Hakkasan Group will open two new restaurants and a nightclub in Indonesia, and introduce its Michelin-starred Yauatcha brand to the United States, in 2016.
The expansion into Indonesia will involve three brands, Hakkasan, Sake no Hana and OMNIA, with all outlets due to open in the new Alila SCBD Hotel, H2 2016. The venues are being delivered in partnership with PT Kharisma Jawara Abadi and Alila Hotels and Resorts.
Interior work for Omnia Nightclub will be handled by Rockwell Group New York, Sake no Hana interiors will be managed by Studio Q, Bangkok, and Hakkasan will be designed by GBRH out of Paris.
In the US, venues will open in Yauatcha, in partnership with Simon Property Group, and Honolulu, at the International Market Place currently being developed by Taubman and Coastwood Capital Group in conjunction with Queen Emma Land Company.
These developments will follow recent openings in Shanghai, Mykonos, Los Angeles and London, which have expanded Hakkasan Group’s global footprint, and will be complemented by additional openings throughout 2016. The Group, which employs more than 5,000 people globally, has seen revenues rise by almost 600% since 2012.
Announcing the expansion plans, Nick McCabe, president of Hakkasan Group, said: “As Hakkasan Group’s first venture into South East Asia and Yauatcha’s into the US, these developments mark a milestone for the Group and speak to our wider business strategy of moving into high growth markets.
“There is significant potential for Hakkasan Group across the entire Pacific Rim and as a result, we are planning aggressive expansion within the region, which will be achieved via our existing portfolio of brands, as well as further diversification through strategic acquisitions and new brand launches.”
Founded in the UK, Hakkasan Group is headquartered in both London and Las Vegas with over 50 establishments across the US, Europe, Middle East, and Asia. Its stable of brands also includes the Hakkasan, HKK and Sake no Hana restaurants and nightclub / day club brand Omnia; which is part of the Group’s diversification into a full-suite hospitality company offering both day and nightlife premium services to guests
