Jason Strauss talks 5 successful years of Marquee Las Vegas
In celebration of Marquee Nightclubs’ 5 year anniversary, they are bringing back one of the most epic parties in the history of Las Vegas, Party Rock with Redfoo. This was one of the biggest parties to hit Las Vegas on a Monday night.
Since the anniversary is such a big deal in Las Vegas, we decided to reach out to the man himself, Jason Strauss and ask him few questions. Jason is one of the founders of Strategic Hospitality Group, who own Marquee, Tao, and LAVO.
Your venues seem to hold the test of time, what’s your secret?
We are a true hospitality company, and know that above all guest service is the most important aspect of what we do. We are also always evolving to stay at the forefront of the industry.
What is it about Marquee that keeps your customers coming back year after year?
Making sure they have a quintessential TAO Group experience each time. We have made many memorable moments with our guests over the past five years and the one thing they know is that anything can happen any given night.
What was the craziest moment that has happened at Marquee over the past 5 years?
Watching a sold-out crowd partying in bathing suits in the middle of winter under the Marquee Dayclub Dome has to be near the top.
What is the most interesting thing that has happened over the past 5 years?
Seeing the Marquee brand grow, from a small club we opened in NYC a dozen years ago, to the massive Las Vegas venue, expanding internationally to open Marquee in Sydney, Australia, and then renovating the original New York location a few years ago – it brought everything full circle.
We’ve already begun to see the shift away from headlining EDM artists as the promotional draw for nightlife venues. What is next on the horizon? Everything is cyclical and the guests want variety, which we give to them in many ways, from different artists and genres, performances and experiences.
