12EXPO gray2— Spearmint Rhino’s John Gray —

John Gray took the adult nightclub industry by storm when he arrived in 1991, opening the first Spearmint Rhino Club in Upland, CA. Over the next dozen years he turned Spearmint Rhino into a full-fledged adult nightclub chain, introducing 24 new club openings over that period.
While opening 24 clubs in 12 years was certainly an accomplishment worthy of recognition, what truly separated Spearmint Rhino from other club chains was that half of those clubs were located overseas in England, Russia, and Australia, establishing John Gray and Spearmint Rhino as a true worldwide presence. Over the years, Spearmint Rhino clubs have taken home a number of ED’s Awards, including the Overall Gentlemen’s Club of the Year award for their Las Vegas location, which has a reputation as being one of the most popular adult nightclubs in the world.
John Gray has kept a low profile in the industry in recent years, but at EXPO 2012 he presented his unique views on where the industry has been over the past 20 years and where he sees it heading in the next 20.
