10 Details You May Have Missed at Meow Wolf’s Omega Mart

In honor of 3 years of Omeg-cellence, we found 10 things you may have missed inside Meow Wolf's Omega Mart in Las Vegas.

It’s been three years of boop cards and 12-foot-long receipts left in baskets and the only thing we’re sure of is that, even now, you still have no idea what’s in-store for you! 

Omega Mart has a certain “Je ne sais nothing to see here” quality that’s hard to describe, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t still plenty to see…if you know where to look…which is everywhere. 

“You could go there everyday and still find something different! It’s absolutely genius!!!! It really is the best place to be!” - Missy S. 

You’re not the only one, Missy! That’s why, in honor of 3 years of Omeg-cellence, we perused the place and found 10 things you may have missed the first (or fourth) time around! 

L'Omega Man

L’Omega: one of the first things you see when you arrive and take in the gloriousness of Omega Mart. Boasting fan favorite flavors like Mashed Potato and New Car, it’s easy to get lost in the close-up details and miss the bigger picture. 

And what is the bigger picture? 

A photo of the L’Omega “soda” cases, each painted in hues of blue, pink and yellow. The cases feature flavors like Plain Plain and Colby Jazz. Over the stacked soda cases, a sign hangs that reads “Total Bargain Madness.” Other products like chip pillows and personalized bleach can be seen in the distance.

That’s for L’Omega to know and U’Omega to find out. 

No Sop For You

Where to begin with our Camel Sop display? We could go on and on about the pigeon-tested, pigeon-approved flavors, but if you just focused on the labels, then you’d be missing out. 

A photo of the Camel’s Sop, with cans in various colors like blue, red and yellow. Flavors include Implied Chicken, Fashioned Beef, Hint of Husks, Homestyle Pigeon, Barely Barly and Dream of Mushroom. Several cans are upside down

A nod to the hit franchise (we legally can’t say by name) hanging above. 

Cans in disarray. 

An exhausted camel triggered by the press of that one special sop. 

Our only request is that you please do not climb. 🤦

If These Walls Could Talk

You heard about the cooler portal on TikTok so you bought tickets to Omega Mart and then you pulled out your phone and you went right into the fridge and we haven’t seen you since. 

Well that’s cool (see: refrigerator joke), but that means you likely skipped out on just one of the hidden gems painted on the walls above those delightfully frosty drinkables. 

A photo of the wall of frosty drinkables. In the center, the door to the fridge is open and you can clearly walk through it but what’s on the other side remain unseen. To the left of the center fridge is another cooler that reads “Don’t forget the ZALG” and to the right is an actual cooler that holds beverages for purchase.

Did someone request soda penguins? Done. 

Soda volcano erupting into a soda sea filled with sod-olphins? Omega Mart truly has it all.

A photo of the food chain mural. In the center of the mural is “You” represented by the silhouette of a head. Sprouting from you are several animals like bugs, lemurs, penguins, as well as other less sensical items like a cheeseburger, a cursed amulet, and phytoplankton. Underneath the mural are several shelves of products!

Next time you’re in, look up! From the store to the bathrooms to the stairwells, these walls tell quite the story. 

Staff Only…? 

Okay, we know what we said. And we understand how confusing the messaging can be, so we’ll say it here once and for all:

A photo with the Janitor’s closet in the center. The closed bright red door has a yellow Omega symbol on it with the word “Janitor” underneath. To the left of the door, a pair of shoppers are looking at Omega Haus products. To the right of the image is the deli counter, with the Meats of the Worlds poster hanging on the wall.

The janitor’s closet is for janitors only. Omega Mart defines “janitor” as someone who has, is, or has considered cleaning in the past, present or future, regardless of age, gender or dimension.

So please, unless this applies to you, definitely stay OUT. 

Cosmic Coincidence?

Omega Mart is not our only exhibition on this plane, we’ve also got the first born in Santa Fe, a behemoth in Denver, and two more mysterious portals opening in Texas. Each exhibit has its own story, its own beautiful art, and each is meant to stand alone, but we’re artists who can’t help but lay easter eggs any chance we get.

If you’ve ever been to Convergence Station in Denver, you’ve likely seen the Cosmohedron that spans three floors. If you’ve ever been to Omega Mart, then you’ve likely missed our Cosmohedron. Don’t feel bad. Ours is only about 13 inches tall. 

