The nightlife scene in Las Vegas is always evolving, but it still came as a bit of a shock last year when the worldwide entertainment, dining, nightlife and hospitality company Hakkasan Group announced that it would be closing PURE nightclub inside Caesars Palace.
Once the place to see and be seen on the Las Vegas Strip, the former celebrity hot spot closed its doors to make way for a new nightclub at the resort: Omnia.
"PURE had an amazing nine-year run, and we felt that the Vegas Strip was ready for something new,” says Nick McCabe, president of Hakkasan Group. "This industry is constantly evolving, and as PURE set the standard in nightlife, we were ready to create something that would not only continue that legacy, but would change the way patrons saw nightlife entertainment yet again."

Construction began immediately on Omnia, which will not only take up the former PURE space when it opens, but also the former poker room dome at the resort, adding another 30,000 square feet for club-goers to explore.
Designed by the internationally renowned Rockwell Group, the 75,000-square-foot, multi-level venue will encompass a seductive ultra-lounge, a high-energy main room and mezzanine as well as a breathtaking rooftop garden, showcasing panoramic views of the Las Vegas Strip.
Filled with interactive features and luxurious finishes at every turn, Omnia will set the stage for patrons who enter the club to discover the unexpected.
“When creating Omnia, we were not looking to compare it to PURE or any other venue, but to create a timeless destination that will marry wow moments with unique, state-of-the-art technological elements and refined luxury that is intended to stun our guests,” McCabe says. “Omnia will be a destination unlike anything anyone has witnessed before.”

Designed to have multiple unique and captivating experiences throughout the club, Omnia will live up to its name (which means "all") by truly encompassing everything a patron is looking for in an unforgettable nightlife experience, says McCabe.
This includes the type of music being played, which will include everything from electronic music to open-format and live performances to please a wide range of audiences. Headliners scheduled to perform include such globally coveted DJs as Afrojack, Chuckie and Krewella.
“We have designed Omnia to be a transformative venue, and it will be able to keep up with guests’ ever-changing wants and likings as a partygoer,” McCabe says. “No detail has been left unconsidered through this creation, and we are certain that it will be a destination that will change the nightlife industry for many years to come.”
Omnia is scheduled to open at Caesars Palace on March 12, 2015, at 10 p.m., adjacent to Hakkasan Group's latest Las Vegas restaurant: Searsucker Las Vegas.
Serving a contemporary spin on American classic comfort food by celebrity chef Brian Malarkey, the 7,500-square-foot venue will open this spring and join the restaurant's existing outposts in Austin, Tex.; Del Mar, Calif.; and Searsucker's flagship location in San Diego's famed Gaslamp Quarter.
“We are constantly challenging ourselves to find new ways to impress our guests with all of our venues, and I am confident that Omnia will have some design elements that will undoubtedly be do-not-miss moments that are all married with the level of luxurious finishes that Hakkasan Group is known for,” McCabe concludes.
