Bob Djahanguiri


Like a baby boomer Justin Timberlake, Old Town Brasserie owner Bob Djahanguiri is on a quest to bring sexy back, or in his parlance, “romance.” In the ’80s and early ’90s, Djahanguiri—who opened hot spots like Toulouse and Yvette—was the grand master of the Chicago night circus, hosting visiting celebrities like Liza Minnelli and Harry Connick Jr. Once, Mikhail Baryshnikov and his posse danced on Djahanguiri’s pianos way past the 4 a.m. closing time.
