Set on the gold coast of Miami’s Art Deco district, Delano Hotel was re-born when hotelier Ian Schrager purchased the run-down building and transformed Miami Beach forever. Jenjuice Hospitality founder, Jennie Yip, was transferred from New York City’s Royalton Hotel to Miami Beach in 1995, as the opening team to launch the food and beverage department of the newly anticipated boutique hotel by French designer Philippe Starck. 

With 148 food and beverage employees, Jennie Yip successfully launched, trained, and managed the seven outlets, including the two bars (Rose Bar & Beach Bar), a café (Eat-In Kitchen), a restaurant (Blue Door), Pool Dining, room service, catering, and the meeting and event spaces. Twenty-six years later, Delano Hotel continues to be the adult playground for seasonal travelers and maintains the original Art Deco design that began the boutique hotel movement.
