COMPANY

TRANSFORMING HOSPITALITY

Founded in 2006 by veteran nightclub owners Ed Kane and Joe Kane, along with marketing and entertainment expert Randy Greenstein, Big Night exists to create unique dining and nightlife experiences that transcend tradition and status quo.

Big Night Entertainment Group was founded in 2006 by veteran hospitality gurus and brothers Ed and Joe Kane alongside marketing and entertainment expert Randy Greenstein. Since its inception, the group has brought unparalleled dining and nightlife experiences to people across New England and beyond.

Big Night began its epic journey with The Estate in Boston, an award-winning nightclub that introduced next-level nightlife like never before to the city. Big Night went on to take the nightlife scene by storm with the debut of Shrine Nightclub at Foxwoods Resort Casino in 2008. Named Top 100 Clubs in The World, the club brings cutting-edge nightlife to guests with the most sought-after DJs and the most exclusive VIP services, setting the standard for clubs across the Northeast.

Big Night continued their expansion at Foxwoods with their first dining concept named Scorpion Bar in 2009. A gothic Mexican cantina and rock bar, Scorpion Bar quickly became a staple in the Connecticut dining and nightlife scene with innovative yet traditional Mexican dishes, prime DJ entertainment and an extensive beverage program featuring over 100 tequilas. With no signs of slowing down, Big Night debuted their third Foxwoods venue named High Rollers Luxury Lanes & Sports Lounge in fall of 2010. The retro chic Vegas-style bowling alley was voted the most beautiful bowling alley in the world and offers 20 bowling lanes with VIP lanes, three private rooms, two bars, 60 high-def TVs, professional billiards tables, and innovative cuisine.

Next, the group brought things back to Boston with the introduction of Red Lantern Restaurant & Lounge, their first Asian locale located in the heart of Back Bay. The restaurant went on to garner a number of awards for their fresh sushi, inventive entrées, hand-crafted cocktails, a wide selection of sake, and vibrant nightlife. The concept was so popular that they opened another Red Lantern location at Foxwoods. Expansion continued into the summer of 2012 with the introduction of another Asian locale named Empire Restaurant & Lounge to Boston’s Seaport District which quickly became a leading neighborhood dining destination. Shortly after in 2015, Big Night continued building their nightlife empire with the debut of GEM Nightclub located in Boston’s Downtown Crossing.

After nearly three years of setting the bar high in service, cuisine, and nightlife with their seven venues, the group made 2016 a banner year with two new venue openings including the introduction of Scorpion Bar to Foxboro’s Patriot’s Place and Guy Fieri’s Foxwoods Kitchen + Bar to Foxwoods Resort Casino. Located steps away from Gillette Stadium, Scorpion Bar Patriot Place quickly became one of the premier spots during games and introduced its award-winning margaritas, edgy vibe, and colorful dishes to the people of Foxboro. Two short months after Scorpion Bar’s opening, attention was shifted back to Foxwoods, where Big Night teamed up with Celebrity Chef Guy Fieri to open Guy Fieri’s Foxwoods Kitchen + Bar. Guy’s puts creative twists on classic American comfort food with bold dishes like Trash Can Nachos and his famous Bacon Mac-N-Cheese burger. Its rustic feel and almost familiar dishes give the casino venue an outstanding feel of comfort in the middle of the excitement of Foxwoods.

Continuing to build upon their success, the group introduced three new concepts in 2017 including Explorateur Café, Restaurant & Bar located inside downtown Boston’s historic Masonic Lodge. Explorateur not only made its mark on Boston with its approachable cuisine, but its extensive coffee, pastry, and cocktail programs created by the company’s best chefs and bartenders. Soon after, the Seaport District welcomed the group’s third Scorpion Bar location and a luxurious nightclub, The Grand. The winner of the 2018 Dance Club of the Year Award, The Grand is the first of its kind in Boston with VIP and bottle services, world renowned DJ’s, and a high-end locale for the ultimate night out in Boston.

