The Hakkasan nightclub in Las Vegas' MGM Grand has delayed its opening until early spring. The club has signed several DJs in multimillion-dollar deals, and industry professionals are wondering how the venture is obtaining the money to cover the construction and contracts. "The Hakkasan venture is bankrolled and backed by a mega-wealthy Middle East billionaire. He was a regular high roller at another luxurious Las Vegas nightspot but became disgruntled when he was turned down for a specific table that he wanted one night. He said he was disrespected; he said he'd open his own place to teach them a lesson," one source says.
