One of the most prolific young members of an elite hospitality circle, Keith Menin can claim something few others can: taking a nursing home and turning it into a wildly successful hotel, Sanctuary South Beach—before age 25. From there, he took on the resurgence of the Mondrian South Beach and hasn’t stopped developing since, with his most recently opened project being the Gale South Beach. As an expert hotelier, Menin knows his way around their sleek, sophisticated shops, so he told us which ones deserve a dedicated visit.

Culture fix: The Shop at The Standard Spa, Miami Beach
“The Standard has a great collection of everything from art to clothes and accessories inspired by the beach, but I’ve always been drawn to its books featuring art, architecture, and design.” 40 Island Ave., Miami Beach, 305-673-1717

Cashmere: The Webster
“The Webster gives us the feel of a New York boutique in the heart of South Beach, and it offers the best styles and on-trend brands all in one location. It always has the best designers. I buy cashmere sweaters there—a well-made sweater is necessary for the few chilly days we have in Miami.” 1220 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-674-7899

Swimwear: W the Store at W South Beach
“I try to go to the Bahamas every six weeks, and the W is a great place to stop in and pick up a bathing suit (by Onia) or swimwear by L Space for my girlfriend, Evelyn.” 2201 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-938-3000

Exclusive designs: Ida and Harry at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach
“The Fontainebleau has created a place where you can stay, eat, play, and shop. Ida and Harry has great designer staples like John Varvatos to suit that environment.” 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-674-4781

Casual: Scoop NYC at the Shore Club
“I have to take a lot of international flights and always like to be comfortable. Scoop has a great selection of perfect hoodies.” 1901 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-532-5929

Gifts: Acqualina Resort & Spa
“Sometimes we like to escape the beach and go relax at the spa at Acqualina. On our way out, we pick up a few of its products for ourselves or to give them as gifts, like Espa’s candles for the house.” 17875 Collins Ave., Sunny Isles Beach, 305-918-8000
