Dave Neupert has many titles -- real estate developer, bar owner, CEO, CFO, & social media pioneer. But above all, he is a natural born host. Not just in a Door’s Always Open kind of way. Dave creates new environments and experiences from the ground up. His intuitive ability to find the next red-hot community, combined with building talented creative teams, are the backbone of his successful institutions, all as stylish as they are popular. Dave owns ten bars, three hotels and a recording studio complex spread out across Los Angeles, New Orleans, and Nayarit, Mexico.
Dave’s most recent passion project brings all of his experience together under one East Hollywood roof. Gold-Diggers is a rare compilation -- equal parts perfectly tuned bar, venue, boutique hotel, and recording studio. Described in the press as a “rock and roll palace” with “just the right amount of sleaze,” the updated landmark LA watering hole embraces its seedy glamour and storied past. Designed for musicians, fans, and travelers to cross paths, this unique destination is Dave’s most integrated and whole-hearted project to date. In April 2019, Gold-Diggers was nominated for three international hospitality design AHEAD awards. It subsequently went on to win Best Guest Rooms and Best Event Space in the Americas.
