Went to Marquee in Vegas on Friday night and it was easily the most craziest club I've been too. Over 3,000 people, crisp sound and awesome lighting. Music was probably not to everyone's liking on here though - Chuckie was DJing.

Went into the hip hop room to check it out and the every time the DJ played the air horn dollar bills were sprayed out from the roof

It take a lot more than dollar bills falling from the ceiling to get me to an Avicii gig.

Would have been good if they sprayed everyone with dollar coins whoever attended the Avicii gig over the weekend.

It's definitely not a superclub. The venue with a good act and a good promoter would actually be pretty damn nice. Dancefloor is an appropriate size and the DJ is right there amongst the crowd, but will it be used that way? Probably not, I don't see any one-off promoters being allowed to run club nights there or special events any time soon.

Review from last Saturday night below. Overall a pretty decent club indeed. Like every new venue though, Marquee has some really awesome unique elements and the odd teething opportunity. Will be pretty interesting to see who else they also bring out though over the next couple of months. Might even persuade some other larger Sydney clubs to improve, which can only be a good thing for the Sydney clubbing and dance music scene.

Enjoy.

If Levels is your problem with modern commercial dance music then your doing alright, give me Levels over pitbull, flo rida, guetta any and every day of the week. Its actually a decent commercial dance track, catchy hook, danceable, its not trying to be some rnb/hip hop/electro bullshit cross over.

That being said, I think there is a flo rida remix with him prancing around in ibiza......so forget what I just wrote

agreed

my mrs brother got denied. their group booked some stupid $15k table yet got denied at the door. If they are going to do that kind of shit, there won't be many left willing to fork out $15k on a table

Their door policy is a bit ridiculous. I walked past the entrance on Friday night and there was about a dozen security guards and a bunch of door staff. Call me crazy, but that many people doesn't make a place look enticing. It makes people turn away.
Surprise surprise, all of the Star staff downstairs said it was empty because of that and that they were still attempting to charge people to get in if anyone even bothered.

Someone needs to tell them that it's not Vegas and whoever runs it is a grade A idiot.

They sample the same track by Etta James, I don't think it has anything to do with Avicii - Levels.

He speaks the truth.

This club sounds shit, by the way. As IF they have the luxury of treating their punters like dirt, we'll see how long they survive.

Yes I also read this special report compiled after a week long investigation. Apparently the results were "very alarming".

A Sunday Telegraph investigation reveals traces of cocaine and ice at The Star's Marquee nightclub

http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/new...-1226341566398

lol at this comment - Whats so different about this place to any other club in sydney there is drug taking all round, people entering toilets 2/3 at a time, hearing this little sniffles, they arent going in to watch each other take a dump and inhale fart gas people.

$15k for a table? WTF?

you could fly 4 people to vegas, get accommodation at the comso, and have the best table at marquee at vegas for less than that price lol.

BTW, I stumbled upon the sound specs

"The main dancefloor speaker system is comprised of Martin Audio 12 x powered MLA Multi-cellular Loudspeaker Array and four MLX powered sub basses with 18 VHF bullet arrays to make sure is specs all the way out to 32kHz.

Elsewhere in the club the dance systems are comprised of Martin Audio W8LM line array, WSX subs all with VHF bullets with lower level bar areas catered for with 76 elements of Martin Audio Omniline line array and subs. With DJs even playing in the enormous unisex toilets a high-end Martin Ceiling speaker system was even installed to satisfy waiting punters.

QSC Audio QSys Core 1000 delivering 80 discrete channels to over 40 QSC Audio PL series amplifiers in over 120U of rack spacing and patching."
