Slated to open on December 13, 2023, subject to regulatory approvals, this grand establishment will unveil an impressive lineup of 36 pioneering restaurants and bars, with more to follow in 2024. This ambitious venture follows the success of Fontainebleau Miami Beach, which has been a beacon of luxury hospitality for decades.
