Hakkasan Group’s initial rollout of Sin City’s Omnia bar has only landed in Bali’s Bukit peninsula, conveniently alongside a initial Sake no Hana outward of London. And, even amid a welter of high-end day clubs that have non-stop around Uluwatu of late, Omnia stands out.
NYC’s Rockwell and Singapore’s WOHA worked side by side on a fantastic clifftop site. Sake no Hana sits staid atop a fantastic double staircase, enfolded in an ironwood lattice. Below, an superb bar space forms a transition between Japanese culinary pointing and a sun, cocktails, day beds and DJs of Omnia proper. Designed with Instagram in mind, a Cube bar mesmerises. Custom potion beads and mirrored steel emanate a chunk of pristine form that hovers, transcendent, above a Indian Ocean, capturing and transmuting Bali’s distinguished light.
Set amid sensuous immature wilderness, 100m above Uluwatu’s iconic swells, Omnia might be a group’s initial incursion into Indonesia, though it won’t be a last. A second site opens in Jakarta after this year with an Omnia nightclub, another Sake no Hana and a Hakkasan restaurant, while a hotel is underway in Uluwatu, too.
