Billionaire spurned in L.V. backs Hakkasan at MGM Grand

Hakkasan at the MGM Grand is a massive club with massive amounts of money involved. The rest of us in the world can only dream of having enough money to pour into a club where expenses didn’t matter. The words unlimited budget are mentioned below in the article.

Some people out there are wondering when the bubble will burst on all of this but I can’t see it happening anytime soon with this much cash involved. The world will always want to dance and party.

From the Las Vegas Sun:

“The Hakkasan venture is bankrolled and backed by a mega-wealthy Middle East billionaire. He was a regular high roller at another luxurious Las Vegas nightspot but became disgruntled when he was turned down for a specific table that he wanted one night. He said he was disrespected; he said he’d open his own place to teach them a lesson.

“So he backed the project and told Angel Management that it didn’t matter how much it took to make the Hakkasan project in Las Vegas the best in the world. He said it was an unlimited budget. He wanted to ensure that his previous nightclub hangout knew they’d done the wrong thing by him.

“He’s going to ensure whatever it costs that they learn a lesson. He will have the best club in the world, and nobody will ever match it. He wants the world’s top, best DJs, and he’s got them in contracts to ensure nobody else can have them.

Read the rest here from the Las Vegas Sun. Read the rest, it’s worth it.
