Now occupying the space of former mega club Pure, the new mega club Omnia was created by the same people who did Hakkasan at MGM Grand. The 75,000-square-foot space underwent a $100-million renovation, which ditched the white, airy, 1990s vibe of Pure, replacing it with a dark, ultra-modern vibe, accented by the multi-million dollar, spaceship-looking chandelier above the middle of the dance floor. Why does a chandelier cost so much money? When it’s really a high-tech installation of eight concentric rings that slowly drop from the ceiling while projecting lights and lasers, and move and shift along with the music played by star DJs (like Afrojack and Calvin Harris). It’s breathtaking to watch, actually, and everyone will stop in their tracks when it comes to life. Get a better view of it from the second level, where you won’t be nearly as jam-packed as on the main floor. Omnia also inherited Pure’s prime terrace, which overlooks the Strip, and offers an exclusive VIP lounge, the Heart of Omnia. Everyone is clamoring to get in here, so dress to impress and employ some pre-game as needed. Patience will be key as you’re simmering in between the stanchions. It’s open Tuesday and Thursday through Saturday from 10pm until close.
