Brent Bolthouse has been a mogul dictating the nightlife trends for the trendy in Los Angeles for nearly two decades. Those outside of the LA area might recognize him from appearances on MTV’s The Hills, but for those in the know, he was a collaborating force with SBE Entertainment Group and made his mark on venues like Hyde Lounge, Area, Foxtail, Katsuya, and Chef Michael Mina’s XIV Restaurant. In 2009, he parted ways with SBE and moved on to his next venture, the nightlife space Trousdale.
