Omnia Lead VIP Marketing Host Chris Trillo says he “came with the walls,” because he was working at the Caesars Palace megaclub before it was born. He helped wrap up the legendary run of Pure in this space before Hakkasan Group rebuilt it as Omnia.
“Pure was the original game-changer, so it was kind of surreal, understanding the history of what it was with the multiple rooms and different sounds and experiences for everyone, to be a part of Omnia now,” Trillo says. “Nobody comes into Omnia and says this is Pure 2.0. This is bigger than what came before, and being part of it is a great experience.”
This week marks the first anniversary of one of Omnia’s most beloved experiences, the Tuesday night Wild at Heart industry party. As a born-and-raised Vegas native whose father was once F&B director at the Sahara, Trillo—who cut his teeth in hospitality at the locals’ favorite Italian eatery Nora’s as a teenager—feels a special connection to the most local night of the week at Omnia.
“Tuesday was also industry night at Pure. Everybody knew Pure Tuesdays,” he says. “It’s really neat to look across and recognize so many faces from different restaurants, nightclubs and hotels in Heart on Tuesdays. And the anniversary is really exciting because we’re having all these people out that support us every week, the locals who know if you’re going out on a Tuesday night, you’re going to Omnia. Our Tuesdays in Heart get sold out faster than the big room. It doesn’t matter how big the DJ is over there, it’s always jumping in here.” Wild at Heart One-Year Anniversary with DJ Five and Eric DLux at Heart of Omnia at Caesars Palace, May 10.
