Miami: Dignified Retro Openings on the Art Basel Trail

If you, too, have been looking for a stylish reprieve from the madness that is Collins Avenue during Art Basel, Gale South Beach will have your sullen heart skip a beat. Outfitted in the finest Italian details and light-washed interiors, the newly-opened hotel to the growing portfolio of Keith Menin ( who brought  swagger to West Ave. with the Mondrian Hotel), Gale breathes fresh air into a historic property big on old-school charm. Should some shut-eye in one of the rooms that boast the ’40s glamorous stylings not be in your future, Gale’s open to the public wine-and-dine ‘em offerings will make you a believer in the rebirth of cool, even if the lingering artsy-fartsy types make you feel like grandma Suzie.

At soon-to-open Dolce Italian, the menu reads like a wet dream of any gluttonous creature (baby spinach and pumpkin ravioli with smoked ricotta or shortrib cannelloni with porcini cream, anyone?) and The Regent Cocktail Club, a mega-civilized alternative to the drunken ruckus that abounds beyond Gale’s stylish gates, would make the Rat Pack proud.
