Multifaceted entrepreneur Yanis Gabon, 32, has become locally known for being an influential

figure in the social New York City nightlife scene. After leaving Europe and moving to the states

for college, he has since developed a name for himself amongst many important figures in the

entertainment industry.

Yanis began working in nighlife over six years ago with Is luxury concierge company named

Premier Class. The company’s services aimed to provide a seamless VIP experience in NYC by

offering private tours, RSVPs to exclusive events, higher-end travel amenities, and more.

During his time as a private concierge of the company, Yanis built up a list of both domestic

and international clientele, which included several A-list celebrities and athletes. Within that list,

you can find names like hip-hop rapper Post Malone, Jack Harlow, soccer players, Layvin Kurzawa, Moise Kean, Neymar, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, UFC fighter George St. Pierre, and actor

Michael Rainey Jr. Thanks to his time with Premiere Class, Yanis has built up a strong system of

networking connections.

So strong, in fact, that Yanis has since also made the move into e-commerce marketing on top

of his private concierge role. Specifically, into social media marketing. As of four years ago,

Yanis became a Social Media Coordinator after a handful of clients -¬ęgred him a role in

managing their business’s social media accounts. They trusted his exposure and accountability

in the industry as someone who could potentially bring in important clientele for a new business.

And that, he did.

Yanis is currently managing socials for two businesses in the city. The first, which he started

working for over two years ago, is Uplift Tattoo Shop (@uplifttattoo)- a body art studio located in

SoHo. Since Yanis joined the marketing team, the shop’s Instagram has accumulated over

20.000 followers. The alternate business is a unique, French-inspired hair salon named

L’Appartement Hair Boudoir (@lappartement), located in Upper East Side Manhattan. Although

Yanis only began his journey with the salon six months ago, he’s already mustered up a hefty

4k in followers on the account, with continued steady growth.

“Well-rounded” doesn’t even begin to describe Yanis Gabon. So, what comes next after you’ve

done it all? Well, Gabon tells us he’d like to potentially open a business of his own in the future.

“I’d enjoy opening up a night lounge since I know that portion of the industry so well,” he told us.

But, there’s a major plot twist. “I’d want it to be in Europe,” he said. “Maybe Paris, maybe

somewhere else in France. Paris is my hometown, so it only feels right to take this next step

internationally, back to my roots.” The perfect goal for a full-circle American dream.

can’t wait to see what he conquers next.
