Additionally, Birnbaum has an extremely exclusive, invitation only, lifestyle management company called Four Hundred and a privately owned mansion for high-end, celebrity-studded events called The Estate. EMM Group’s venue Catch (and its glamorous lounge Catch Roof located upstairs) has been the talk of the town since opening last year. The posh restaurant and lounge just won Diner’s Choice Awards for Best Hot Spot and Best Seafood Restaurant and even made it on Vanity Fair’s list for Best Places to Party this Summer. EMM Group’s first venue, Tenjune, is still unarguably the city’s best place to dance after 6 flourishing years. Rihanna, Kanye West, Fergie, Sean Patterson, Chris Brown and many other celebrities have been known to frequent EMM Group venues.
