Alexandra Holzer: New York Never Sleeps Because Noel Ashman Won't Let It! (PHOTOS)
Huffington Post - over 4 years
New York City Nightlife 30-plus years ago danced to a different beat. The progressive change of club hopping from one place to the next hasn't switched course. A fellow New Yorker that is an entrepreneur, film producer and nightclub owner, Noel Ashman, who has been reported by The New York Post as, "One of the five most important people in New York" knows a thing or two about where the party's at. A product of the '70s, Noel grew up living in Manhattan with the Prep school attendance as a must, and he began his independence and interest in promotion and nightlife development early on. "We would get flyers printed up, maybe 100, and pass them out for the keg party. Once we hosted a party and what seemed like tens of thousands of these preppy kids just showed up along the streets.

Tom Murro: Chris Noth and Other Notables Enjoy Some Hip-Hop at a NYC Birthday Bash
Huffington Post - over 4 years
On Thursday June 21, I convinced my wife Kelly to join me at Xvi Rooftop in NYC for a joint birthday party thrown for nightclub hot shot Noel Ashman, and 90210 actor Vincent Young. Once we arrived at the club, the voyage to the roof was trickier than expected as my wife and I were initially blocked by a large goon, I mean security, until Ashman sent his assistant Nicole down to pass off two golden tickets that lead us through a maze of dark black hallways, then up the elevator to our final destination, the rooftop. Making our way through the sea of people, we found Vince Young, a cool guy, not just because he was throwing it to Tori Spelling in the original 90210 series, but because he's always making himself available for various charity events. Vince has also kept himself busy with various acting projects, and recently scored a hilarious roll in the film Eagles on the Chicken Coop. Then a familiar face in the crowd, one we've all seen in like 100 TV movies and f ...

BEYOND a teak doorway on an unremarkable stretch of far West 17th Street, a hallway is faintly aglow.
