David Grutman is Transforming the South Beach Firestone Into a Food and Beverage Complex


There seems to be no stopping David Grutman and his hospitality group, Groot Hospitality. It was announced that the club and restaurant mogul is going to debut three new food and beverage spots where the former Firestone on South Beach used to reside at 1569 Alton Road, along with a retail concept. The spaces will debut in fall of 2019 according to representatives, but no other details have been revealed.

This isn’t the first announced food and beverage plan for the space. Roughly two years ago, another big player in the South Florida hospitality world, Menin Hospitality, announced plans for an all-day diner in the space. Those plans have since fallen through.

And this unnamed spot is just the latest addition to the Groot Hospitality portfolio that includes OTL, Planta, Komodo, and the upcoming Swan and Bar Bevy with Pharrell Williams, along with nightclubs Story and LIV. Stay tuned for more developments.
