Leading international hospitality group, sbe and acclaimed Nammos Mykonos, have announced plans for an upcoming partnership at the iconic Delano South Beach. This will also mark the first international project for Nammos. The collaboration, which will come to fruition in late 2019, will fuse the signature experiences of the two globally recognized brands at the popular Miami Beach hotel. Both companies will work hand-in-hand to create exclusive dining and beach club concepts unlike anything in the continental US.
Known for disrupting the hospitality industry by creating a new category of daytime entertainment, Nammos is the quintessential partner for sbe with the brand’s growing day club sector. Much like sbe, Nammos has remained committed to building and maintaining an unrivaled guest experience that has gained them a loyal global following over the last fifteen years. In addition, Nammos will spotlight its esteemed culinary program, serving as a new focal point at Delano. It is this combination of unique elements that lends to the growth of a cult-like following and returning guests.
“sbe is always looking to bring unique and exclusive experiences to all of our properties,” said Sam Nazarian, founder and CEO of sbe. “The synergy between Nammos Mykonos and sbe is unmistakable, and the collaboration of these two iconic brands will bring the Delano experience to the next level. I am honored that the President of Nammos Mykonos, Tzannis Frantzeskos, has selected sbe as their first partner for a location outside of Europe and we are looking forward to breaking boundaries and working together to build this incredible destination.”
“Working with lifestyle giant Sam Nazarian and sbe for our first international project was a no brainer. Nammos and sbe both bring our own very eclectic ingredients to this venture and we can’t wait to show Miami what we create together!” said Tzannis Frantzeskos and Hesham Ibrahim of Nammos Mykonos.
With its soaring lobby and subtle seductions, Delano is the hotel that helped to shape South Beach’s history as a sought-after destination. Designed by Philippe Starck, Delano South Beach is a luxury boutique hotel that balances eclectic details with grand public spaces that are playful, elegant, quietly theatrical and filled with all-night energy – proof that the new rules of chic are simplicity with a crisp, clean and modern sense of ease. The property has remained a longstanding Miami hotspot attracting the likes of Madonna, Beyonce + JayZ, the Kardashians and Jennifer Lopez. The Nammos partnership will be the first of many property wide enhancements.
In 2003, Nammos was created in an effort to amalgamate all the charisma and appeal of the fascinating beach of Psarou in a venue that would eventually redefine opulent beach life. A restaurant that serves sophisticated dishes; a beach bar where the parties seem to emerge from the waves; an establishment that never seizes to improve, introducing its devotees to new services and exquisite facilities year after year. Since opening its doors, Nammos has become an international hotspot for the who’s who, attracting a variety of notable regulars including Leonardo DiCaprio, Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Sam Smith, Tom Hanks and Mariah Carey.
