Mayfair Hotel & Spa in Coconut Grove, Fla, is opening a rooftop Cabana One Pool Club & Lounge today. Later this month it will open the famed New York steakhouse Angelo & Maxie’s, complete with an orchid-filled, open-air atrium and Japanese soaking tubs on private bougainvillea-covered terraces.
Cabana One Pool Club & Lounge is the vision of New York public relations guru Ron Berkowitz and New York restaurateur Josh Lebowitz. Cabana One is a chic, tropical escape from the hustle and bustle of South Beach.
The 7,000 square feet of space features floating cabana roof and planks of teakwood that comprise the bar area while a serpentine bench built into the parapet winds around a fire feature. Billowing white curtains enclose eight private cabanas with L-shaped sofas, flat-screen TVs and private safes. Cabana One is also the only club to offer Nintendo Wii centers coupled with high end bottle service.
The steakhouse is known for its friendly atmosphere, perfectly seasoned steaks and American abundance at moderate prices. Reminiscent of an old Cuban sugar mill, the restaurant features vintage stones, extensive millwork and La Cantina doors that open up into the open-air atrium.
Additional updates at the Mayfair include lobby renovations. A floating island reception desk located in a private enclave of the lobby welcomes guests to Mayfair, while minimal lounge furniture opens up the lobby, creating an overall inviting space. To coincide with the design of Angelo & Maxie’s, the extended lobby bar conveys the same mill and stonework, recreating the sugar mill decor.
