Hakkasan Group expands global reach

 The international hospitality company with brands including Hakkasan, Yauatcha and Sake No Hana continues to grow

Next year will see Hakkasan Group make its first entry into South East Asia as it opens two new venues, the upscale Chinese restaurant Hakkasan and fine dining Japanese restaurant Sake No Hana, in Indonesia. It will also launch nightclub/day club brand Omnia in Jakarta, which the company says is part of a diversification strategy that will expand its range to day and nighttime offerings.

“As the first step into this region, Jakarta presents a fantastic opportunity due to its increasing importance as a luxury destination and the large amount of Indonesian tourism to Las Vegas, which has led so locals being familiar with some of the groups brands,” said Nick McCabe, president of Hakkasan Group.

The establishments will open in Alila SCBD Hotel, which is the latest development from Alila Hotels and Resorts, which is set to launch in the second part of 2016.

At the same time the group has decided to introduce its Michelin-starred dim sum brand Yauatcha to the US and will open in two locations – Houston and Honolulu. “These two destinations, with their diverse populations and tastes, are perfect homes for Yauatcha,” said McCabe. “We believe it can add a product and service offering to that market that doesn’t currently exist.”

In Houston Yautcha will open in partnership with Simon Property Group at the Houston Galleria while the Honolulu restaurant will open at the International Market.

These announcements come hot on the heels of recent openings in Shanghai, Mykonos, Los Angeles and London.

The Hakkasan Group was founded in the UK and has offices in London and Las Vegas. It now includes more than 50 establishments across the US, Europe, Middle East, and Asia and employs 5,000 people around the world.
