Sao Paolo Madness

Just days after Pink Elephant unveiled their Sao Paolo intentions, a Little Birdy was peeping on 10AK's slick new website and discovered something crazy! Not wanting to be  outdone by their rival to the north, it seems Scott and Richie are destined to head south to battle it out in Sao Paolo for the love and money of Brazil's jet set. Also on tap is the long rumored 1OAK Miami. Is 1OAK really making its first expansion in South America, or is this just a bit of one-upsmanship to tweak the Pink Team? And if these plans are real, then are they for real? Do these NY operators with a limited global presence, excluding the one off parties at film festivals etc., think that the Brazilian youth are going to be swayed by a short lived NYC brand? Or is this just a licensing deal, enabling their investors to get a bit more cash back? If the latter is true, the owners must hope that these locations don't diminish their brand name, which isn't that strong to begin with.

DBTH- Always critical of every place that's worthwhile in NYC. Can we please, just please get a list of nightclubs that you recommend, and that are worthwhile? I just dont know where to go with all of your criticism!

So does that mean they'll change the name to 3oak, as its no longer 1 of a kind?

1oak Miami will kill, there is no question about that whatsoever.

I'm not too sure about a 1oak Sao Paolo though, I just don't really see it. Pink in Sao Paolo, yes. 1oak in Sao Paolo, not so much.

What do you mean 1oak miami will kill it. NO ONE in miami likes richie akiva, good luck to him even trying to get permits for a venue. Miami is a small small city and everyone knows everyone, the local parties are the best parties, and richie akiva isnt going to get a locals crowd. And im pretty sure last i saw richie akiva in miami he was getting thrown out of mansion by roman jones. Im also pretty sure he got punched in the face by roman at the delano! what a douche
