PAMM Corporate Cocktail: Q&A with David Grutman

David Grutman shares his thoughts on Miami culture and cuisine with Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) in advance of its upcoming annual Corporate Cocktail, which will be hosted at one of Grutman’s newest concepts: Bar Bevy, the sleek cocktail lounge located atop Swan.

Known as Miami’s “hospitality mogul,” Grutman is responsible for opening successful hotspots such as KomodoLIVSTORYPlanta, and of course,  Swan and Bar Bevy that he opened in partnership with Pharrell Williams. A huge supporter of Miami’s cultural institutions and an avid contemporary art collector, Grutman’s Design District lounge, above Swan, makes the perfect destination for PAMM’s Fifth Annual Corporate Cocktail.

What defines Miami cuisine?
As a melting pot of cultures, Miami showcases a global cuisine with so many options to satisfy all of the delicious cravings you could possibly have.

How do your roots and background influence your commitment to Miami?
I could live anywhere I wanted to, but I love Miami. Miami is so vibrant, and where else can you go out on the boat every day of the year? Miami has so much to offer and as more and more cultural institutions and big name brands open in our city, the area only gets better. As we look to grow, Miami will always be home.

How did you create the menu for the evening?
The menu for the night features a variety of our signature bites and favorite snacks that compliment Bar Bevy’s cocktails. Our food is beautiful and flavorful and we know that PAMM’s guests will love it here.

How does Bar Bevy’s relationship with PAMM stand out?
Bar Bevy is known for its beautiful design and awesome artwork on every wall. We have a number of contemporary art pieces featured around the lounge that highlight Groot Hospitality’s relationship to art. We can’t wait to host this event!

What is the importance of Bar Bevy supporting the PAMM Corporate Cocktail?
For me, it’s more than just Bar Bevy supporting PAMM, it’s the whole Groot Hospitality organization supporting these important institutions which are enhancing culture locally and driving tourism to Miami.
