Nearly 17 months after announcing its expansion into the southern tip of Baja, Hakkasan Group is giving us a glimpse at the daylife and dining destinations to come at the Vidanta resort in Los Cabos, Mexico.
The new offerings will debut in early 2018 as part of a $150 million pact between Hakkasan Group and Latin American resort developer Grupo Vidanta. The two companies first announced their partnership in April 2016, hoping to seize on Mexico’s surging international tourism market.
Among the most anticipated openings is the new Omnia Dayclub, Hakkasan’s first south of the border. The setup is familiar to Las Vegas clubgoers—a central pool with surrounding smaller pools, cabanas and VIP bungalows, however this Omnia is a beachfront venue overlooking the Sea of Cortez. So don’t be surprised when some celebrity DJ drops anchor offshore and strolls in for an afternoon behind the decks.
Two restaurants debuting alongside Omnia include the previously announced Herringbone, the first international location from chef Brian Malarkey, whose “Fish Meets Field” concept already has established outposts in Las Vegas, Hawaii and California.
The second restaurant, Casa Calavera, is positioned alongside Omnia and will feature a Mexican food and drink menu in a venue that acts as a “nod to the local culture” with interiors that feature “traditional Mexican calavera art and an authentic Dia de los Muertos theme at its core.”
Hakkasan and Grupo will also debut Shorebar at Vidanta Los Cabos, a poolside venue with a pavilion design and an Airstream trailer where guests can order food.
Now we’re just waiting on that direct flight from Las Vegas to San Jose del Cabo.
