The hospitality group behind Manhattan hot spots such as the Meatpacking District’s Catch and Tenjune clubs is expanding into Atlantic City, the New York Post reported. EMM Group will partner with Las Vegas-based Angel Management Group, who are behind venues like Caesar’s Palace’s nightclub Pure, to oversee the nightclubs and entertainment at Revel, the new 6.3 million-square-foot resort on the Jersey Shore.

Revel’s arrival has been met with mixed reactions. Some say the new casino will push out older, smaller casinos, while others point to Atlantic City’s unemployment rate of more than 14 percent, and say that any new development is a welcome one. The long-stalled project was saved by a pledge for tax breaks from New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

“It’s a Las Vegas-style venue meets a New York City demographic,” Eugene Remm, a founder of EMM, told the Post. He also said that EMM and Angel are considering “future collaborations in Vegas and overseas.” [Post]
