Moxy South Beach Is Now Open With Two Rooftop Bars, A Rooftop Restaurant, & Two Rooftop Pools

The Moxy South Beach is now open – the first resort style property in the world with Marriott’s Moxy brand.

The eight-story hotel includes 202 rooms.

There are two rooftop pools, multiple rooftop bars, and a rooftop restaurant. The pool on the second floor has a cutout on the bottom, allowing guests in the lobby to watch swimmers from below.

Developer Lightstone Group hired the Miami restaurateurs behind Coyo Taco and 1-800-Lucky to create six new exclusive food and beverage concepts, drawing on Mexican, Caribbean, and local flavors.

They include:

  • Bar Moxy, in the lobby
  • Los Buenos on the ground floor
  • Serena, an open-air rooftop restaurant and bar on the second floor
  • The Upside, the eighth floor rooftop bar next to a pool
  • Como Como, a marisqueria (seafood restaurant) and raw bar opening April 2021
  • Mezcalista, a sexy and mysterious mezcal lounge

Rockwell Group designed public spaces, bedrooms, and collaborated on exterior design. Saladino Design Studios designed Serena, Como Como. Exteriors are by Kobi Karp (in collaboration with Rockwell).

Great project, need lots more like this on Washington Collins and Ocean to clean the area up and make it what it used to be and not the mess it is now. Miami Beach needs to loosen up on Art Deco or risk South Beach becoming horrendous

This project and the new Goodtime Hotel on 6th st is a game changer for Washington Ave. Lots of restaurants and bars along with an incredible amount of amenity space inside and out. Great project!

This project preserved the deco façade, right? Reasonable compromise.

Not to be an Anderson Pooper elitist, but it looks like a glorified Residence Inn. So many of these giant low-rise projects have been horrendous and as out of scale as any high-rise compared to the old Streamline Moderne hotels on small lots. I say let high-rises but built. They just have to be of commensurate architecture as low-rise prewar buildings and evoke the spirt of Fisher and Collins.

Love it. Great addition to South Beach, Washington Ave needs at least 5 more of this.

At least eight hundred people a year is killed and injured in Florida while riding bicycles. Yeah sure, we need more bicycle lanes in Florida.

Question:

I see they preserved the Art Deco facades of the retail stores that used to line that block, but are there reconstructed spaces behind the facades that are going to be leased as individual stores again? Or are they now just fake facades with nothing behind them but the hotel?

Thanks for taking my call, I’ll hang up and listen.
