The dynamic force behind KNR Hospitality backed by co-founders Nicola Siervo and Karim Masri, as well as Director of Nightlife Navin Chatani, have deemed themselves some of the city’s top kings of nightlife throughout the past 10+ years. They can be credited to shaping some of Miami’s greatest nightlife meccas, most famously known for the iconic WALL nightclub at the W Hotel South Beach. Recently, the crew has undergone some changes, amicably parting with co-founder Karim Masri, and welcoming a fresh face as the group’s newest partner: Marko Gojanovic.
The 36-year-old Croatian native is no newcomer to the nightlife scene; after working closely with KNR over the past few years, particularly at WALL and other W South Beach hotspots such as WET, Living Room and New York’s James Beard award-winning chef Andrew Carmellini’s restaurant, The Dutch, Gojanovic has earned his way into the powerful group’s managing team. Lead by co-founder and industry vet Nicola Siervo, the KNR team will continue to expand a portfolio of properties that includes some of the most acclaimed nightclubs and restaurants in Miami and beyond.
Expanding his role in the partnership is KNR’s Director of Nightlife Navin Chatani. Recently, it was announced that WALL Miami is adding an exciting new weekly programming event to its winter lineup, bringing in longtime friend and face close to the partnership, Rony Seikaly. The Haute 100-lister and Miami native has spent his post-NBA years making a name for himself in the music industry, known for his signature underground style of dance music. The party, dubbed “B**** don’t Kill My Vibe” maintains the goal of bringing back the concept of dance; in doing so, the once-a-month performance at WALL will transform the space by removing its signature black leather tufted couches and expose the full dance floor, leaving the space open for partygoers to dance the night away. The themed party launches Saturday, January 28th and is slated to return Saturday, February 25th and Sunday, March 19th. Stay posted for future updates.
