Hannah Bronfman has been a busy girl since AVENUE dubbed her “Girl of the Year” in January. Although Bronfman says she’s not at liberty to elaborate on details, the part-owner of Hotel Griffou is currently investing in a new restaurant and a nightclub as well. If that wasn’t impressive enough, the 23-year-old Bard graduate has music running through her veins: Bronfman is the daughter of the CEO of Warner Music Group, Edgar Bronfman, Jr., sister-in-law-to-be to singer M.I.A, and owns a record label (and an eco-friendly clothing line called Green Owl) with her brother, Benjamin. “I’m always spreading the love and keeping it in the family,” Bronfman, who has been dating musician Asher Roth for the past two years, says regarding her deejaying philosophy. But for Hannah, it’s also about “bringing a crowd as opposed to just spinning the best music.”
