Everything you need to know about the luxurious and uber trendy Miami Beach EDITION (2901 Collins Ave, Miami Beach).
Hotelier Ian Schrager’s latest undertaking, a renovation of the landmark 1955 Seville Hotel by architect Melvin Grossman, embraces the city’s changing cultural landscape with a focus on breakthrough art, multidimensional nightlife and haute cuisine. The Forum further breaks from the hotel convention, reimagining the traditional meeting space, hosting year-round gallery openings and installations among other offerings, while the lobby’s white marble floors and polished, white pearl Venetian plaster walls serve as a nod to the original property’s mid-century influence and “Miami Modern” architecture.
Staying at the Miami Beach EDITION
If the glamorous, white-marble-decked lobby didn't tip you off, this place is fancy. Many rooms offer ocean views, some provide kitchens and all boast top-of-the-line amenities. Service is impeccable and includes nightly turndown service.
The hotel has two separate pools, but we’re fans of the landmark Sundial Pool, part of the original property. The towering, Art Deco diving board from the 1950s has also been preserved and is now flanked by rows of loungers and the pool’s namesake bar. Only those who to stay at the Miami Beach EDITION are lucky enough to gain access to the pool and its amenities, as well as entry to various events.
Eat and play
Luring locals and travelers is the glamorous Matador Room, serving Michelin-star-chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s modern interpretation of traditional Latin fare. The extensive menu features small and large plates packed with plenty of local flavors and Florida-sourced ingredients. Take the Cuban homestyle arroz con pollo with crackling skin and lemon zest, or the chipotle chicken tacos, both down-home dishes done up to five-star standards.
For more laid-back dining, there's Market at EDITION. The cafe-style restaurant is big, bright and airy—unlike its chic, dimly lit Art Deco counterpart. Fare here is casual and perfect for a leisurely lunch (the kale salad is one of the best in the city) or a family dinner over pizzas, pastas and other shareable plates.
Nightlife comes in the form of a sexy entertainment hub Basement, an adult playground evocative of Schrager’s Studio 54 where bowling, ice-skating and arcade games and dance parties come together under one (low-slung) roof. Looking for a quiet—albeit striking—place to grab a cocktail? Settle into the Art Deco bar booths at Matador Bar, just near the entrance of Matador Room. Sip on Spanish-themed libations and imaginative (and pricey) cocktails.
