Sparkler-topped bottles of Perrier-Jouet were shooting off in every direction as guests celebrated the one-year anniversary of Macau’s premier club, Cubic, last Saturday. Though the night was filled with acrobatic dance shows and multiple DJs, the climax of the party was a performance by British Pop singer Taio Cruz.
Taio Cruz worked the crowd and went through several of his well known hits.[photopress:taio_cruz_macau_cubic_anniversary_party.jpg,full,pp_image] [photopress:taio_cruz_concert_club_cubic_macao_macau.jpg,full,pp_image] [photopress:taio_cruz_concert_macau_china.jpg,full,pp_image] [photopress:taio_cruz_cubic_club_macao_china_show.jpg,full,pp_image] [photopress:cubic_macau_lmfao_taio_cruz_concert.jpg,full,pp_image]
The atmosphere was charged as guests danced on their seats and even jumped up onto the stage towards the end of the night. A strong contingent of Hong Kong’s nightlife royalty came out to support and join in the celebration.

There are certain things that Cubic does better than its Hong Kong counterparts.
For example, although they play mainstream music, Cubic’s resident djs have a greater repertoire than what you typically hear from Hong Kong djs who play the same genre.
The champagne service at Cubic was also impressive by comparison. Arriving at a table, the wait staff held the champagne bottles high, letting the sparklers burn down as they stood before the customers. This maximizes the experience for guests, and encourages more bottle sales.[photopress:champagne_cubic_macau_club_bar.jpg,full,pp_image]
Additionally, the staff didn’t pour champagne indiscriminately into every glass sitting on the table, but carefully made sure the glasses being filled were in fact in use. This is an important distinction. Often in Hong Kong, the waitstaff are only concerned with getting you to order another bottle, and will blindly pour champagne into every glass that’s laying around, wasting it.
In honor of their anniversary, Cubic collaborated with Made By Monsters, a Hong Kong toy firm to release the “Cubic Charlie Grin” figure. The large scale versions of the limited edition figures by toy designer Ron English were prominently displayed on stage and in other areas of the club.[photopress:club_cubic_anniversary_macau_city_of_dreams.jpg,full,pp_image]
The neon installation art was also a stylish touch.[photopress:cubic_macau_macao_anniversary_party.jpg,full,pp_image]
Happy anniversary and congratulations to Paco, John, Bosco and the rest of the Cubic family!
