Kenny Kadar is an adventure capitalist born and raised in the wilds of Los Angeles. Back when nightlife meant staying up late to play Super Mario Bros., Kenny scrapped on soccer fields and chugged Capri-Suns. In the 6th grade he started his first business: customized children’s books. He grew up a little and earned a business degree while warming bar stools at the University of Washington.
Kenny launched Night Tap, the nightlife expert, in June 2011. Night Tap gives nightlife enthusiasts, and the venues that serve them, an opportunity to connect. They provide members with deals, content and events to catapult their nightlife experience at a discount through a resonating lifestyle brand. Nightlife venues receive increased exposure and sales.
And if you’re wondering where you’ve seen Night Tap previously, Paris Hilton rocked the iconic I Heart Night Tap sunglasses in early June.
MO: You conceived the idea for Night Tap in September 2010 and then launched in June 2011. What were you doing in the time between conception and the launch? Where did your inspiration come from?
