Johnny Bacon—“Bacon. Like the food!”
Hometown: Manhattan Beach, CA
Profession: Owner, Joba Media
Profile: After frequenting Manhattan’s Bungalow 8, Beige, Marquee, Tao and Powder, Johnny kicked off his Vegas nightlife career as a VIP host before the then-21-year-old would work his way through Krave, Vivid, Ice, Piranha, Gipsy and Suede. With his new independent marketing-services company, Johnny focuses on helping businesses grow. He is working to bring text-networking platform tatango.com to the Las Vegas market and more culture to Vegas one project at a time.
Why I do what I do: “I really enjoy what I do. I love the people I work with and am truly blessed to be a part of such a great group of club kids in Vegas.”
Personal tidbit: “People think that they know me but really have no idea. I like challenging cell-phone manufacturers to meet my business needs. I love driving around town with customized soundtracks, playing music that I think makes up the soundtrack of my life. I secretly want to be a secret agent, actor, and sing in a rock band, and I do impressions and voice-overs.”
What I’m listening to: “Digital Love,” by Daft Punk
Latest accomplishment: “Finding my center, starting the search for the one deserving of this everlasting love, and the Sudoku puzzle of life.” Johnny is also planning a massive 21st-birthday party for his sister, LA actress and model Carrie Ann Bacon, at Rain on September 11.
Motto: “Call me!”
