The Miami landmark that has been featured in album covers and videos by artists like Madonna and Jennifer Lopez - and is now home to Queen Miami Beach, a stunnning offering from the Mr. Hospitality team, who are also behind Baoli Miami and Marion. Interior designer Carlos Rodriguez of ModPlay Studio has reimagined the space initially built in 1945, keeping the architectural details but adding elements of “over-the-top 21st-century splendor.”
Through the gold door entrance to the ornate space, discover the main dining room with an LED-paneled dome ceiling that transforms throughout the night, a colorful Mondrian wall, a custom mosaic, terrazzo floors, a mid-century brass chandelier from J.T. Kalmar, and the members-only VIP Lounge. The lounge features Lobmeyr chandeliers - unveiled at the Metropolitan Opera House in 1966 - original Paris Theater crown molding finished in gold leaf, and a marble bar.
Chef Julien Jouhannaud (previously at Annabelle’s in London and Le Louis XV - Alain Ducasse à l'Hôtel de Paris) oversees a menu merging French techniques with Japanese ingredients, with plenty of American and Japanese wagyu, grass-fed beef, and various sushi options. A second-floor omakase looks out into the main dining room below serves a menu of chef-selected nigiri.
A place to see and be seen.
