Lenny Kravitz: Hotel Lounge Designer
WWD reports that Kravitz, working with his firm Kravitz Design, will spearhead the project as a creative director.
"I love the musical history of Miami Beach," says Kravitz, who made his first site visit to the Delano this week. "The Beatles, James Brown and Frank Sinatra all spent time here." To capture that mood, he's creating a speakeasy-style space, tucked underneath the hotel's Blue Door restaurant.
The lounge should be open by next December in time for Art Basel which is practically the Delano's favorite holiday.
This is the second time the Morgans Hotel Group has signed on a celeb/famous person to create a hotel lounge for them. Remember that Amy Sacco of Bungalow 8 in New York has opened an outpost in the St. Martins Lane hotel in London.
We just wonder, did Lenny's music studio ever open up in the Setai? And if it did, isn't this new deal with Morgans like cheating?
