The Star Sydney to cease operations at Marquee

The Star Sydney has revealed plans to cease operations at Marquee nightclub. Recently appointed CEO Scott Wharton said it was time for the business to move in a different direction with the highly popular venue.

Scott Wharton said: “We have a good and long-standing relationship with the owners of the Marquee brand.”

“They are an excellent partner, and we will discuss doing more with them in the premium hospitality space.

“In this instance, it’s about looking at other food and beverage options that will further enhance The Star Sydney as a world-class tourism and entertainment destination.”

Wharton said it was expected Marquee would close later in 2022 and the redeployment of any impacted staff would be a top priority.

Wharton added: “Incidents and issues have surfaced at times and that creates additional pressures to meet the standards we expect of ourselves.”

“It’s a tough call to make but if we’re going to earn back the trust and confidence of all our stakeholders, we need to assess and react accordingly on how we run our operations.”
