South Beach’s hottest celebrity spot has taken dining and pool scenes to new heights, Gregg Karasik our all time friend heads up marketing like only someone with this background can.
The 140-room SLS features direct beach access, two large pools, two high-profile restaurants and two bars for a creative and sensual cocktail of sophistication and playfulness. The boutique hotel places a premium on style, luxury and service in an atmospheric fusion of Miami, Latin America, Asia and the Mediterranean. Built in 1939, the hotel’s rooftop design depicting a lantern reaching upward to the sky makes this gracefully aging beauty the tallest art deco building in South Beach. It’s the place to see and be seen in Miami because as quintessentially Miami as it is, there’s nothing else quite like it.
Perfectly placed for guests to explore Miami nightlife, SLS takes its coveted oceanfront place along Collins Avenue just minutes from the action.
Celebrity designers Philippe Starck and Lenny Kravitz designed rooms that are stylish and sexy enough to make Madame de Pompadour feel at home despite nods to modern creature comforts and technology in the form of high-speed Wi-Fi and MP3 connectivity.
At Katsuya, Master Sushi Chef Katsuya Uechi turns his culinary artistry to innovative sushi and robata dishes adapted for the American palate, with private dining available in the Dragon Lounge. Hyde Beach offers the ultimate in pool party writ large, with more than 8,000 square feet of pool, beach and indoor-outdoor space. The combination of Hyde Beach mixology and José Andrés’ locally inspired menu are served al fresco, poolside or in the hotel’s Mediterranean garden. Diners at the The Bazaar will appreciate the vibrant mix of Chef Andrés’ sophisticated Spanish cuisine and South Beach’s local Latin flavors.
Guests don’t need to take a taxi for transportation; they can hitch a ride in style with the hotel’s house car, a luxury BMW, that’s available for transport to destinations within a two-to-three-mile radius.
