Earlier this year, global hospitality company, the Abu Dhabi based Hakkasan Group, bought a majority stake in James Brennan and Brian Malarkey's Enlightened Hospitality Group (Searsucker, Herringbone etc.), which included taking ownership of Stingaree nightclub in downtown San Diego. After much anticipation, Hakkasan Group has announced Omnia San Diego will open in the heart of the Gaslamp Quarter in Spring 2015, replacing Stingaree. The announcement of Omnia to San Diego comes shortly after Hakkasan announced the flagship location to take over Pure Nightclub in Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
Taking over Stingaree nightclub, Omnia will undergo a full venue remodel beginning Monday, November 3 after Stingaree’s closing party on November 2. Omnia will join the San Diego community shortly following the debut of the brand’s flagship nightclub at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
“We selected San Diego as the next location to expand our newest nightlife concept, Omnia, as it is such a vibrant and booming city, and we believe it will complement the existing offerings in the area,” said Neil Moffitt, CEO of Hakkasan Group. “The Omnia experience exudes opulence with its classic design while merging with state-of-the-art, modern technology, and we are confident that Omnia will enhance the appeal of the Gaslamp Quarter attracting locals, tourists and even opening the doors to more international guests.”
Stingaree was opened by James Brennan in 2005 and quickly became one of the hottest nightclub destinations in town. The closing of the nightclub will result in more than 100 people being laid off. The club will be closed for at least 6 months for construction, and the new venue will remain multi-level will indoor and outdoor space.
