Given Omnia Nightclub’s game-changing extravagance and high-tech aesthetic, it’s no surprise the Caesars Palace megaclub is set on reinventing industry-favored Sunday night. The 75,000-square-foot venue debuted its new weekly series, Imagine, on May 31 with a lush Hidden Forest theme, transforming the luxe space into a world that evoked comparisons to The Garden of Earthly Delights. Complete with ethereal white-winged dancers, tutu-clad table hostesses, giant faux flowers and green vines that twisted around every pillar, Omnia’s very own Garden of Eden transported clubgoers to a fantasy land. And that was just the beginning.
Omnia’s new venture will morph into a new world every Sunday for the next 13 weeks (we speculate that possible themes might include a masquerade-style party or a Roaring Twenties throwback ball), with the club’s resident DJs taking over the decks. This week’s edition featured headliner DJ Chuckie with Gregori Klosman spinning an opening set.
Curious clubbers are encouraged to dress in costume, but those who come sans-ensemble won’t party empty-handed—Omnia provided blinking fairy wings to the crowd and will continue to hand out themed accessories so everyone can partake in the “realm of intrigue.”
Unique to the Hidden Forest theme, Omnia celebrated the debut with feather-cloaked dancers and whimsical acrobats who spiraled down from the ceiling as the giant interactive chandelier moved swiftly above the dancefloor. But as Imagine takes root among the rest of the city’s industry-night programming, it’ll have to promote its themed element even more (themes are teased on social media, but hardly anyone came to the debut in costume). And that shouldn’t be hard to do. If the Fetish and Fantasy Halloween Ball and the Palms’ Midsummer Lingerie Carnival are any indication, Las Vegans love a good costume party—and with more dancers, theatrics and over-the-top garb, Imagine could easily become Vegas’ newest excuse to play dress up.
