Gerry Kelly, a longtime veteran of the South Beach nightlife scene, has resigned from his partnership in the State nightclub on Lincoln Road.
In an email, Kelly, writes that he is resigning:
"to develop `SHINE' a new entertainment concept within the Shelborne Hotel."
Kelly said he would be a partner with Shelborne co-owner Jon Cowan, the former music director of Groove Jet and former owner of Nerve, in the venture.
Kelly also writes:
"I will keep you all posted as renovations are completed and we announce our opening dates in November."
Gerry's cool. We wish him best of luck with his new venture.
