Miami Marlin’s All-Star Giancarlo Stanton Joined Ocean Drive Magazine to Celebrate His April Cover at 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach

Ocean Drive magazine Publisher Courtland Lantaff and Editor-in-Chief Jared Shapiro toasted the April issue alongside its cover star Giancarlo Stanton, one of the most talked about athletes in sports. The VIP only event, which took place at Miami’s newest luxury hotel and residences, 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach, included guests such as NY/Miami Legendary Real Estate Mogul Richard LeFrak, BRGuest CEO James Gersten, Lauren Taschen, Horatio Silva, Art Dealer Ashley Turchin, Fortune International’s Andrea Greenberg and Andres Asion, Nick D’Annunzio, Morgan’s Hotel Group’s JP Oliver, Alfredo Gonzalez and Mariacelia Blandon, Leslie Wolfson, Len Dugow, Lisa and Adam Koffler and Selen Arditi who toasted with specialty cocktails by Casa Noble Tequila, alongside the Miami Marlins’ favorite. The crowd of tastemakers also enjoyed beer from Crown Imports and marveled over Invicta fine timepieces.

Inside the current issue of Ocean Drive magazine, Giancarlo revealed his thoughts on his move to Miami. “There’s always something to do here…If you’re not going to be on the beach, hanging, there’s some great places to eat, a downtown area, a beautiful art district. The whole vacation vibe is the best part about it. Everyone is really friendly and having a good time. I love living in Miami more than LA. It’s the perfect place to be.” He also shared why he is committing 13 years to the Miami Marlins. “There’s a lot of negativity that people will want to instinctively react to when they hear my team name, but that’s why I committed here-to change that and bring a positive vibe to Miami and our franchise. Changing that wouldn’t mean leaving in three years. It’s a long process. It’s what we need.”
