In 1931, Giuseppe Cipriani and Harry Pickering opened Harry’s Bar near St. Marks Square in Venice, Italy. The waterfront establishment near the picturesque plaza became a sensation with Venetians, visitors, and celebrities. With the success of Harry’s Bar, Giuseppe opened the now world renown Hotel Cipriani in Venice.
The Cipriani’s were so successful that John D. Rockefeller brought them in to operate the famous Rainbow Room in NYC. In 2001, the Italian Ministry for Cultural Affairs declared the Harry’s Bar a national landmark. Today, Harry’s Bar is considered one of the finest restaurants in the world, having expanded into London, Hong Kong, New York City, and now, Miami.
Miami Beach’s version of the Cirpiani Tradition, however, will involve transforming the historic Saxony Hotel into a luxurious resort condo on the beach at 32nd street and Collins Avenue. The team heading the project includes New York based Patrinely Group, Giuseppe Cipriani (grandson of founder), internationally renown formula one star and entrepreneur Flavio Briatore, and the widely respected Ugo Colombo.
This project brings a little bit of Venetian Cipriani tradition, Rainbow Room class, and Ugo Colombo luxury to
Miami Beach the American Riviera. The development team, led by Ugo, is sound, the building historic, the location world class, and the lifestyle concept singular.
