The Star tonight unveiled their latest weapon in the Australian casinos wars - all part of the battle for the entertainment dollar.
The pitch reads...
Internationally acclaimed nightclub operator Tao Group is set to bring a monumental change to Sydney's nightlife landscape with the opening of Marquee - The Star Sydney in late March 2012.
Marquee - The Star Sydney will be located on the entire top tier of The Star's new Pirrama Road harbourside entrance, commanding expansive views of Sydney Harbour and the city skyline. With nearly 20,000 square feet of floor space, the venue is designed to house three distinct spaces within the one venue to cater for different tastes and moods.
The Main Room will feature a 30-foot projection stage with an LED DJ booth and two dance floors.
In contrast, a stylish Library style room will offer an intimate lounge experience, accentuated by a working fireplace.
Venturing further into the venue, club-goers will come across the Boom Box, with a separate DJ, state-of-the-art sound system and outdoor patio. There is also a chill-out area with unparalleled views of the Sydney skyline and a unisex "bathroom lounge".
Furnished with dynamic and unique interiors, the venue will have a retail store and separate VIP entrance for quick entry from street level.

We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who made today a success, and we'll see you back at The Star again soon.
