sure will positively blow our collective mind.
