…and while you are there, say “Hello” to Chris Paciello.
His life in South Beach began when he moved down from Brooklyn in 1994 to open several successful nightclubs, including Bar Room and the legendary hotspot Liquid with partner Ingrid Casares. While reportedly dating the likes of Madonna, Niki Taylor and Sofia Verga, he was allegedly using violent tactics to protect his business interests and was accused of multiple no-nos from assaulting various patrons and associates to stealing a BMW. In 2000, accused of a string of old mob-related crimes, he plead guilty to participating in a 1992 robbery linked to the Bonanno crime family that ended in the murder of Long Island housewife Judith Shemtov.
But after earning a shortened sentence by cooperating with authorities against old associates, Chris reportedly turned down witness protection and eventually made his way back to Miami, where last fall he joined a Vegas-based nightlife firm moving into food and beverages operations at The Delano Hotel.
