    It's interesting to see MGM launch continued partnerships with the Arabs - as both entities have struggled with substantial debt load. However, instead of straining the relationship (as many pundits thought), it appears the partnership is stronger than ever.

    Is the Hakkasan brand even that popular in Vegas for the longhaul?

    I don't think there is any relationship between the Abu Dhabi based firm that owns Hakkasan and Dubai World who MGM's partnered with on CityCenter.

    Don't worry about Dubai World's debt load. Its all a ruse since its backed by the UAE and one of the biggest sovereign wealth funds in the world. No way they let any major Dubai World project go under. They proved that back in 2009 with the parent company debt.

    Hakkasan started in London.

    FWIW, I really enjoyed my meal and drinks at Hakkasan LV and I'm not a club person. The food was legit. A lot of their locations have Michlean Stars.
