Success was never served on a silver platter for Mark Birnbaum who had to work very hard to make it big in the hospitality industry. His career started with the launch of a 22,000 sq feet mega club in Ithaca. Mark started his own entrepreneurial venture with Operative Inc which was credited for the launch of Lobby, a trendy nightspot. The Lobby’s success was phenomenal and it led to another big assignment, the AER Lounge, which went on to make history. It was named by Conde Nast traveler as one of the best nightspots around the world.
