If you haven’t visited us in a while, you’ll surely notice a new look at Bleau Bar, our famed lobby bar. Gone are the glowing blue floors and circular center bar tower, replaced with a new design that honors the “Miami Modern” style of Fontainebleau’s original Morris Lapidus design, while incorporating the new era of Miami art and design, featuring refined materials, such as terrazzo, bronze, and velvet in shades of blue and gold. Designed in partnership with The Rockwell Group, the palette creates a sumptuous, yet contemporary environment for the bar and lounge, all framed by the original windows of Fontainebleau’s Lobby.
A standout to the new design is the teardrop, sculpture- like bar with a striking, blue ombre that envelops the surrounding area, further defining the space as an oasis within the lobby. The fading ombre from light to dark creates a sense of movement. A refined terrazzo floor in 11 shades of blue flows to the bar in sweeping lines, reinforcing a serene gradient effect. A translucent, tiered glass liquor riser floats in the middle of the bar to complement the updated layout, which also offers additional seating options that create more flexibility within the space. Surrounding the bar, clusters of low cocktail-style seating and tables create a plush lounge, offering adaptable areas for intimate and large gatherings. Custom velvet banquettes with hints of gold frame the original windows and offer a glimpse of the hotel’s iconic poolscape. The original gold mosaic columns have been enhanced, featuring custom uplighting that creates a soft glow adding a sense of drama and glamour.
Rockwell Group designed a series of 16-foot tall screens in collaboration with artist John-Paul Philippe to further define the space, composed of delicate bronze and Glass. Stop by for a cocktail and see why Bleau Bar was recently named the “#1 People Watching Spot in Miami!”
