Why: This just-opened hot spot is the brainchild of some of the biggest names in design, food, and hospitality.
Designer Philippe Starck, chefs José Andrés and Michael Schwartz, and hospitality visionary Sam Nazarian—founder of the SLS brand—were just some of the big names involved in the creation of Miami’s latest hot spot. Opened right in time for Art Basel, the 124-room SLS Brickell Hotel & Residences is sleek and modern, featuring a spa and fitness center, a pool deck with views for miles, and two chef-driven restaurants. A collection of 450 luxury residences is also in the pipeline for guests who want to make the SLS experience a permanent lifestyle. (sbe.com)
