After noticing the trend, some casinos, including the MGM Grand, have actually removed slots to make more space for nightclub venues.

Marquee, located at the Cosmopolitan, is a whopping 60,000 square feet and generated over $70 million for the casino in 2011, a record-breaking amount for a nightclub.

Marquee, along with many other clubs on the strip, is not open a full seven nights a week. This makes the numbers even more impressive.

“These are customers who make nightlife a priority of their visit,” said executive director of marketing fir Las Vegas Nightlife Group Bryan Bass. “Someone might stay in a three-star room over a four-star room, or eat a $25 meal, as opposed to a $100 meal. Then, what they are doing with the rest of their money is coming to the nightclubs.”
