Omnia Nightclub Set To Transform The Las Vegas Nightlife Landscape
The once celeb-soaked Pure Nightclub re-opens after extensive renovations (and with new owners) as Omnia Nightclub – good luck getting in.
The buzz for Las Vegas’s showy new megaclub, Omnia Nightclub, has reached a fever pitch ahead of its upcoming splashy opening weekend at Caesars Palace. Not only will heartthrob DJ sensation Calvin Harris spin on the March 12 opening night, but the club has scored a golden ticket celebrity event: none other than wild child Justin Bieber’s 21st birthday bash on March 14. This paparazzi-laden debauchery will be nothing new to Las Vegas, and the swanky new nightclub is set to score worldwide recognition as the new “it” place to party.
But Omnia’s owners, global hospitality company Hakkasan Group, are used to the hype. Their other megaclub on the Strip, Hakkasan (where Calvin Harris is a popular face), is a hugely successful celebrity hot spot, having swiftly swooped in as one of the top-grossing nightclubs in its first few years on the Strip.
Harris is on tap as Omnia’s major headlining resident DJ, and joining him are more music wonders such as Krewella, Armin Van Buuren, NERVO, Chuckie and Afrojack. Top EDM talent spin in the main room, while other A-list acts such as Questlove, DJ Ruckus and Rev Run take over the lounge.
As Pure, the space earned world-wide fame, as A-list celebs used the club’s outdoor space to count down (with the Strip’s glitzy fireworks in the background) during Las Vegas’s infamous New Year’s Eve parties. Everyone from JLo to Britney Spears (who can forget the night she fainted on stage – or did she?) has hosted a party there. Lindsay Lohan reportedly hit the main stage with her court-ordered alcohol-monitoring ankle bracelet on, and Paris Hilton was a mainstay back in the day. With the Biebs kicking off opening weekend, it looks like the space will keep its A-list party mojo.
For a more chill atmosphere, “The Heart of Omnia,” the ultralounge portion of the club, is a quick bounce over from the main room and situated near the front entrance. Pure’s views were undeniably one of its biggest draws, and Omnia takes the prime Strip-facing patio to another level with a garden terrace vibe and nature-inspired landscape. Pre-opening VIP tours were absolutely breathtaking.
Omnia spans a whopping 75,000 square feet and was designed by the internationally renowned Rockwell Group. They worked round the clock to completely turn the space over into an entirely new experience from Pure, via an opulent, multi-million dollar makeover. The lavish space is divided into a main room with a mezzanine boasting a modern opera house look and feel, with VIP table banquettes set on elevated, tiered platforms overlooking the main room.
The Strip has really missed Pure, where hundreds of people always crowded around, vying to get in (or even just spot whatever celebrity was hosting that night). Omnia stands to fill its shoes, and then some.
For pre-party eats or hangover treats, Hakkasan Group’s trendy Searsucker restaurant, headed up by Chef Brian Malarkey, is set to open a location next door to the nightclub this spring. Expect hearty fare like Malarkey’s famed 38-ounce bone-in ribeye “tomahawk,” eggs Benedict with pork belly, and beer-braised short rib.
Like Hakkasan, Omnia’s got five-star food, sexy ultra-lounge, and party-hearty nightclub all in one tidy nightlife package. Why go anywhere else?
