Principle Owner of Big Night Entertainment Group
An entertainment aficionado, Randy Greenstein 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 Entertainment Group. 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 Entertainment Group 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 Entertainment Group then moved their focus to Boston, opening three 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; GEM, located at Downtown Crossing is a moderately-sized, yet luxurious, nightlife destination with a comfortable and intimate setting; 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. Most recently, Greenstein and the Big Night team introduced their third Scorpion Bar location in Boston’s Seaport District and 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.
Greenstein’s accolades include being recognized as one of Boston’s “Players” by Stuff Magazine and being named to the Boston Business Journal’s prestigious 40 Under 40 list.
Greenstein brings an innate knowledge of marketing, media, entertainment, and current trends to Big Night Entertainment Group, and is a driving force behind the company’s expansion and success in the nightlife space.
Greenstein and Big Night Entertainment Group do not intend on slowing down, with three more restaurant and nightlife concepts slated to debut in 2018 and 2019.
