Set on an exclusive site on 29th Street and Collins Avenue, The Miami Beach EDITION is located in its own private space, right on the beach. Conceived in collaboration with architects George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg, and landscape designer Madison Cox, this metropolitan resort is in a class of its own. Visitors are met with a combination of great design and innovation, personal and friendly service, and one-of-a-kind dining and entertainment offerings “all under one roof.” The luxury experience begins right as guests enter the establishment, as they are enveloped by a signature, custom-made Le Labo scent.
This Miami gem boasts elegant indoor venues with natural lighting, a modern aesthetic, and an outdoor space with ocean views that are available year-round. Plan a romantic outdoor wedding under the South Beach sun in the Outdoor Space or La Vista Terrance – both of which feature expansive ocean views and an additional 300 square feet of alcove space, ideal for bars and buffets. The two venues come with banquet menus created by Jean-Georges Vongerichte and are also well-suited for rehearsal dinners. A series of additional event spaces featuring custom-oak millwork and paneling with integrated lighting are available as well.
When hosting a wedding at The Miami Beach EDITION, the hotel offers complimentary furnishings like folding chairs for outdoor ceremonies, vegan leather banquet chairs for indoor ceremonies, a stage, rotatable round tables with white linens, and a wooden dance floor. Couples are also welcome to a selection of glassware, china, silverware, votive candles, printed menus, high and low cocktail tables, buffet tables, wooden bars and delectable in-house catering. Rather than giving clients a list of preferred vendors, The Miami Beach EDITION urges couples to feel free to work with a team of their own chosen experts, free of obligation. To maintain a high standard of quality, the hotel prides itself on only hosting one wedding per evening, making it completely exclusive to the wedding party and their guests.
For accommodations, this remarkable venue features 294 guest rooms, suites, and bungalows – not to mention, a soaring penthouse with stunning ocean views. A lobby bar is situated within view of the ocean (the only one in Miami Beach), and you’ll also find a full-floor entertainment area complete with a bowling alley, ice skating rink, and nightclub. The swanky ambiance is perfected by a state-of-the-art sound system with dramatic lighting and projection effects, created by world-renowned lighting designer Patrick Woodruff.
If guests want to unwind, they can relax by one of two outdoor swimming pools with bars, personal cabanas, and lounge areas; or kick back and watch movies at the outdoor movie theater and beach. The hotel possesses 70,000 square feet of beachfront property and an 1,800 square foot, 24-hour state-of-the-art, high-performance gym and spa.
Adding to this indulgent list of amenities, Michelin-starred chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten offers Market at EDITION – a food hall-inspired dining destination in the heart of Miami Beach. Serving everything from pizza and ceviche, to wine and pressed juices, this café-style dining room overlooks bustling Collins Avenue. If a more elaborate restaurant is what one is seeking, guests can go on an extraordinary culinary adventure at Matador Room, the signature restaurant of The Miami Beach EDITION. Enjoying a chic, supper club-like ambiance reminiscent of the 1940s, Matador Room serves up Latin cuisine inspired by the flavors of South America, the Caribbean and Spain. Also developed by Michelin-starred Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, every bite on the menu is an experience in the delights of fine dining that guests will never forget.
Needless to say, The Miami Beach EDITION has everything a couple could want for a luxury wedding, and more. Visit editionhotels.com for more information.
