The Confidante Miami Beach Offers 'Retro-Glam' Meetings and Events
Entertainers Lil Wayne, Dua Lipa, and Lady Gaga have made this Collins Avenue resort their location of choice for concerts, music videos, and photo shoots—and your clients can bask in Miami Beach glam, too. Located between the energy of South Beach and the culture of Miami's hip arts districts, The Confidante Miami Beach is a nostalgic and playful celebration of its “retro-glam” roots. The oceanfront oasis provides a kaleidoscope of experiences like vibrant mid-century modern decor, direct access to famous Miami Beach, a chic backyard pool vibe with two heated pools (one for adults only), colorful poolside cabanas, bungalows, and cool cocktail scene. The welcoming retreat features nearly 30,000 square feet of dynamic indoor and outdoor meeting and event space and 354 guestrooms, including 14 suites with iconic Art Deco architecture and colorful 1950s-inspired design.
Newly renovated meeting spaces boast natural light, smart technology, and thoughtful mid-century modern details that inspire creativity for events and functions of up to 1,000 guests. Select from a backdrop of a refined lobby bar and adjoining terrace, open-air terrace overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, a funky backyard bungalow, and two ballrooms, including the newly debuted Carmen Miranda Oceanfront Ballroom, featuring nearly 5,000 square feet of space with a pre-function area, vibrant indoor ballroom, and private terrace with views of the pools, beach, and lush palms. A dedicated team of planners takes care of the details, including restaurant-quality catering menus prepared by the talented culinary team at Bird & Bone, the hotel's signature on-site eatery.
Add some local flavor to your program with Miami-centric offerings. When not putting on weekend fitness classes for hotel guests, greenmonkey®, a renowned Miami Beach yoga studio, and SobeKick, Miami's premier boutique kickboxing studio, are leading private activations for groups of all sizes. The Confidante supports local artisans who regularly curate personalized experiences for groups. Breaks at The Confidante feature handmade paletas from Cielito Artisan Pops (yes, handed out from a custom 1930s-style gelato cart!), gourmet treats from local favorite Azucar Ice Cream Company, and custom truffles from Exquisito Chocolates, Miami's first "bean-to-bar" chocolate factory using only ethically sourced cacao.
When you're not in meetings, "bleisure" is in full effect with a mod rooftop spa featuring the latest in wellness trends, including a Customized Crystal Massage Journey and magnet face masks. Sit down to handcrafted salads, bites, and drinks served in fresh coconuts by the pools and beach, or grab a guava-and-cheese pastelito with your authentic Cuban coffee from Cafecito Bar. Be sure to indulge in Miami's best fried chicken at Bird & Bone, the Southern-inspired eatery led by celebrated South Florida chef Richard Hales, sourcing a menu from independent farms, organic butchers, and local craft breweries.
Guests enjoy day and night entertainment, including a rotating local art exhibit, daily hotel-wide happy hour, and live music and sounds from local DJs several days a week. After lounging on the beach, borrow a complimentary beach cruiser to explore nearby South Beach or venture to Miami's dynamic neighborhoods such as the artsy Wynwood, the Design District shopping mecca, and foodie haven of Little Havana, all within a 15-minute ride.
