Jamie Mulholland (born 31 May 1969) is the founder of Mulholland Leisure, a hospitality development company. Entertainment venues which he has created include CAIN at the Cove Atlantis in the Bahamas, GoldBar lounge in downtown New York City and The Surf Lodge in Montauk, New York. are well regarded in nightlife history.
Mulholland was born in South Africa, to parents Diane Wilson and Gordon Mulholland, a successful South African soap opera star. In 1994, Mulholland moved from the Caribbean island of Sint Maarten to New York where he began waiting tables at a local restaurants, later leaving to start a catering company. When his a childhood friend Brandon Kerzner came to Manhattan, Kerzner offered Mulholland a position as bartender at Lotus, a club in the meatpacking district. Mulholland's skills at the club earned him the attention of management at PM Lounge, who hired him to manage the bar and their VIP list. From his experience, Mulholland gathered personnel and financial backing to open up his first club.
In 2004, Mulholland, with partner Jayma Cardoso, set up a night club called CAIN in a taxi garage on Manhattan's west side, specializing in "bottle service". The venue received positive media coverage, so Mulholland arranged CAIN pop-up locations in Park City, Utah for the Sundance Film Festival, Miami Beach for the MTV Video Music Awards, and the Hamptons.
In 2007, Mulholland opened both the GoldBar in NYC’s Nolita and CAIN at The Cove Atlantis on Paradise Island in The Bahamas at the Atlantis Resort.
In 2008, Mulholland, with three other investors, opened The Surf Lodge, a 32-room hotel, night club and restaurant in Montauk, on the eastern end of Long Island. This venue later became the subject of a lawsuit between Edgemere Montauk (the partners' company) and King & Grove, the company hired to manage the lodge. The noise and crowds brought about by the popularity of the club venue have been the cause of complaints from community members and disagreements about parking and bylaw enforcement. In 2012 Mulholland and the club's other owners were taken to court, charged with fire and other municipal code violations.
In 2010, the original CAIN night club closed its doors.
In 2012, Mulholland purchased a converted 19th century bank building in New York and opened a night club called Five Nightclub
