JE Englebert Banned From His Own ‘Disco’ at Tavern on the Green


Gordon von Broock, the former owner of Hamptons club Tavern, tells us he's furious about John Engleberts claim that hes turning Tavern on the Greens garden into a Thursday-night disco. Von Broock backs up the story we heard from a Tavern on the Green rep, that he and his brother Erik are the ones in charge of the Thursday-night party, which he describes as an early thing that winds down by 11:30 p.m. Its not a bottle service type of environment, says von Broock. So why did JE send out one of his trademark mess releases? (Thats what were calling botched press releases just go with it.) Ive never met JE, and Ive been in this industry for a long time. Its a complete self-promotion thing that hes doing. He wanted to invite people down through someone we know, and we said sure we have other people doing the same thing. He took it to the next level and created this whole thing like its his thing. Okay, so Englebert isnt throwing the party, but will he at least be welcome there, along with his friends? Definitely not. Absolutely not, says von Broock. Hmmm might want to think twice about dropping JEs name at the door.
