Today The Gabriel South Beach, Curio Collection by Hilton, a new lifestyle hotel on Ocean Drive, announced it will open on Miami Beach this fall. The sprawling property is the sister property to The Gabriel Miami, Curio Collection by Hilton located in downtown Miami. Boasting the greatest linear footage on Miami Beach's most iconic street, this historic property has 132 guest rooms and suites and two pools, including a show-stopping, glass bottom pool on the roof overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The Gabriel South Beach is also home to two destination restaurants, Meet Dalia and Meet Mia, by INK Entertainment, one of North America's leading lifestyle and entertainment companies.
Located at 640 Ocean Drive, The Gabriel South Beach is comprised of four individual buildings - including the historic Park Central Hotel, Heathcote Apartments and the Imperial Hotel, presenting travelers with the classic Art Deco design and architecture synonymous with Miami Beach.
The highly anticipated opening of The Gabriel South Beach pioneers a resurgence of allure, charisma and exclusivity on Ocean Drive reminiscent of the 1930s golden age of glamour. This new upscale, lifestyle-driven boutique hospitality project will help anchor one of the most photographed stretches of Miami Beach and contribute to the destination's cultural evolution and refinement.
The hotel blends Art Deco modernism with tropical allure. A standout feature is the rooftop sun deck with a glass-bottom pool that reflects dancing images on the interior walls of the atrium. The rooftop pool, located on the hotel's breathtaking terrace, overlooks the Atlantic coastline and will be home to a satellite bar exclusive to guests staying in the hotel's 12 suites. The space will also be open for private evening events for up to 100 guests. This rooftop will serve as a preferred venue for many of the hotel's exclusive soirees and special events for both hotel guests and locals.
Guests will find a 30-foot-tall mural by the French-born, Los Angeles-based street artist Mr. Brainwash, known for his large-scale installations and prints of celebrities like Madonna, Kate Moss, and Marilyn Monroe and his practice of subverting cultural iconography similar to Andy Warhol and Banksy. Fusing pop art elements, Mr. Brainwash uses a broad color scheme - transitioning from a bright palette at the top of the mural featuring vivid blues, pinks, yellows and reds to a more somber range of browns, greys and black at the bottom.
The Gabriel South Beach is managed by Highgate, a leading real estate investment and hospitality management company whose portfolio includes more than 160 properties in gateway cities worldwide.
