Haute Secets: Mike Bisbee

Haute Secrets Chicago
Name: Mike Bisbee, Owner of LGN Group
The stats: Born in Park Ridge, IL, in Chicago his entire life.

Why he loves Chicago: The people.

Michael Bisbee has always been fascinated by the nightlife and culinary industries so it comes at surprise that as the owner of The LGN Group he is responsible for many of Chicago’s favorite celebrity hotspots. Throughout college and during the years immediately following his graduation, Bisbee learned the ropes of the nightlife/hospitality industry by making the rounds as host, kitchen staff, bus boy, bartender and manager at numerous locations in Chicago. In 2003, Bisbee ventured into his first partnership as co-owner of Belly’s Bar & Grill (Bisbee parted ways with Belly’s in 2005). It was in October of 2005 that Bisbee took his experience from the nightlife industry that resulted in the opening of RiNo Lounge followed by Manor Nightclub, Stay Lounge and The Cedar Hotel. With The LGN Group opening a second restaurant in Spring 2011, it is safe to say that this handsome entrepreneur is on a roll.
