  • Dominating the local hotel market for much of the last decade, Miami's Delano Hotel recently embarked on an ambitious remodel that included many of the hotel's lounge and restaurant spaces. Teaming up with bad-boy rocker Lenny Kravitz, the hotel officially opened its Florida Room in early 2008 just off the infamous lobby area and pool deck. After a rocky and quiet start, the bar took off by mid-summer with a series of private parties and soirées that ramped-up its social standings.

    A mirrored ceiling of smoky glass and crystal chandelier bring a refined vibe to plank-floored space with its cozy bistro tables and rattan bar stools that at times feels like a Buenos Aires tango bar. With a wink and a nod to classic Floridian design, elements of deco glamour envelope the single-room piano bar has hosted star-partiers like Jamie Foxx and Lindsay Lohan. Each night a variety of live music performances take place ranging from a solo piano man at the Lucite baby grand to celebrity DJs spinning the night away with acid rock and Ronson tracks.
