Celebrity nightclub brand Avalon closes after two years

SINGAPORE - After two years, brand name nightclub Avalon will be closing its doors after this weekend.

Its last day of operations will be this Saturday, a post on Avalon's official Facebook page today said.

The post read: "It has been a wonderful two years of partying, dancing, late nights and early mornings. Thank you for your continued love and support, as we would like to dedicate this closing weekend to all of you."

The American superclub, which takes up a sprawling space of 1,486 sq m at one of two floating crystal pavilions at Marina Bay Sands, opened to much fanfare in 2011.

Life! could not contact Avalon for comment but a spokesman for Marina Bay Sands said that the club is closing for renovations. "We would like to clarify that the night club Avalon, located in the crystal pavilion at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, will be closing for renovations soon and will reopen its doors at a later stage."

She did not say if the club will retain the Avalon brand name when it relaunches.

Avalon, which has a branch in Hollywood, is considered a celebrity nightspot brand known for its glamorous crowd and bringing in international recognised names in the dance music industry, including rapper Ludacris, Italian DJ Benny Benassi, American DJ Steve Aoki, and dance act The Chemical Brothers.

In the past few months, it seemed Avalon Singapore had brought in fewer international guest DJs to spin at its nightclub, and currently has only one local resident DJ listed on its website.

In comparison, clubs such as Fenix Room, Dream and Mink, managed by LifeBrandz, and The Butter Factory, have several resident DJs rostered each week. Zouk has international guest DJs spinning every weekend.