2018 witnessed two more venue debuts from the Big Night team with the opening of CBS Sporting Club in partnership with CBS. The restaurant and sports bar located in the heart of Patriot Place showcases a variety of dishes and shareable plates utilizing fresh, bold ingredients with a modern twist on New England classics. The venue features unparalleled views of Gillette Stadium and a 25-foot LED TV to catch all of the game day action. Big Night then introduced the arcade bar VERSUS to Downtown Crossing in Boston, the first of its kind in the area. The retro-modern hangout features arcade classics, pop art murals by New England artist Dirty Dek and 1980’s-inspired design elements that has made a major splash.

The group continues to grow rapidly, partnering with household names like Encore Boston Harbor to debut unique spaces like Mystique Asian Restaurant & Lounge and Mémoire. Nightclub. Mystique features a wide selection of sushi, an extensive robata program, dishes that put a modern spin on traditional pan-Asian delicacies, as well as an inventive cocktail program. Mémoire is Encore Boston Harbor’s flagship nightlife destination that transcends convention at every turn with state-of-the-art video technology, intelligent lighting, a Funktion One sound system, and entertainment consisting of world-class DJs.

Most recently, the group introduced Big Night Live and Guy’s Tequila Cocina at The Hub on Causeway to the people of Boston. Big Night Live is a 40,000 square foot concert / music hall that boasts 24 VIP tables, a long oversized central island bar and unparalleled access to top musical artists.  Within the venue lives Guy’s Tequila Cocina, a concept in partnership with celebrity chef Guy Fieri that features innovative takes on Mexican and Latin street food and an innovative beverage program with a selection of over 100 tequilas.

Big Night has not only triumphantly introduced a variety of successful concepts to the New England area, but most recently has brought a new level of innovation to the industry with the launch of Big Mind Creative Group (BMCG). BMCG is an internal global creative consultancy that fuses intelligent design adaptive branding and advanced media to build radically inclusive creative communications systems for innovators across all industries. The group works both internally and externally offering services such as brand strategy, social & PR strategy, graphic design, video production, event branding, and more.

For seven years in a row, Big Night Entertainment Group has proudly been named one of the top 10 places to work by the Boston Globe, winning the #1 spot in 2016, the only hospitality company to do so. Success and growth are inevitable for the company in the upcoming years, with the consistent expansion of Big Night’s venue collective. The only question is – Are You Ready for a Big Night?

A charismatic Boston native and Harvard graduate, Ed Kane is the visionary leader behind New England’s preeminent hospitality company, Big Night. For over 30 years Kane has been pushing the envelope in Boston’s restaurant and nightlife scene, introducing award-winning venues and one-of-a-kind concepts. Kane’s eye for design has garnered countless industry awards and has made Big Night Entertainment Group synonymous with style. An influential Boston businessman in his own right, his leadership and expertise has earned him a spot in the Massachusetts Hospitality Hall of Fame.

Kane began his illustrious restaurant career in 1989 when he and his brother, Joe, bought and renovated a ’50s-style diner. Their transformation built what is now the popular Hingham Harbor restaurant, Stars. In 1992, the Kanes – along with partners Greg Acerra and Arthur DeCarli – purchased an old granary in Hingham and transformed it into an architectural wonder, Tosca. The new restaurant quickly became an iconic local eatery, receiving countless national design and Best of Boston awards. Following the success of Tosca, the team opened nearby Caffé Tosca, with lighter Italian fare, and then launched the fast-growing FireKing Baking Company.

Tosca and Caffé Tosca gave Kane and his partners a good taste of the Boston restaurant and hospitality scene, leading them to start Big Night Entertainment Group in 2006. In 2008, the group debuted Shrine Nightclub and Red Lantern in Connecticut’s Foxwoods Resort Casino. The sultry, dramatic restaurant and casino club debuted to rave reviews and national recognition. Shrine is like nothing New England has seen before, outfitted in the latest technology and introducing renowned acts to New England for the first time. Shrine earned a coveted spot in the top 35 on Nightclub and Bar’s prestigious “Top 100 Nightclubs in the Country”. Following the success for Shrine, Kane and the Big Night team introduced Scorpion Bar and High Rollers Luxury Lanes & Lounge to Foxwoods in 2009 and 2010, respectively. In 2016 the group continued their Foxwoods expansion and partnered with celebrity chef and television personality Guy Fieri to open Guy Fieri Foxwoods Kitchen + Bar.

