Three visionaries with unique perspectives and expertise, owners Eric Milon, Roman Jones and Francis Milon create a tour de force of hospitality, design and ambiance. Together they have made an indelible mark on Miami Beach’s landscape, enjoying enduring success in an industry where longevity is rare.
A top model gracing the cover of GQ and the runways for Giorgio Armani, Paris-native Eric Milon moved to Miami in the early 1990’s. Lured by South Beach’s burgeoning modeling scene, Eric soon realized the need for a chic eatery to entertain the international photographers, fashionistas and gliteratti seeking South Beach’s idyllic Deco backdrop. In 1991, he opened The Strand restaurant to unprecedented enthusiasm, creating a buzz that Miami had not experienced in decades. The celebrity elite soon flocked to The Strand, and Eric was dubbed one of the original pioneers of The American Riviera’s rebirth.
Eric’s brother Francis Milon joined him in 1996, bringing the skills he honed working at Paris and New York’s top nightclubs. One of the fashion
world’s foremost photographers by trade, Francis’s business know-how, coupled with his eye for beauty created the ideal partnership. Their newest venture, The Living Room quickly became an icon, inspiring the numerous bars and nightclubs that now populate South Beach.
Shortly thereafter, The Milons joined forces with Roman Jones, a young entrepreneur who cut his teeth in the corporate hospitality market,
overseeing the expansion of the Taco Bell, Burger King and Domino’s Pizza brands. British-born and rock and roll bred, Roman completed the trifecta. Son of rocker Mick Jones, Roman used his business acumen to parlay this experience into a career as one of the leading nightclub operators in the country.
