Enhanced Capital Funds Two Of The District’s Premier Establishments

The Park and Love, owned by Marc Barnes, received financing from Enhanced Capital Partners back in July, 2009:

Enhanced Capital, a national private investment firm participating in the District’s CAPCO program, has provided $300,000 in financing to two of the District’s premier establishments. The Park, a trendy four story restaurant and lounge, and Love, a sophisticated nightclub which opened in 2001, are both owned by DC visionary and entrepreneur Marc Barnes.

Together the clubs employ over two hundred and fifty people in the District and the infusion of financing from Enhanced Capital will allow the clubs to prepare for additional growth, and in the case of The Park, further expand its establishment. Owner Marc Barnes is well known for creating exciting and dynamic full-service restaurants and clubs that cater to public and private groups ranging from the DNC to AOL and Monster.com. His clubs attract top entertainers like Jay Z, Beyonce, P Diddy and Smashmouth and appeal to a wide variety of local and out-of-town residents.

“We are pleased to support the expansion of DC-based businesses like Love and The Park,” said John Tyson, Director, Funding and Outreach for Enhanced Capital. “Our District-based fund is committed to backing local entrepreneurs and businesses in their efforts to expand the local economy.”
