A new boutique nightclub concept is coming to the Washington Corridor.

Houston-based luxury hospitality company Sekai Hospitality is eyeing a fall opening for Wyld Chld, which will be housed in the space formerly occupied by benjy’s/The Classic at 5922 Washington Ave., according to a July 29 news release.

Brooklyn, New York, designer Marc Dizon will bring the new nightclub’s aesthetic to life, with design for approximately 7,500 square feet of interior space, split between the main floor and stage plus a 1,300-square-foot patio and 1,000-square-foot rooftop terrace. The club will have A-list entertainment, groundbreaking technology and curated offerings available upon its opening, according to the release.

“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,” Sekai Hospitality Co-Managing Partner Sal Wise said in the news release. “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.”

The new nightclub will join another nightclub concept planned by Sekai Hospitality on Saint Emanuel Street, Sekai Day and Night, which is also eyeing a fall opening.


To fill positions for the two new concepts, Sekai Hospitality will host a job fair Aug. 16-18 from 10 a.m.-4 pm daily at 1212 Waugh Drive. Potential candidates can apply through Sekai’s website.
