Salvatore Imposimato has transformed nightlife in New York, Miami and Los Angeles over the past 17 years of his career. Explaining that the 90's saw a cultural melding of club style and age mixing celebrity with the wannabe, Sal explains that the new era of nightlife is one of segregation and exclusion, generating a list of clubs where specific looks are the basis for entry or refusal at the velvet rope. As the gatekeeper for the nation's most exclusive nightclubs, Sal now serves as Regional Director of Nightlife and Promotions for all Morgans Hotel Group properties in New York City.
As we all know, our current economy is in a major slump, and job opportunities are at an extreme deficit. So how do we get out of it? We party our way to economic justice! On June 22nd, an organization called the Nightlife Preservation Community (NPC) is hosting a huge launching event over at M2 (formerly known as Mansion). The purpose of this reception is to raise awareness about the challenges that not only affect the nightlife industry, but also the restaurant and bar industry and the many individuals in small businesses that rely on the vibrant night time economy that NYC has to offer. Come meet the owners, operators, employees, entertainers and businesses who help in making NYC nightlife the most prosperous in the country. This event is sure to be a blast, hosted by Chloe Sevigny, and Natasha Lyonne, and including famous DJs such as Qtip, Marky Ramone, Junior Vasquez, Danny Krivit, to name a few. Our own Jon Gabel, and Joonbug Productions are helping organize such a launching along with Track Entertainment/ClubPlanet, by gathering lists of over 700,000 Manhattanites who are frequent nightclub attendees.