Kane and Big Night moved their culinary success to Boston in 2011, opening three new restaurants within a year – Red Lantern, located in Back Bay, is a luxurious Pan-Asian hotspot, widely known for its sophisticated taste with both early and late-night dinners, the perfect completion to a night out on the town and Empire, the first Asian-fusion restaurant to hit Boston’s Seaport District, mixing Asia’s eclectic culinary tastes with Boston’s lively nightlife on a prime oceanfront location. In 2016 Kane and Big Night headed to Foxborough’s Patriot Place where they opened their second Scorpion Bar location right outside of Gillette Stadium.

2017 saw Big Night introduce the all-day French-Californian concept, Explorateur, just steps away from the iconic Boston Common. This one-of-a-kind dining experience transforms from a European café in the mornings to a luxurious dining room in the evenings, where sophisticated dishes embrace modern French cuisine with West Coast flair. Kane spearheaded Explorateur from concept to creation, utilizing his experience to design this multifaceted dining venue located within the historic Grand Masonic Lodge. In 2017, Kane and his team also unveiled the duo of The Scorpion Bar Boston and The Grand at Boston’s burgeoning Seaport District. Expanding from the immense success at Foxwoods Resort and Casino and Patriot Place, Scorpion Bar Boston exudes excitement with its signature inventive Mexican fare and libations. Located just upstairs from Scorpion Bar is Boston’s premier nightlife destination, The Grand, a $14 million Las Vegas-style nightclub featuring top of the line audio and vision technology in a space that is equally luxurious and exciting. Welcoming top talent from around the globe, including celebrity DJ’s like Steve Aoki, Marshmello and Tiësto, The Grand offers an unprecedented nightlife experience to Boston and is the first ever Boston venue to be named Dance Club of the Year by Nightclub & Bar.

Big Night debuted CBS Sporting Club in 2018 in collaboration with The Kraft Group and CBS. Located in the heart of Foxborough’s Patriot Place, this modern restaurant and sports bar quickly became the ultimate game day destination featuring fresh food and drink that put a modern twist on traditional New England classics and a space that boasts unparalleled views of Gillette Stadium. Later that year, Big Night also introduced the arcade bar VERSUS to Downtown Crossing in Boston. The space is packed with retro modern arcade games, iconic pop art murals by local New England artist Dirty Dek, televisions, 1980’s pop culture-inspired design elements and a state-of-the-art sound system.

In 2019 Kane and the BNEG team kept the momentum going with the debut of Mystique and Mémoire, flagship luxury dining and nightlife destinations located inside of the Encore Boston Harbor. Mystique features an innovative menu of carefully crafted robata and sushi selections, and an array of dishes that put a modern spin on traditional Pan-Asian cuisine. Mémoire is a marvel that transcends convention at every turn with entertainment from the world’s top DJs and state-of-the-art sound, lighting and video technology systems that make for the ultimate nightclub experience.

Most recently, the group debuted Big Night Live and Guy’s Tequila Cocina at the Hub on Causeway. A premier luxury music hall featuring over 40,000 square feet of live entertainment and nightlife space, Big Night Live brings world-class entertainment unlike anyone has seen before to the city of Boston.  Guests can enjoy fresh food and cocktails inspired by the bold flavors of Mexico at Guy’s Tequila Cocina, a concept located inside of Big Night Live created in partnership with Celebrity Chef / Restaurateur Guy Fieri.

For more than 30 years, Joe Kane has been a fixture in the nightlife business in and around Boston.  During this time Kane has built and strengthened close relationships with generations of club-goers and celebrities.  He has become one of the most recognized persons in the current nightlife scene in Boston and was recognized as a “Player” by Stuff magazine in 2008 and 2009 and was inducted to the Massachusetts Hospitality Hall of Fame in 2012 alongside business partner and brother Ed Kane.

