World-renowned club brand Pacha is set to open their first venue in China, as the company teams up with Melco Crown Entertainment to create a superclub in Macau’s upcoming leisure resort, Studio City.
Often dubbed the “Las Vegas of Asia,” Macau, which is one of the most densely populated areas on the planet, as well as one of the richest–Macau’s gambling industry is now seven times bigger than Vegas. With branches in the London, New York, Sydney, and of course, Ibiza, moving into the ever-growing Chinese market makes perfect sense for Pacha. The brand’s reputation for glitz and glamour will certainly make for a good fit in Studio City, the as-yet-unbuilt complex that will cost $3.2 billion, and include casinos, entertainment, shopping, and even a Ferris wheel all under one roof.
The project is headed up by Pacha NYC chief Eddie Dean, and Liam Dwyer, former head of operations at Las Vegas based Light Group.
Although it’s obviously too soon to speculate on who might be a regular at the club, Pacha’s home venue in Ibiza has announced residencies for Steve Aoki, David Guetta, Martin Solveig, and Solomun this summer, to name but a few.
