Convinced the world he’s in New York this month.
See, truth is, he’s right beneath our very noses.
And you’ll find him (sort of) at the Riviera South Beach Hotel, a new 160-room boutique hotel in SoBe with Banksy-created art and its very own Cuban restaurant, taking reservations now.
If you haven’t already booked a spot for Basel, well, you can thank us later. This place is artsy (Banksy worked his magic on the bathroom tiling here), it’s plush (think: silk draperies and tufted-leather furniture), and it’s brand spanking new.
So after you’ve checked into your room—the penthouse suite with a gourmet kitchen, naturally—you’ll want to head to the rooftop sundeck. There you’ll relax on a black daybed by the pool and plan a loose itinerary: easing into the night with a ribeye (convenient: there’s grocery delivery and a personal chef service) before hitting Collins for the evening.
But you could also fuel up at the hotel’s 1950s-Havana-style café, Moreno’s Cuba. You’ll be going in for traditional Cuban plates like rabo encendido (that’s oxtail stew) and roast pork (that’s roast pork). Also, great spot for a stogie and a mojito at the bar.
Although there isn’t really a bad spot for that.
