Hakkasan Buys Angel Management Group

The Hakkasan Group has acquired Las Vegas nightlife and entertainment company Angel Management Group. Angel manages venues such as Hakkasan at the MGM Grand, Pure Nightclub at Caesars Palace, Wet Republic Ultra Pool at the MGM Grand, and the Social House at the Shops at Crystals. It also runs HQ Beach Club and HQ Nightclub at Revel in Atlantic City.

The acquisition, according to a news release, will “provide Hakkasan Group with significant day-to-day operational capability and infrastructure, which will enable it to further expand its brand and hospitality operations in North America.”

Hakkasan is in an acquisitive mood. Recently it bought Enlightened Hospitality Group, the parent company of San Diego nightclub Stingaree and a group of restaurants owned by TV chef Brian Malarkey.
