If there's one thing Houston has, it's a vibrant nightlife scene, and two new glamorous bars will join the roster.
Sekai Hospitality is set to open two new nightclubs in the Houston area this year. The group, which describes itself as a "luxury hospitality company that aims to deliver unrivaled guest experiences paired with exceptional service in a dynamic environment," will unveil Sekai Day and Night and Wyld Child. The two new clubs mark the first ventures for the new hospitality group and will offer an elevated nightlife experience, run by a team of industry veterans.
"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 daylife and nightlife offerings," said Sekai Hospitality co-managing partner Sal Wise said in a statement.
Wyld Child will fill 7,500-square-feet and consists of a rooftop terrace and a 1,300-square-foot patio. The new club will be designed by New York designer, Marc Dizon and promises "groundbreaking technology" according to a press release. Sekai Day and Night will reside in a massive 26,000 square-foot venue, that features a resort-style pool, cabanas, VIP sections, and day beds. Designed by Studio Five, Sekai Day and Night include both indoor and outdoor functionality, with a 36-foot long bar.
Both of the Sekai concepts will also have lighting and sound design from Audiotek.
"Houston is an incredibly sophisticated and worldly city, and engaging architects and designers that bring a global, forward-thinking aesthetic to our venues is key to the mission at Sekai Hospitality," Wise continues.
WYLD Child will occupy the space that was formerly Benjy's, at 5922 Washington Ave, and Sekai Day and Night will be located at the now-defunct Mercy Nightclub, at 1505 Saint Emanuel St.
Sekai Hospitality will host a job fair on August 6-8 from 10 am-4 pm at 1212 Waugh. For more information on Sekai Hospitality, visit their website here.
