Today we speak to Michael Satsky, co-owner of Provocateur, a nightclub in New York City.

I worked in hospitality and marketing for Morgan’s hotel group and Grand Hospitality. before opening my own restaurant, Smoked, in 2003. Then I merged with my current partner, Brian Gefter, who had an event management company, to open Stereo (NYC) in 2005, Lily Pond (East Hampton) in 2008 and Provocateur in 2009 (NYC). Brian and I also developed the off-site pop-up by partnering with Swedish House Mafia, to create the Provocateur experience within music festivals, film festivals, etc.

Late last year, we expanded Provocateur globally with the opening of Provocateur Dubai. Next up, we are opening a 10,000 square foot authentic live music venue in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan and developing boutique hotels.
