The lounge, located on the 50th floor of the Viceroy Hotel, offers impressive views of Biscayne Bay and a unique décor by renowned designer Kelly Wearstler.

Built in 1926 as a private club that once hosted dignitaries and celebrities, the Bath Club has now been renovated as a private event space that still invokes 1920s glamour. The 26,000-square-feet facility has a variety of spaces to hold large events or smaller celebrations, including a private beachfront that makes for a beautiful backdrop to exchange your vows. The main building has an old Florida feel and indoor spaces with capacity for up to 300 guests. The palm tree-lined courtyard is a charming location for a ceremony, small outdoor reception or cocktail party and the airy ballroom is a dreamy space to dine with your guests and dance the night away.
Take a step back in time at the Cloisters of the Ancient Spanish Monastery. This romantic venue is a popular choice among Miami brides. The parts that make up the structure were originally built in 1133 in Segovia, Spain where monks occupied the space. In 1925, William Randolph Hearst bought the Cloisters and had them shipped to the United States where they sat in storage until they were purchased in 1952 and eventually reassembled in North Miami. Now an important part of Miami’s history, the site offers a range of options. Couples can exchange vows under an old Banyan tree, at the monastery’s chapel, or in the monastery’s gardens. Receptions may be held outdoors, in the Cloisters or at the monastery’s loggia.
