Shane Brennan’s dynamic blend of entrepreneurial spirit, ambition and acute knowledge of the nightlife and entertainment industry has propelled him to the top of some of San Diego’s most successful entertainment properties as a Partner with Enlightened Hospitality Group.

As a recognized and respected individual in the nightlife and entertainment industry, Brennan is committed to innovating and staying ahead and ahead of the curve in an industry that is constantly evolving. Brennan first made his mark on the nightlife industry in 2005, with the launch of Stingaree, arguably San Diego’s hottest nightclub to date, where he held the position of VIP Manager. Entrenched in the nightlife culture throughout the country and developing personal relationships with VIP clients and party-goers alike, Brennan truly cultivated his role as VIP Manager into an essential part of the operations of Stingaree. With his remarkable ability to conceptualize events and promotions, paired with his unique insight into patrons’ state of mind, Shane Brennan was named Managing Partner in late 2009.

With the opening of EHGRP’s two wildly successful restaurants, Searsucker in 2010 and BURLAP in 2011, Brennan parleyed his experience and success at Stingaree into a platform by which to play an expanded role within the company as the Director of Guest Relations.

Continuing to develop turnkey relationships with key clientele and working directly with in-house operations teams to ensure all guests enjoy standout experiences, he has expanded his role within Enlightened Hospitality Group to an integral position, driving the bottom line of all properties. Essentially becoming the face of EHGRP, Brennan combines his savvy business knowledge with his sincere connectedness and personal relationships to implement the excellent guest experiences for which Stingaree, Searsucker, BURLAP, and Herringbone are famous.
