Cleve Mash of Dirty Martini Brings a Taste of Country to Palm Beach County

Before Cleve Mash became one of Palm Beach County's nightclub and restaurant owners, he was just an 18-year-old boy manning the door at his favorite South Florida nightclub. Sure, he wasn't old enough to be a bouncer -- but no one else knew it. Back then, he imagined opening his own club in that very spot. And, after a lot of hard work and dedication, those dreams came true.

Mash began his career in the biz at the age of 26, opening the downtown West Palm Beach nightclub, the Monkeyclub, with investment money from his father.
