Houston nightlife is about to get two major upgrades.
Houston-based SEKAI Hospitality has announced plans for two new sprawling clubs that will elevate Houston to “day and night life nirvana,” according to a press release.

The company’s first concept, WYLD CHLD, will be a boutique nightclub on 922 Washington Avenue. International designer Marc Dizon, who has worked on projects such as the famous Hakkasan Las Vegas, will design the project. On an area of 7,500 square meters, WYLD CHLD offers a main floor and a stage, an inner courtyard and a roof terrace that promise a luxurious experience in an intimate setting. It is scheduled to open in early autumn 2021.
The company also plans to open a “mega” club in Houston’s East End around the same time. SEKAI DAY AND NIGHT will take over a 26,000 square meter warehouse at 1505 Saint-Emanuel-Strasse. Key features include a 36-foot main bar, 27 VIP tables, and stadium-style seating; a 1,000-square-foot resort pool with 16 cabanas; 17 VIP couches and ten day beds. Egyptian company Studio Five will oversee the design, which will offer a “festival-like feel of sight and sound”.
“Houston has gained international awareness for its food, cultural offerings and parks, and we want to create the same excitement and appeal for its day and night life,” said Sal Wise, co-managing partner of SEKAI Hospitality.
The company will host a job fair for both companies, with positions ranging from runners and servers to managers and VIP hosts. The show will take place from August 16-18, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 212 Waugh Drive. Applications are also available online.