A photo of miniature sculptures inside of the trophy case. To the far right of the image, there is a miniature version of the Cosmohedron. It’s surrounded by other miniatures that are hard to decipher.

Many Many Minis! 

"The amount of detail and time put in amazes me." – Michael S

Oh, Michael. You have no idea how much detail went into making an art experience look like a seemingly-simple grocery store while also weaving in a complex narrative component. 

For us, it’s about the details, but also the surprise and delight. We love to see the confused smile on your face when you open a fridge expecting to find another room—or even weirder, actual beverages—but instead you find miniature farmers harvesting Zalg, America’s Forgotten Vegetable! Your constant confusion is why we do this.

And what’s more confusing than miniature models hidden in the most mundane places? 

Next time you’re at Omega Mart, explore the secret worlds of itty bitty humans. 

Can’t wait? Take the virtual tiny tour today! But please, due return. 

A Team with Character

The Omega Mart team is always expanding! From deli artists who can cut more than just salami to Dramcorp scientists sneaking away to gain firsthand understanding of YOU and your shopping habits, we’re always looking for ways to improve the Omega Mart experience.

Two team members stand in the aisle way of Omega Mart. The employee on the left has their arms on their hips. They’re wearing a white lab coat and a light up tie. Their head is an oversized red rose. The employee to the right wears a similar label coat and tie, but their face is visible. They’re holding a clipboard and pen while staring directly at the camera.

Filed Under: Meow Wolf Newness

We’re always adding and upgrading, and one of our more recent additions is newly-added labels to our Dramcorp filing cabinet.

With ideas submitted by our own staff, they’re worth the read. Just…beware of spontaneously opening cabinets.

Mega Upgrades

What exactly happened here? 

While Omega Mart was sleeping, a group of artists assumed the roles of anti-Dramcorp insurrectionists and spent four nights terrorizing this nook with texture, slime, aging, graffiti and sculptural details, corrupting Omega Mart products and siphoning funds to fuel their revolution.

Naturally, Omega Mart takes full responsibility. Take a look at their sorriest apology yet.

A close up of Mega Art Zone, focused on the sign behind the carts which has a painting of Wake Up Spray and the Additive S sticker. The sign also reads “What does the “S” stand for?” The words “Superior Quality, Satisfying and safe” are crossed out in black marker. Next to that, someone has replaced those three “S” words with the words “Stop Stealing Source.

While maybe not something that even existed the last time you visited, the floor-to-ceiling covered walls tell Dramcorp’s biggest secrets, and even feature a few of Meow Wolf’s favorite inside jokes. 

 A closer up of the Mega Art Zone walls, with a focus on the spray painted words that read “Make Art Not War” with a neon peace sign next to it.

This project was all about the little details while giving local artists a chance to display and sell their work. 

Take a look at all the folks who contributed to Omega Mart’s biggest upgrade since its 2021 opening. 

Datamosh 

And finally, our best (and also worst) kept secret: Datamosh Bar. 

A wide photo of the empty Datamosh Bar. On the wall is a whale heart, true to size, with neon strings emerging from it. Overhead are hoops connected to pink and green strings that connect to one another.

Here you’ll find stylish bartenders and custom cocktails.

FAQ: Where can I buy one of those shirts? 

Fun Fact…You can’t! They’re custom-made by our very own Spencer Olsen and not available to the public. Yet…🤔

FAQ: Where can I find the bar? 

If we told you then we wouldn’t get to watch you open the bathroom door thinking you’d find a bar inside. 

But, before seeking out the bar, we always recommend you ask your doctor or pharmacist if Datamosh is right for you. 

An Old Fashioned Spray cocktail sits perfectly prepared on the table at the Datamosh bar. The glass, filled with blue liquid, is naturally slanted. There’s an orange rind and a cherry placed on top. Next to the glass is the Old Fashioned Spray bottle, filled with blue liquid. The bottle also reads “100 proof whiskey”

You may be thinking, “That’s it?! But what about_____?” 

This list is certainly not exhaustive. In a space this vast, you’re likely to miss things and so are we! So many details, both big and small, get overlooked, but that’s what makes Omega Mart worth the repeat visit(s). There’s always something new in-store. 

Next time you’re here, ask about the knock-knock jokes. Dial 664666 on the nearest telephone. If something waves, try waving back! 

Until then, we’ll see you around on the socials! Find us on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram

Have an Omega Day!
