The Strip scene has been anxiously awaiting Hakkasan Group’s plans for the former Haze nightclub at Aria, and now we know what’s up. Jewel is set to open in the spring, another multi-level venue designed by the Rockwell Group. The DJ booth will be “conducive to a variety of musical performances,” teasing the trend of live performance, and will have dual-sided LED video screens and 360-degree movement. Five secluded suites will be situated above the dancefloor at the 24,000-square-foot-plus venue.
