157 | Experiential, Boutique Hotel, Restaurant and Nightlife Brands with Jared Galbut


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.

A Miami native, Galbut discovered his passion for the hospitality industry as a teen, working for his uncle at Crescent Heights one of the nation’s largest developers of highrises, multifamily housing and hotels. 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.

Galbut serves as the President of the Miami Beach Tax Payers Association, is a Board of Directors Member for the Greater Miami Hospitality Association and is a Member of the Miami Beach Convention Center Advisory Board.

In This Episode, Jared Reveals:

  • The vision behind Menin Hospitality, and how the company evolved since it was formed back in 2005.
  • What their journey was like, from their first unconventional management contract, to their current collection of 15 unique hotel, restaurant and nightlife venues.
  • Some of the challenges they have faced along the way.
