This is The Faena Hotel's Art Deco Underground Cabaret

New, 2 comments

Here's a little secret hidden in plain site: the underground cabaret theater being built at the Faena Hotel Miami Beach at the old Saxony Hotel can be seen in the background of a promotional video featuring Alan Faena and Baz Luhrmann, released a year ago. It looks like a fantastically art deco space, perhaps inspired by the Queen Mary, the Normandie, and the Chrysler Building, all of which have (or had, in the Normandie's case) similar architectural elements. The cabaret is currently under construction and, although we weren't allowed to photograph it during our last site tour, we can say it does look very cool.
