ABOUT THE FLORIDA ROOM AT DELANO: The irresistible allure of mid-century Miami Beach nightlife returns to the city in The Florida Room at Delano. A dazzling collaboration between Morgans Hotel Group and Kravitz Design, The Florida Room is a modern-day piano lounge inspired by a classic period of South Floridian glamour. The focal point of The Florida Room is a Lucite grand piano which has already been played by music legends like Lenny Kravitz and Jamie Foxx. Sparkling subtly beneath the smoky-bronze mirrored ceiling and custom-designed chandeliers, the piano sets the stage for live performances mid-evening and premier international DJ talent into the late night hours. From the custom furnishings to the over thirty exclusively handcrafted specialty cocktails imbued with a Cuban/Latin feel, The Florida Room is an intimate speakeasy that evokes a bygone era while being a thoroughly fresh addition to Miami Beach and the iconic Delano. The Florida Room is located in the Delano hotel at 1685 Collins Ave, Miami Beach ,FL 33139
