Jason Binn’s Birthday at Bianca

Tuesday, January 17th, 2012

Bianca at Delano

Miami Beach, FL – Delano is always the perfect backdrop for an iconic event. There is no hotel in Miami that exudes South Beach quite the way the Delano does. From its classic deco architecture, to timeless sparse design, to the memories that one has of their most glamorous experience at this hotel, you just can’t help but  feel sexy the second you enter the lobby. Tonight you could feel the excitement as a new era began at a legendary hotel. Delano was reborn … but with all of the same classic South Beach characteristics and characters. Only Jason Binn could bring a crowd like this back together with long time friend Chris Paciello. Binn created the South Beach ethos having helped to brand the Delano fifteen years ago as an international hot spot. Tonight, as he celebrated his birthday previewing the hotels new restaurant Bianca (designed by Sam Robins), South Beach’s orginators came to celebrate a man and a property who put Miami on the map as an international jet set destination.

Happy Birthday Jason and welcome back Delano. Two innovative legends that have helped to defin a magical city.
