Local and international partygoers need to get their dancing shoes ready if they come to Singapore’s biggest club, complete with a massive indoor Ferris wheel called the Big Q with 8 pods. The pods even come with a webcam photobooth and a selfie ring light to make sure its guests look great.  

The photobooth also allows the partygoers to create gifs and receive it via e-mail. These moving images are ready to post as boomerangs on social media.

Additionally, Marquee also has 3-story slides named Sunny Slide Up, filled with flashing lights for an exhilarating psychedelic experience. This feature is expected to draw in all the kids at heart.

The marquee has been unleashing party animals in Las Vegas, New York, and Sydney. It made Asia news on its first debut on the continent. With a Great Gatsby meets Crazy Rich Asians vibe, this nightclub will definitely spoil every partygoer.

The sprawling party club will undeniably make every guest feel comfortable whether or not they decide to open tables or not. The club boast tons of free-roaming areas and amazing seats where guests can chill instead of awkwardly standing near the dance floor.

Its huge dancefloor is set to fit hundreds of dancing clubbers simultaneously as they dance to the beats of the biggest DJs of the world.

One of the unique and over-the-top features of the night club is its state of the art screens with 8k resolution. This makes way for a realistic and stunning visual to lift the mood of their guests. The gargantuan screens can also be used for media hosting and private events.

The nightclub was brought to Singapore by Marina Bay Sands and TAO group.
