Angel flies from Hard Rock

A little more than a year after Angel Management Group stepped in to take over the operations and marketing of Rehab (and shortly thereafter, Vanity and the entire Hard Rock Beach Club), AMG and the Hard Rock Hotel are parting ways effective, Nov. 1. AMG, though, will continue to operate Tiësto in Concert at The Joint, in addition to its other clubs and pools, including Wet Republic, Studio 54, Pure and LAX.

Morgans Hotel Group settled with Brookfield Asset Management in March to turn over operations of the hotel-casino following Morgans’ loan default. Since then, Rare 120 has been jettisoned at the property and replaced with 35 Steaks + Martinis, which is being run in-house. The party spots at the property were previously handled by the Hard Rock Nightlife Group.

If the trend is to dial things back to 2009, maybe that means they’ll reopen Wasted Space in a corner of the sports book.
