In It to Vin It
Just a Fantastically Retro Boutique Hotel
Yeah, it’s going to be that kind of a day.
And it’ll happen at Vintro Hotel & Kitchen, a wonderfully sexy abode with a giant graphic of a nude woman in the lobby, now open in Miami Beach.
This was the Park Avenue Hotel in 1934. Jazz bands played. Socialites Lindy-hopped. It was a pretty grand affair. In fact, the original sign is still out front.
And now, it’s 50 rooms of pop-art-laden lodging. For you to...
Put yourself up.
In a two-bedroom suite. One with artwork on the walls (that you can buy) and a glass-wall voyeur shower next to the bedroom. Have at it.
Sip a cocktail.
Like a JFK (bourbon, orange bitters, vanilla bean) in the lobby’s Scorpion bar. Marilyn sends her regards.
Throw a soiree.
The rooftop lounge has been outfitted with hammocks, table tennis and an infinity plunge pool. Sounds like the makings of a great private party.
While you can grab lamb burgers for lunch at the rustic Vintro Kitchen right now, dinner will have to wait until August 14.
So back to the bar it is.
