While perhaps best known for its pristine beaches and vibrant nightlife, Miami Beach and its surrounding communities also have a rich and fast growing art scene. There are a wide variety of galleries, theaters, festivals, and other cultural attractions in close proximity to our boutique Miami Beach Hotel.
Some historic and acclaimed destinations nearby include Lincoln Road’s Colony Theatre, the celebrated Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater, and Olympia Theater at the Gusman Center for the Performing Arts (located in Downtown Miami just off the MacArthur Causeway).
Built in 2011, the New World Center is home to the New World Symphony, which is acclaimed for its orchestra concerts, chamber music, family concerts, and many free events. The adjacent Sound Scape Park is a masterful outdoor space known for its Wall Casts – free screening of concerns and movies on a 7,000-square-foot wall.
A short drive to Downtown Miami via the MacArthur Causeway will take you to the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, the second-largest performance center in the country. It features the world-class talents of the Miami City Ballet, the New World Symphony, Florida Grand Opera, and City Theatre; as well as numerous national and international groups, such as the Mark Morris Dance Group and the famed Cleveland Orchestra.
While on the mainland, you can venture south to Cutler Bay to visit one of the city’s newest arts venues, the $51-million South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center. Designed the renowned Arquitectonica International, it includes several performance venues, an outdoor plaza for festivals and art shows, and a spacious lawn for concerts.
These are just a handful of first-rate cultural venues that are accessible from the Z Ocean South Beach Hotel. Our chic boutique destination is a vacation all on its own, with sumptuous suites overlooking the ocean, and a vast array of five-star services and amenities that cater to your every need. There is no better place from which to enjoy the best that South Florida has to offer.
