Chateau Nightclub and Gardens, the newest nightclub on the Las Vegas Strip, opened the doors of its expansive high-tech complex, showcasing an unsurpassed amount of audio and visual entertainment space throughout. Designer and installer Bob Athey designed and built the A/V and control systems for the massive club, and chose QSC’s Q-Sys Integrated System Platform and PowerLight amplifiers as the system backbone for the entire complex.

The 45,000-square-foot club spans two levels, with a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces. The 15,000-square-foot main room, with its large spiral staircase and 10-foot tall marble fireplace, features an elevated DJ booth and giant LED screen that spans the entire length of the back wall. The 10,000-square-foot Chateau Terrace, overlooking the Strip, has another DJ booth, VIP Cabanas, Terrace Bar and dance floor. And the 20,000-square-foot Chateau Gardens, reachable via a set of glass elevators, features a rooftop dance floor, four more bars, a third DJ booth and thousands of lights. All in all, the Chateau complex encompasses more than 30 zones of audio, all networked together via Q-Sys.

“Q-Sys controls the whole thing: all the zones, throughout the bars, dance floors, and all the surrounding areas, all the cable boxes go into it, all the background music sources," says Athey. “We chose Q-Sys because of its great ability to expand the software and hardware into the future. Chateau is continually growing its audio and video capabilities, adding another big screen or a new audio zone. With Q-Sys, we don’t have to spend time adding components or routers; it’s so easy.”

Chateau also features more than 50 QSC PowerLight amplifiers, which Athey says he chose for their superior sound quality. “The PowerLights are the best sounding amplifiers for network based audio,” he says. “Together with Q-Sys as part of a whole package, QSC helped us meet our goals for the audio system as well as our budget.”

Athey continues to add onto the A/V capability at Chateau, and is in the process of adding more Q-Sys Cores and I/O's to give them the ability to “route anything anywhere.” At present, Chateau has one Q-Sys Core 1000 but will have two Core 3000’s as the club expands into the future.