In 1989, Kane and his brother Ed bought and renovated a ’50s-style diner. Their transformation built what is now the popular Hingham Harbor restaurant, Stars. In 1992, the Kanes – along with partners Greg Acerra and Arthur DeCarli – purchased an old granary in Hingham and transformed it into an architectural wonder, Tosca. The new restaurant quickly became an iconic local eatery, receiving countless national design and “Best of Boston” awards. Following the success of Tosca, the team opened nearby Caffé Tosca, with lighter Italian fare, and then launched the fast-growing FireKing Baking Company.

Kane spent several years as Managing Partner at Waterworks and Marina Bay Beach Club, before being recruited by the Lyons Group.  Simultaneously, he helped create Big Night as an umbrella company, which focuses on creating a unique nightlife experience by managing and marketing its key venues.

One of Kane’s biggest assets is his ability to organize and strengthen a venue’s operations, bringing it to peak efficiency and profitability.  In 2007, he played a pivotal role in the successful opening of Shrine Nightclub in Foxwoods Resort Casino.  Like nothing New England has ever seen, Shrine became an immediate success, winning a spot in the Top 100 Nightclubs in the country in 2009, placing 35th.  On the heels of Shrine’s success, Kane and his partners opened Scorpion Bar in 2009 and High Rollers Luxury Lanes & Lounge in 2010. In 2016 the group partnered with celebrity chef and television personality Guy Fieri to introduce Guy Fieri’s Foxwoods Kitchen + Bar.

Kane and Big Night moved their culinary success to Boston in 2011, opening two new restaurants within a year – Red Lantern, located in Back Bay, is a luxurious Pan-Asian hotspot, widely known for its sophisticated taste with both early and late-night dinners, the perfect completion to a night out on the town and Empire, the first Asian-fusion restaurant to hit Boston’s Waterfront, mixing Asia’s eclectic culinary tastes with Boston lively nightlight on a prime oceanfront location. In 2016 Kane and Big Night headed to Foxborough’s Patriot Place where they opened their second Scorpion Bar location right outside of Gillette Stadium.

In August 2017, Big Night and Kane debuted an unprecedented all-day dining venue adjacent to the Boston Common. Explorateur, which is French in approach with a modern Californian twist is complete with a European-style café, full-service restaurant, and expansive bar inside the historic Grand Masonic Lodge. Not long after the opening of Explorateur in the fall of 2017, Kane along with the entire Big Night conquered Seaport Square with the most recent opening of The Grand nightclub and Scorpion Bar Boston. Unlike anything Boston has ever seen before, The Grand fills a void in Boston’s nightlife scene and has made its mark as the premiere entertainment destination with by hosting the world’s hottest DJs. In 2019 the legendary nightclub was named Dance Club of the Year by Nightclub & Bar, making The Grand the first venue in Boston to ever hold the title. Located one floor below The Grand, Scorpion Bar Boston showcases creative Mexican fare in a venue that seamlessly transitions from a casual daytime dining spot to an energetic nightlife experience.

The momentum continued into 2018 when Big Night opened CBS Sporting Club in collaboration with The Kraft Group and CBS. Located in the heart of Foxborough’s Patriot Place, the restaurant and sports bar offers guests unparalleled views of the excitement at Gillette Stadium. In that same year, Big Night introduced Boston to VERSUS, a retro arcade bar in Downtown Crossing. The space boasts pop art murals by local New England artist Dirty Dek and retro-modern arcade games in a high-energy bar setting.

In 2019 Kane and the BNEG team were once again reinventing the city of Boston’s dining and nightlife scene with Mystique and Mémoire, flagship luxury dining and nightlife destinations located at Encore Boston Harbor. The group’s most recent venture includes Big Night Live, a premier luxury music hall featuring over 40,000 square feet of live entertainment and nightlife space, and Guy’s Tequila Cocina, a concept created with celebrity chef / restaurateur Guy Fieri.  The new restaurant concept provides guests with the ultimate drinking and dining destination located right inside Big Night Live. The space boasts a vibrant interior and a menu that brings the bold flavors of Mexico to the city of Boston.

