Keith Menin


Principal of Menin Hospitality, Keith Menin, is recognized as a leader in the new generation of hoteliers. Menin’s expanding portfolio of hotels, restaurants and nightlife destinations pioneers the modern-day preservation of historic properties providing travelers with new, distinctive experiences.

With roots in Florida’s hotel industry, Miami-born Keith began to learn the fundamentals of a hotelier in his teens tending the front desk of Shelborne South Beach then owned by his uncle and mentor, Russell Galbut.

Following graduation from Cornell University, Keith joined forces with his cousin, Jared Galbut to form Menin Hospitality, which quickly grew as they redeveloped Mondrian South Beach and Shelborne South Beach.

Menin Hospitality’s portfolio spans throughout South Florida and Chicago offering upscale lodging, lifestyle restaurants and nightlife venues including Gale South Beach, Bodega Taqueria y Tequila and Mondrian South Beach.

On a local level, the hospitality group will serve as co-host for the 2018 YoungArts Dance Residency Supper Club in Miami.
