- The partnership between Genting Berhard and Zouk promises to bring an entirely new nightclub experience to Resorts World Las Vegas.
- The resort will feature about 100,000 square feet of immersive entertainment spaces in four areas.
- Expected to open next summer, RW Las Vegas has been under construction since 2012 due to encountering several setbacks.
- The resort’s completion comes at a time when the pandemic has hit the gaming industry globally.
The presence of Resorts World Las Vegas is already known since the Strip structure stands at 57-stories, making it the second-tallest building in the Entertainment Capital of the World.
It’s also impossible to miss the property’s 100,000-square-foot LED façade on the West Tower. However, Resorts World isn’t yet satisfied with that. It plans to implement more ways of wowing visitors, including the incorporation of what it claims will be an entirely new nightclub experience.
Malaysian-based developer and owner of the $4.3 billion Strip resort Genting Berhard has announced that it has partnered with Zouk, a Singaporean nightclub operator. Genting says Resorts World Las Vegas will feature close to 100,000 square feet of immersive entertainment spaces in four distinct environments.
Zouk Nightclub is a planned innovative space that “will become the most technologically advanced nightclub in Las Vegas.” The second space is a Southeast Asia-themed outdoor oasis called AYU Dayclub. Additionally, the resort will have RedTail, a social gaming sports bar that will include beer pong, billiards, and darts. FUHU, an experiential dining venue with an unexpected twist on modern Asian cuisine, will be the last space.
Expected to open next summer, RW Las Vegas’ three Hilton brands (Hilton Hotels, LXR Hilton, and Conrad) will offer 3,500 guestrooms. The casino will measure 117,000 square feet, with dedicated high-limit areas.
The property will also feature 350,000 square feet of meeting space, a 220,000-square-foot pool and spa complex, and fitness amenities.
While the development of RW Las Vegas began in 2012, economic conditions, redesigns, and lawsuits have continually delayed the completion of the project.
The original concept required a strong Chinese theme, featuring architecture resembling the Forbidden City, panda exhibit, mini-Great Wall of China, and several Asian-centric restaurants.
Although the property will become the most Asian-inspired complex on the Strip, Genting shifted from a focus on China during the numerous redesigns that occurred.
The bringing of Zouk into the designing and operating of the resort’s day and nighttime entertainment spaces shows Genting’s commitment to Asian guests. Currently, Zouk runs clubs in Singapore and Malaysia.
RW Las Vegas President Scott Sibella said the property aims to reinvent the conventional integrated hospitality experience in the city across all sectors, including nightlife.
RW Las Vegas faced several years of hiccups before beginning full construction in 2018. However, as the project comes towards a close, the global gaming industry is suffering a major blow from the pandemic.
No visitors from Asia are coming to Las Vegas. Most travelers from China cannot enter the US due to COVID-19 restrictions. Until a vaccine is widely available, international leisure travel is expected to remain largely grounded.
