After a successful three-year run, upscale nightspots Mink and Royal Room at the Pan Pacific Singapore hotel are making way for a new club and a restaurant.

Club lounge Royal Room closed about two weeks ago, while nightclub Mink's last party will be tomorrow night.

Taking over the two outlets will be a new modern dining restaurant and a luxe commercial dance club. Both concepts are expected to launch in July.

Massive Collective, which operates Royal Room and Mink, noted that the time was ripe for new changes and that the clubs had "run their course".

Massive did not say how much will be spent on the revamp, but that the outlets will have "a brand new state-of-the art L Acoustics sound system and a high-resolution LED wall" among the new fittings.

Mink and Royal Room, which are co-owned by nightlife group LifeBrandz and F&B operator The Prive Group, opened in 2011 and quickly became leading nightspots in Singapore.

On weekends, the 3,000 sq ft Royal Room would often have a packed house, while the 5,000 sq ft Mink, would be so full on some nights that even patrons with table reservations had to wait up to an hour to gain entry.
