His Kressness

There's something about this conversation with Mike Viscuso, owner and mastermind behind The Kress in Hollywood, that's very Trump-like. He rattles off details about the four-story venue and throws in a few boastful facts---the best lighting and sound systems offered, the only rooftop bar in Hollywood, the largest collection of large-format Champagne bottles costing up to $60k. And he's here to stay: "I think once we open, a lot of poor operators are going to go by the wayside, not because of me, but because Hollywood is changing. I wanted to step up the nightlife industry and leave it up to the people to decide." Next up: Viscuso plans to open 12-story boutique hotel adjacent to The Kress in two years. [Metromix; previously]
