Mega clubs Pangaea and Avalon to open at Marina Bay Sands in July

Singapore's nightlife is about to get a massive boost with the upcoming launch of two mega clubs, Pangaea and Avalon
The party set will be lining up around the block to get into Avalon and Pangaea.

Marina Bay Sands' final touches are set for July with the opening of mega clubs Pangaea and Avalon.

Housed inside the distinctive southern Crystal Pavilion, Pangaea will occupy the first level of the 558 square meters space and hold up to 400 revelers at any one time. While Avalon will spread itself across two levels and more than 1,115 square meters.

But two clubs -- not to forget Ku De Ta -- in one setting, isn't that over kill?

"I don't think so," says regular nightclubber Elaine Ang. "It'll give an alternative to Ku De Ta and I'm sure all three clubs will be smart enough to have different concepts."

While Ku De Ta has the bird's-eye view advantage of the surrounding Marina Bay area, Pangaea is positioning itself as a "ultra-lounge bottle club" and Avalon has already laid the groundwork, touting its line-up of international DJ’s with the two-day Avalon At Large event (see video here) during 2010's Formula One weekend.

No doubt Marina Bay Sands has high hopes for both and is undeterred by the city's already crowded club space.

"With the creative genius of both Michael Ault of Pangaea and Steven Adelman of Avalon, we are creating an entertainment hot spot like no other in Asia," says John Postle, the executive director for The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.

Be the clubs a success or a flop, for now, all it means is the city's night revelers have two more spots to party at.
