Michael Greco

Co-Founder | President

 

Co-Founder and President, Michael Greco, thrived at the center of entertainment in Las Vegas for over a decade. From baseball to standup comedy, the New York native’s passion for entertainment drove him to create the ultimate guest experience in the entertainment capital of the world. 

His journey to Las Vegas began in 2004 as the first employee of the renowned Body English, a multi-million dollar nightclub at the Hard Rock Hotel in which Greco spearheaded the conceptualization, designand opening. From night to day, Greco is also responsible for changing the face of daytime entertainment in Las Vegas with the creation of Rehab, the Sunday pool party at the Hard Rock Hotel. 

In 2006, Greco moved to Pure Management Group as Vice President of Entertainment. His role was to oversee the entertainment venues of 10 properties which included nightclubs, bars, and restaurants. His success is noted with PURE Nightclub at Caesars Palace being voted as the #1 nightclub in the country for two years during his tenure by E! Entertainment. 

With a vast amount of celebrity connections, Greco joined Palms Casino Resort in 2009 to work directly with George Maloof in an effort to keep the brand on the cutting edge.  As the Vice President of Entertainment, his highlights include signing both Mariah Carey and Matt Goss to their first Las Vegas residencies. 

Greco returned to Pure Management Group’s offshoot in late 2010 as the Executive Vice President of Diversified Entertainment Group working with brands such as Sugar Factory, Cabo Wabo, Chateau Nightclub and Gallery Nightclub. In 2012, he became Managing Partner of Chateau Nightclub.

In 2013, Greco opened FIZZ Las Vegas, a high-end champagne lounge, inside Caesars Palace.  The winner of Hospitality Design Magazines Best Nightclub/Bar/Lounge design in the world, FIZZ is a collaboration with global entrepreneur David Furnish and his husband, Sir Elton John.

Greco left Sin City in early 2015 for Los Angeles and reunited with Brent Bolthouse, creator of the Bungalow at the Fairmont Hotel in Santa Monica.  With Greco serving as Direction of Operations, the Bungalow shattered records for revenue and EBITDA and opened a second location in Huntington Beach, where Greco is still a partner.

In August 2016, Greco left the Bungalow to serve as COO of Venice Restaurant Group in partnership with entrepreneur Mike Dobson.  For Greco, it is his ultimate hospitality destination and fulfills his childhood dream to live and work at the Beach.
