E11even Miami: "We Are Already Planning Clubs for New York City, Las Vegas, San Francisco"
In line with his lack of interest in DJ bookings, DeGori also doesn't consider E11even to be a direct competitor with Miami's megaclubs -- and in particular, its across-the-street neighbor, Space.
"The Club Space people are our friends," he insists. "My club will be an all-around entertainment experience while Space is simply a nightclub that's been very successful for many years. Everybody knows and loves Space. And I don't see us as rivals."
Ultimately, for DeGori, the priority is keeping E11even focused (by avoiding too many big-ticket DJs) and friendly (by not becoming embroiled in unnecessary competition with the megaclubs) and profitable, all of which will lead to longevity, not to mention those expansion plans.
"We're not here for a year or two or three. We are planning a 30-year run. And in fact, E11even Miami is only the first in a roll-out of six, seven, eight clubs around the nation. There are already clubs planned for New York City, Las Vegas, and San Francisco."
As for why he and his partners chose our city for the original E11even, DeGori says: "We see South Florida as the new Las Vegas. Only better, because there's the beach."
