Omnia is a nightclub that will open in Jakarta at the end of 2016/early 2017 inside the new Alila Hotel SCBD (in front of Pacific Place).

It is part of the group Hakkasan which already operates two Omnia nightclubs in Las Vegas and San Diego. The one in Las Vegas is one the largest and most luxurious nightclubs in the world. Located inside the Caesar's Palace Hotel, Calvin Harris is one of its resident DJs and it is where Justin Bieber celebrated his 21st birthday.

It is unlikely that Omnia Jakarta will attracts such VIPs, but it will certainly be a game-changer for the nightlife of the city. They will also open an Omnia day club in Bali in Alila Uluwatu.

The group Hakkasan is a bit mysterious and it has been making the headlines recently. Based in London but owned by members of Abu Dhabi's royal family, it has been accused of being financed by money from Malaysia's development fund 1MDB.

The group Alila is not new to the nightlife scene: It is presumably the owner of Illigals and Sparks, two famous venues in North Jakarta. Another person probably involved in Omnia is Tomy Winata who does not need any introduction. First, he is the owner of the land in SCBD. Second, he is connected to Hakkasan through the casino group MGM: Hakkasan is a shareholder of MGM Hospitality, which is a potential candidate to manage the Signature tower of Tomy Winata.

  1. It will be interesting to see how another franchise nightclub brand will go in SE Asia. Ministry of Sound tried opening clubs in Bangkok and Singapore in the mid-00's without success both closing soon after opening and then more recently both Pangaea and Avalon at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore failed in a couple of years. Most of the franchise nightclubs financial models work off an annual license fee and a percentage of gross sales which can be up to 8% which is a lot of money in a competitive market like in Jakarta. Good luck to Alila Hotels and Omnia.

    1. I see that the Alila SCBD where Omnia will be located will only open at the end of 2017... seems we will have to wait almost another year!

    1. Yes my thoughts to mon ami, since we both live here and are aware of the financial and political climate it seems unlikely even Mr T will bother with this. Interestingly rumours are that Omnia Bali is already for sale
