Up All Night The Catalina Hotel + Beach Club Charges Up for Sleepless Night Miami Beach 11/5/11

Exclusive hotel sponsor of Sleepless Night Miami Beach, The Catalina Hotel + Beach Club, has announced its eclectic line-up of installations taking place throughout the 13-hour event on November 5-6, 2011. On this special night, the three-building property will be decked out with daring art displays paired with funky foreign beats, the moves of Miami’s Shameless Burlesque Troupe and much more. The hotel will also serve as the main information booth for the event and is centrally located to many performance venues, making it an ideal spot to start or end the night.

Throughout the event, those looking to rest their tired tootsies and get a little people watching in can kick back in the Sleepless Night lounge located in front of the hotel on Miami’s main stretch – Collins Avenue. In the lounge guests can order a round of caffeinated cocktails, refuel with a few light bites or sample one of 12 flavors at the oxygen bar. When ready to depart, “sleep walkers” can hop aboard the complimentary Sleepless Night shuttle, with stops occurring at the lounge all evening long.

“We are extremely excited to be the official Sleepless Night Miami Beach host hotel for the second year,” said owner of The Catalina Hotel & Beach Club, Alan Lieberman. “We truly believe that this year’s all-night event will be bigger and better than ever, demonstrating that The City of Miami Beach as a whole has truly arrived as the next great destination for the performing arts.”
Co-owner Nathan Lieberman adds, “For the hotel specifically, it is a great opportunity to express our personal enthusiasm and passion for the arts. By offering a celebration throughout The Catalina’s three buildings, we are proud to give local South Florida artists a platform to perform as well as attracting locals and visitors to the city. Sleepless Night Miami Beach in many ways confirms why Miami Beach is one of the hottest destinations in the world.”
