Nightclub & Bar magazine announced its Top 100 list last week, and for the fourth time, XS at Encore had the highest revenue of any American nightclub, with earnings above $90 million. Marquee landed just below XS, bringing in $85-$90 million (last year the two were tied for the top spot), followed by its big-sister club, Tao ($50-$55 million), ahead of No. 4 Surrender by only an estimated $5 million. In total, Las Vegas landed seven party spots in the top 10 and 24 overall. Next year, Hakkasan and Light will qualify for official placement, the former a likely challenger to XS’ chart-topping reign.
Marquee packs on the news this week: Bass/EDM DJ Carnage recently announced his semi-regular Monday residency, Black and White, starting on March 24. And Kaskade kick-starts both his Summer Lovin’ residency and the dayclub’s official season on April 5. Too impatient? The wet spot will actually be open weekends this month starting March 7, thanks to the temperature-controlled QDome. In other pool-party news, Bare at Mirage and Liquid at Aria unlock their doors on March 13.
