Miami is now so much more than the world-famous Ocean Drive—one of the most photographed stretches of Miami Beach. It’s also neon lights and sidewalk cafes. More importantly, Miami is now a sought-after destination for corporate groups of any size and from anywhere in the world. Instead of simple hotel function room, why not try one of these fabulous event spaces for your next event:
1. The Versace Mansion
Nestled amid low-rise Art Deco hotels, and the best-known property on Ocean Drive, is the Villa Casa Casuarina—better- known as the Versace Mansion. The former home of late fashion designer Gianni Versace is now a museum and a hotel.
If your group is too large to stay at the famed mansion turned hotel, they can indulge in the villa's Baroque grandeur with a dinner at Gianni's, and an aperitif in the intimate, clubby Onyx Bar, in the space that used to be Versace's kitchen.
With a capacity for a group of up to 600 guests, the award-winning corporate event venue, the Temple House, comes with a beautiful indoor space with 25-foot high barreled ceilings or with a stunning outdoor space for those warm Miami nights.
The Event Space at 1306, with its white gallery walls, comes with beautifully-finished indoor and outdoor spaces for groups of up to 400 guests. The venue is a blank palette for event of any nature or needs.
4. STK Rebel
The STK offers a number of gorgeous event and private dining spaces, enough for 180 guests for cocktails and 108 guests for a seated dinner. Above the main dining room, the mezzanine level has three private entertaining suites for intimate get-togethers, which can be combined for larger events.
Built in 1921 as a furniture showroom for the company Moore and Sons, the historic Moore Building is located in the heart of the Design District. Perfect for larger groups, the Moore Building can accommodate over 1,000 guests for a seated dinner or over 4,000 guests for a reception in the building’s central atrium
