Jared Galbut serves as Managing Principal of Menin Hospitality, the Miami-based company known for its experiential, boutique hotel, restaurant and nightlife brands, including Mondrian South Beach, Bodega Taqueria y Tequila and The Gale Hotel.

After gaining a deep understanding of the industry, Galbut acquired the Raffaello Chicago and relocated to Illinois to develop the hotel.
While maintaining success of this new venture – a hotel that is still part of Menin Hospitality’s portfolio – Galbut sought out further opportunities to take him home to Miami Beach and founded Menin Hospitality with another emerging hotelier, his cousin Keith Menin.
