On the way to Omnia: Our eager anticipation for Vegas’ newest club

We’ve been waiting so long. And now Caesars is teasing us even more by finally announcing the opening date for Omnia. We’re still a month away from the March 12th grand opening, but we’re already picking out what we’re going to say we’re going to wear – before inevitably changing our minds a dozen or so times before then.

So far, the good people at Hakkasan Group have thrown around a volley of words describing what we can expect from the Omnia experience: Immersive, transcendent, lavish, intricate, plush, opulent, exciting and even revolutionary. They may seem like bold claims, but if you’ve set foot inside anything Hakkasan Group has had their hands on, they’re probably apt descriptors. And the outdoor space is promising a “nature-inspired landscape.” We’re hoping that means Omnia will have a connection to the surrounding space of Las Vegas Boulevard and the desert atmosphere instead of being closed off and sterile the way some clubs can feel. Omnia has a prime location at Caesars Palace, with spectacular presence on the Strip. So to see them capitalize on that placement with an outdoor area worthy of the view will be well worth the wait.

But let’s keep it 100 for a second. The days when clubs were all about the décor and flow might have waned a bit under the weight of the DJs and their inventively spelled names. Thankfully, Omnia is well aware of all the aspects of nightclub awesomeness, and their announcement of DJ lineups is proof of their commitment to giving club goers what they want – especially when that giving means drawing in some of the biggest DJs in the industry.

Opening night will feature resident DJ and notable name Calvin Harris. And the rest of the roster throughout Omnia’s first year will include Afrojack, Armin Van Buuren, Chuckie, Martin Garrix, Oliver Heldens, Krewella, Nervo, Nicky Romero and Showtek. If you’re reading this post and you haven’t heard of at least half of those names, then you’re probably one of the people who goes to the club to drink and grind instead of paying attention to who’s at the deck. But that’s cool. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to learn from those who obsess about seeing Krewella as many times as possible. (Pssst. That might be certain members of the Vegas.com staff.)

With a lineup to rival anyone else on the Strip, a location that no one can deny and the seemingly unstoppable momentum of Hakkasan Group behind it, Omnia is about to throw open the doors and delete the .pdf of the rules – because who could read a rulebook in a dark club? We’ll all see more once the club opens, but for now we know one thing: Omnia is the club many people have been waiting for and the club which the next newcomer will have to try to beat.


I came from a little town in the Midwest. And believe me, I’m never going back. It’s probably nice if you love grass and snow; but I love the lights, the glamour, and the flocks of tourists seeking fun and fortune. Once the sun goes down, I’ll be the first one out hitting the clubs or just wandering the Strip for a little nighttime adventure. Passing through Bond on my way to Lily Bar, or taking a shortcut through Double Helix before landing at Parasol Up/Down, I’m the one you’ll randomly bump into – only sometimes literally – strolling through Sin City’s liquored veins – and loving every minute of it.
