Lenny Kravitz to Work His Hotel Sex Magic on The SLS South Beach
We didn't think it was possible but the hotel scene in South Beach is going to get a whole lot sexier next spring. SLS Hotel South Beach has just announced that Lenny Kravitz is designing some suites for them.
SBE, the parent company of SLS Hotels and run by nightlife man Sam Nazarian, has put Lenny's Kravitz Design Inc. in charge of creating an exclusive bungalow and penthouse suite at the hotel. The bungalow suite will be one of 10 that will surround the pool area and we expect it to be nothing less than the sexiest of sexy suites. But will you make us pancakes in the morning, Lenny? That remains to be seen.
The rest of the hotel's interiors will, of course, be designed by Philippe Starck who has a special arrangement with SLS Hotels. But Philippe is more than down to share the design spotlight with Lenny calling him,
"a weapon of massive construction. He is an explosion of all talents, an unlimited boiling bucket of culture, a daily firework, a tireless explorer. Lenny is incredibly alive. Lenny is a friend."
Awww, Philippe has a man crush!
More news on SLS South Beach reveal that Chef Jose Andres will work his culinary magic here again as the hotel's Culinary Director while Master Sushi Chef Katsuya Uechi will open his Katsuya restaurant inside the hotel as well.
Lastly, and perhaps most exciting for hotel industry folks, the hotel has gotten a general manager. His name is Albert Mertz and he most recently worked at the W South Beach. Oooo. With the hotel expected to open next spring we bet the W will be on guard to say the least. We can't wait!
