In all of the Fashion Week frenzy, there is one name that has been popping up in our event coverage again and again. Nightlife impresario Nur Khan played host to some of the hautest parties for the fashion forward crowds invading New York over the past week.
Khan, who is running the show at Kenmare, along with Paul Sevigny, is also leading the charge for haute nightlife over at Rose Bar at Ian Schrager’s Gramercy Park Hotel. Knowing that Khan is one of the biggest names on the New York scene right now, we caught up with the mogul in our most recent issue of Haute Living New York. In “Kings of the Night” we bring readers a Q&A with the proud papa of Kemare and Rose Bar, where he tells us everything from how he first started in the industry (“In 1990, I converted an old movie theater with a balcony into a live music venue/nightclub in Connecticut, called The Marquee Theatre… It was a very special time in the music industry; all these fantastic bands were breaking, such as Nirvana, Radiohead, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, etc. These bands were making their first records and touring, so [we] would route them…up to my venue.”) to his dream nightclub project, (“A rock-‘n’-roll venue, with the capability to do live shows spontaneously, maybe with a dance element to it.”)
