Keith Menin

Co-Founder at Menin Hospitality

Co-Founder and Principal of Menin Hospitality, Keith Menin is recognized as a visionary and forward-thinking leader among a new generation of hospitality entrepreneurs. Keith’s rapidly expanding portfolio of acclaimed destinations includes the modern revitalization of historic properties, as well as the creation of innovative experiences for a new generation of discerning traveler.

With family roots deeply embedded in South Florida’s hotel industry since the 1920s, Keith, learned the fundamentals of the business at a young age. His uncle and mentor, Russell Galbut, took him under his wing and exposed him to the business at Crescent Heights, one of the nation’s largest developers and marketers of high-rise, multifamily housing and hotels.

After graduating from the prestigious hospitality school at Cornell University, Keith and his cousin Jared Galbut joined forces in Miami to form Menin Hospitality, which quickly grew into an eclectic portfolio of imaginative, in-the-know hotels, restaurants and nightlife venues – each with its own distinct concept and personality – spanning South Florida to Chicago. Menin Hospitality is now planning its future by expanding its scope into modern commercial and residential development with a vision to become the leading entrepreneur in the building and selling of rehabilitated and new luxury homes in the South Florida market.

Keith’s singular creative vision has been recognized in publications such as The Wall Street Journal, Men’s Journal and Haute Living. In addition to his work with Menin Hospitality, he is involved in the restoration, re-design and sales of multi-million-dollar homes throughout the Miami area. Keith resides on Miami Beach with his wife Evelyn and their twin baby girls.
