Throwing a successful business bash is part art, part science. But if you throw it in a world-renowned locale like Miami—you’ve got it made. Let's take a look at two of the newest, hottest, and most unique venues in Greater Miami and the Beaches to hold your next meeting or event.
To make your next meeting or event truly unique and memorable, the Faena Hotel in Miami Beach boasts bona fide authenticity where refined design and elegant simplicity create one-of-a-kind experiences. Celebrated as one of Miami Beach’s most glamorous venues, the Faena Hotel offers the kind of service and style that makes guests feel like royalty. The interior schemes of the hotel are where classic art deco and Miami’s artful craftsmanship meet. The hotel’s guest rooms and idyllic meeting spots share a singular thread of understated, refined luxury at this oceanside hotel.
Evoking the glory days of Miami Beach, the Faena Hotel strives to surprise and delight at every opportunity. The hotel is part of the Faena District, a massive master planned arts/entertainment/residential development that stretches four blocks along Collins Avenue and 32nd Street.
Each evening, the hotel offers live performances in its 150-seat cabaret-style theater, which is also available for corporate meetings and events. In addition to the Faena Theatre, there are a variety of beautifully curated indoor and outdoor spaces available for groups of all sizes. Perhaps most impressive is the hotel’s La Cava dining room, which includes a hand-carved 22-seat private dining table by Frank Pollaro, surrounded by an outstanding collection of world-class wines. The intimate space caters to private wine tastings and sophisticated multi-course menus customized by Faena’s executive chef.
The hotel blends world class architecture with modern conveniences, so attendees can revel in lavish luxury long after their meeting or event has ended. The hotel’s signature butlers, available for every guestroom floor, completes the exceptional service for which the Faena Hotel is known.
