The sparkling sun, soft sand, and cool, clear waters of Miami have attracted elite visitors from around the world for well over a century, laying the foundation for a culture of laidback luxury that continues to define the city today. Of the many Miami institutions, none better embodies this spirit than the Surf Club. For more than eight decades, the glamorous cabanas have played host to celebrities and personalities such as Tony Bennett, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Winston Churchill, and Elizabeth Taylor, while the resort’s legendary parties remain a beloved memory throughout Miami.
On the eve of a redesign by star architect Richard Meier, this volume, featuring a foreword by Pamela Fiori, celebrates the spectacular past, present, and future of what many regard as the jewel of Miami Beach.
