New Ballroom in South Beach. The Belle of the Ballroom. It’s no secret that Miami, particularly South Beach, has tons of beautiful hotels boasting incredible views — from cityscapes to our coveted turquoise ocean. From an events company perspective, it’s one of the top requests from clients — everyone wants an affair to remember with a “view.” While Miami isn’t lacking in hotels with gorgeous vistas, many of those hotels do lack enough ballroom space to accommodate large parties. Most groups that we work with, especially those visiting South Florida, need a place to stay with plenty of room for meetings, events, dinners and receptions.
The Mondrian South Beach now meets that need in a big way with a new ballroom. The swanky hotel, which is positioned away from the touristy area of South Beach, sits on a prime waterfront location with views of Biscayne Bay and downtown Miami. Designed by the whimsical Marcel Wanders, every inch of the Mondrian has a flair for drama with a signature floating staircase and oversized accents.
Adding to their other event spaces like the north and south studios, penthouse lounge and “kissing gardens,” the hotel recently converted their former bar area into a sprawling event space called the Sunset Ballroom. At 2,600-square-feet, there’s plenty of room for any type of event you desire. Facing the glistening bay, the glass-enclosed Sunset Ballroom (think floor-to-ceiling windows) offers the chance to see yachts sail by, and just like its name, it’s one of the best spots to catch a sunset in South Beach. It’s a Miami moment, you and your guests will always remember! Extra bonus? There’s even the opportunity to have a cocktail reception on the terrace or under one of the exotically-decorated bayside cabanas. Whether you are at the Mondrian for business or pleasure there is the perfect space that will fit occasion.
