Sekai Hospitality is looking to raise Houston's nightclub game.
If you haven’t heard of Sekai Hospitality, the Houston-based restaurant and nightclub group, read on — then consider yourself in the know. Poised to open two new vibrant nightclubs in Houston in the coming weeks, this ambitious group is attempting to take on the glittering club world with Sekai Night and Day set to debut in EaDo later this month, followed by Wyld Chld on the Washington Avenue Corridor in November.
“Houston has gained international awareness for its food, cultural offerings and parks, and we want to create that same excitement and destination appeal for its day life and nightlife offerings,” Sekai Hospitality co-managing partner Sal Wise says.
Sekai is intent on creating a one-of-a-kind luxury service and ambiance experience. This November slipping into the spot at 5922 Washington Avenue that Benjy Levit’s restaurant called The Classic once occupied will be Wyld Chld. It is conjured up by Brooklyn-based designer Marc Dizon, whose resume boasts two projects in Rome with architectural luminary Richard Meier, plus stints working on the famous Hakkasan in Las Vegas and The Druid Garden Bangalore, India. We’re anxious to see what this international designer will do with this new boutique club comprising 7,500 square feet of interior space (divided between the stage and the main floor), as well as a 1,300 square foot patio and a 1,000 square foot rooftop terrace.
Meanwhile, across town in EaDo at 1505 Saint Emanuel Street, the Egypt-based firm Studio Five is working with Sekai to convert a 26,000 square foot warehouse into a mega club dubbed Sekai Night and Day. The opening date is set for next Friday, October 29 with guest, “We are Galantis” (comprised of musical artists Christian Karlsson and Linus Eklow) with an opening set by DJ Jeremy Nite. Look for a 36-foot main bar, 27 VIP tables, plus stadium-style seating, as well as a 1,000 square foot resort pool with 16 cabanas.
During the grand opening, deep-pocketed VIPS can book one of the 17 VIP couches and 10 daybeds for $1,500 and $500 apiece, respectively, or go all out for an upper dance VIP table for a whopping $4,500 for the evening.
“Just as design is pivotal in setting the benchmark for Sekai Hospitality, so is a dedication to creating an unrivaled ambiance with cutting edge sound and lighting,” Sekai Hospitality co-managing partner Army Sadeghi says.
Bringing a complete sensory experience — with sound, video and lighting all key — Sekai is partnering with L-Acoustics on the sound system and Audiotek, a specialist supplier, designer and installer, to create a rich acoustic sensation. Admission to the Sekai Night and Day opening party on October 29 is $30, October 30 is $20, and October 31 is $10 per person. For online tickets and information, go here.
