Pazzo Uptown (“Pazzo”), Dallas’ premiere location touting an artful hybrid of American-Italian fare with a chic lounge experience, announced that Kent Washington of Superkind Group, has signed on to steer Pazzo in his role as the new Managing Partner.
Pazzo, which officially opened in mid-January of this year, is looking to Washington in order to channel the same finesse, flair, and energy he has shown in the past with his other ventures that included Rio Room, The Travis, Kinki Lounge, and the National Sports Lounge. A noted “celebrity wrangler,” Washington has orchestrated high-volume deals and events for the likes of A-listers such as Lily Ghalichi (Bravo TV’s Shahs of Sunset), Calvin Harris, French Montana, Nelly, 50 Cent, Post Malone, Carnage, and more – thus earning the young 32-year-old serial entrepreneur the moniker of national “Super Agent.”
Washington is a serial entrepreneur and nightlife impresario who has owned and operated numerous successful hospitality venues in Texas. Washington merged his passion for entrepreneurialism along with his expertise in operational management to perfectly package his Dallas-based firm, the Superkind Group, which specializes in celebrity-driven marketing campaigns, video production and event services. While conducting ventures under the Superkind umbrella, Washington recently added the Body District to his business count as a unique, full-service, state-of-the-art health club located in the bustling area of Addison, Texas.
“I’m excited to join this venture alongside the Pazzo Group,” said Washington. “We are going to turn an already compelling concept into an even more exciting destination. Dallas is a great city and Uptown is growing rapidly. We look forward to bringing something fresh and unique to the area.”
Italian for “crazy,” Pazzo experienced an explosive grand opening with its unique twists to classic American-Italian cuisine, custom-built lounge, and modern décor. But now – it’s time to regain momentum, and that’s where Washington’s expertise comes in.
“We’re happy to have Kent and his team join us in making Pazzo the talk of the town for years to come,” said Owner Luke Zeutzius. “From our made-from-scratch kitchen to our one-of-a-king cocktail lounge, Pazzo is unlike anything else in Dallas. We look forward to the great things that are to come from this partnership. Get ready Dallas!”