Greenstein brings an innate knowledge of marketing, media, entertainment, and current trends to Big Night and is a driving force behind the company’s expansion and success in the nightlife space. An entertainment aficionado, Randy he has been involved in the industry in many different facets. Starting with radio at a young age, Greenstein began his career as an on-air personality and later became an account executive at the legendary Kiss 108 in Boston. It didn’t take him long to become a vital member of the team, and within a couple of short years he was among Clear Channel’s top sellers.

In 2007, Greenstein joined brothers Ed and Joe Kane to form Big Night. BNEG is a New England’s preeminent hospitality group, focused on creating an unforgettable nightlife and restaurant experience by providing beautiful venues, unique menus, first-class entertainment, and exceptional customer service.  Greenstein is very hands on running the venues, concentrating on the day to day operations, marketing, and entertainment for Big Night Entertainment Group’s growing portfolio of award-winning properties.

In May of 2008, Greenstein and Big Night opened Shrine Asian Kitchen Nightclub and Lounge at Foxwoods Resort Casino. Like nothing New England has ever seen, Shrine became an immediate success winning a spot in the Top 100 Nightclubs in the country, placing 35th. On the heels of Shrine’s success, Greenstein and his partners opened additional venues at Foxwoods including, The Scorpion Bar in 2009, and High Rollers Luxury Lanes & Sports Lounge in 2010.

Greenstein and Big Night then moved their focus to Boston, opening two new restaurants within a year. Red Lantern, located in Back Bay, is a luxurious Pan-Asian hot spot, widely known for its sophisticated taste with both early and late-night dinners, the perfect completion to a night out on the town and Empire, the first Asian-fusion restaurant to hit Boston’s Seaport Waterfront, mixing Asia’s eclectic culinary tastes with Boston’s exciting atmosphere on a prime oceanfront location.

After a few short years, Big Night opened five more restaurants in 2016 and 2017.  Following the tremendous success of Scorpion Bar Foxwoods, Big Night opened Scorpion Bar located at Patriot Place in Foxborough, Massachusetts and Guy Fieri’s Foxwoods Kitchen + Bar at Foxwoods Resort Casino in 2016. In 2017 Big Night debuted Explorateur, a first-of-its kind all day café, restaurant, and bar located on Boston Common in the iconic Masonic Lodge building. Greenstein and the Big Night team introduced their third Scorpion Bar location in Boston’s Seaport District and the The Grand, which has introduced a next-level nightclub experience in Boston, featuring a residency lineup that rivals the top clubs in Vegas and a lighting and sound system that is unprecedented in the U.S. In 2019 The Grand was named Dance Club of the Year by Nightclub + Bar, becoming the first nightclub in Boston to win the title.

Greenstein and Big Night welcomed two more venues in 2018. CBS Sporting Club opened in the heart of Foxborough’s Patriot Place in collaboration with The Kraft Group and CBS. The restaurant and sports bar takes hospitality to the next level with unparalleled views of Gillette Stadium and a menu that puts a modern spin on traditional New England food and drink. Tin the same year, the arcade bar VERSUS brought a new wave to Boston’s Downtown Crossing with retro-modern arcade games and iconic pop art murals from New England artist Dirty Dek. 

In 2019 Greenstein and the Big Night team took the city’s dining and nightlife scene by storm once again with the introduction of Mystique and Mémoire, flagship luxury dining and nightlife destinations at Encore Boston Harbor. Most recently, Greenstein and team debuted Big Night Live, a premier luxury music hall featuring over 40,000 square feet of live entertainment and nightlife space at the Hub on Causeway. With the debut of Big Night Live came Guy’s Tequila Cocina, the much-anticipated dining concept located inside of Big Night Live which was created in collaboration with Celebrity Chef / Restaurateur Guy Fieri. Guy’s Tequila Cocina brings bold, delicious flavors and a vibrant atmosphere inspired by the streets of Mexico to the people of Boston.
