BUENAVISTA INVESTMENT GROUP is the brainchild of Antonio Turbay, a nightlife guru and trend-setting visionary in the world of luxury-class nightclubs based in Miami, Florida. Originally born in Bogotá, Colombia, the self-made entrepreneur began developing what would become an international business at a young age, Fascinated by the lights, the mirror balls, and the vibe of classic nightclubs in his native city during the late 1980s and early 1990s, Turbay made it his life’s mission to open the best clubs for the most exclusive clientele.
After a brief stint in London learning about international nightlife, Turbay returned to Bogotá to develop Colombia’s first ultra-luxury club, Gavanna, which catered exclusively to clientele who met two requirements – proper attire and proper contacts. His gamble to open a club unlike any other the country had seen before paid off and led to a series of openings every year for the next 14 years. He’s success would eventually take him to the United States to open Gavanna Miami, a groundbreaking Latin American nightlife experience that opened in Miami’s still-nascent Design District in 2010 and would become the stepping stone to the development of many of today’s most successful and iconic Nightclubs and bars in South Florida such as La Victoria Social Club, Seven Lounge and Baronesh Dance Salon.
As a company, Buenavista Group believes that success is built not through a company and a group of employees, but by building a team, from the bar backs to the bouncers, that functions like a family, constantly striving to do their best.
