Conceived as a cool, fun, and fresh retreat by owner Jonathan Morr, Townhouse Hotel in South Beach, Miami, Florida offers accommodations and lodging with a playful combination of modern design and old-fashioned comfort. Situated in the midst of South Beach, Miami and only steps away from the ocean, Collins Avenue, and many of the Art Deco hotspots, Townhouse Hotel provides guests with a sleek and sexy hideaway for a weekend getaway or a long retreat. We are introducing the newly renovated Rooftop Lounge/Sushi Bar.
Its meant to be a fresh, simple, fun place to be, says owner Jonathan Morr, whose previous successes include hip downtown Manhattan restaurants Republic and Bond St, as well as the Condesa d.f. hotel in Mexico City. Morr is also celebrated in Miami for having opened Blue Door the Delano Hotel’s restaurant. The theme is conveyed in both the design refreshing and irreverent and the unassuming prices.
Built in 1939, the 69-room five-story building has been creatively redefined by young Paris-based designer India Mahdavi, whose minimalist furnishings provide maximum relaxation and leisure. The hallways have been re-invented with equal flippancy, serving as hangout environments soundtracked in stereo, stocked with benches, newspapers, and comics. The idea was to create a happy, unpretentious place for people who have style but dont need to spend a lot of money, says the multicultural Mahdavi. People who just want to hang around somewhere thats both edgy and fun.
With Mahdavis striking color, light and lines, TOWNHOUSE is an idyllic setting for production, be it photographic, film, or other. Oversized baby blue pillows adorn each bed, complementing giant rugs in scarlet and blue. L-shaped couches could double as crash pads for overnight guests. Flowered cardinal red sexy lampshades that mix art deco with modern technology. The rooftop features seating and tables along with lounge chairs for sunbathing. At night from Thursday through Saturday the rooftop transforms into a lounge.
