After a five-year renovation, Esmé, comprised of 145 guest rooms and five original food and beverage concepts across a series of eight buildings, offers a chic Miami Beach escape that honors the street’s original village vision.
Collaborating closely with Infinity during the property’s renovation, Jessica Schuster Design has created a whimsical and captivating backdrop for the Esmé experience. Playing with an artful combination of jewel tones, textured mahogany, and gold accents, Schuster’s vision takes guests on a journey through her modern interpretation of classic design elements. Esmé’s rooms and suites offer the thrill of being ushered into a world filled with rich rose and emerald colors, and the velvety light of the Mediterranean filtered through a Miami lens. With nods to the joyous decadence of days past, every detail has been carefully chosen, from the luxe Bellino linens and Grown Alchemist bath amenities, to custom designed furnishings and finishes.
Infinity enlisted Miami-based Lost Boy & Co. co-founder Chris Hudnall and acclaimed chef Fabian DiPaolo to oversee the food and beverage program for Esmé, resulting in El Salón, Bar Pintxo, and The Roof at Esmé, three of five dynamic concepts in the hotel that infuse both Spanish and Latin influences with a little swagger.
To punctuate the Esmé village, Casa Matanza is a standalone building accessed via a tunnel through the paseos that delivers guests to the more mysterious side of the street at Drexel Avenue. Rich with culture and history, the building features a darker, more vivid color palette in its guest rooms. It is also home to The Drexel, a new coastal Mediterranean restaurant from the team behind Miami’s acclaimed Mandolin Aegean Bistro, and Tropezón, an Andalusian style kitchen & gin bar from Lost Boy & Co.
