It's been the hottest hotel lounge in South Beach almost since the day it opened. FDR at the Delano Hotel brings a sophisticated and relevant Miami party crowd to its lower-level lounge that's been turned into a glamorous 40s style drinking den currently atop the South Beach social scene.  A clubby design of leather tufted walls, chocolaty hardwood floors and mirrored coffer ceiling frame a VIP-minded space of low-flung bottle service tables and cushier lounge with leather banquettes. Shimmering disco balls and murals of partially submerged cocoon an equally sexy crowd in a wall of glamour as moonlighting DJs from Luciano to Pete Tong spin the 4am hour away in style. 

Tips

For nightlife newcomers, no less than two lines await you on a Saturday night at FDR including one outside the Delano and one to get inside the actual club. Save yourself the effort and simply book a room at the Delano which is cheaper than VIP bottle service in the long run.

Last Word

FDR Lounge is managed by former-Liquid owners and Madonna posse Ingrid Casares and Chris Paciello who have partnered with The Light Group that also manages clubs like 1Oak, Bank and Haze in Las Vegas.
