An Oz-eye View of Marquee

Around 1,200 people came out last night for the opening of Marquee Sydney inside the Star Casino. The 20,000-square-foot nightclub and its surrounding complex has been dubbed “Sin City Sydney.” (Maybe, but there’s only one true smelly alley behind O’Sheas.) Inside, we found girls gyrating behind glass swathed in snakes, a Champagne service station in the restroom and, of course, a midget (every party needs one) entertaining Sydney’s top socialites.

In addition to the little person Vegas also imported some of its other finest, including Redfoo and his Party Rock crew, Afrojack and his princess Paris (who really described her boyfriend as “my best friend and the best DJ in the world”), Nick and Vanessa Lachey, Slash and wife Perla, Minka Kelly, Ashlee Simpson and slightly over saturated red-carpeter Kellan Lutz, who we suspect was also in town to open up a Hungry Jack’s (the Oz equivalent of Burger King). All drank, danced and pretended they were in Vegas (but with an ocean view) into the wee hours of the morn.

Oh and then there were the Australian celebrities but we have no idea who they are.
