Omnia’s first year was nothing short of monumental

It’s hard to believe Omnia has already been around for a year—it’s celebrating its first anniversary March 11 with a set from Calvin Harris. And yet in some ways, because it has established such a dominant presence in the Las Vegas landscape, it almost feels like Omnia has always been around.

The 75,000-square-foot megaclub created by Hakkasan Group at Caesars Palace made an incredible initial impact and never looked back. “We’re coming up to our millionth guest and our first anniversary, and we had such a tremendous first year,” says Sal Wise, the club’s director of marketing. “I think 2016 is where it cements itself in the long lineage of megaclubs that have stood the test of time in this city.”

Any Omnia guest has found some memorable moments. Wise has three favorites. His first time seeing the now-iconic chandelier in action was “mind-blowing.” During the grand opening, “P. Diddy jumps onstage and does a full performance, and it showed the way everything at Omnia is designed around the talent.” And third, he spent New Year’s Eve on the terrace with his fiancé, “looking back on everything that happened and how fast it went by.”

Omnia’s moving, morphing, breathtaking chandelier is certainly one of the most Instagrammed subjects on the Vegas Strip—and that’s saying something—but it hasn’t solely defined the club. “What separates it from other venues around the world is how every person’s experience was taken into account,” Wise says. “There is that wonderful production and 360-degree experience in the main room, but we really have three clubs [in one] with Heart and the terrace. It allows guests to discover what their night feels like.”
