Shake your Tail Feather: Elite Lounge Opens in Marlin Hotel

We've heard that the Marlin Hotel in the heart of Miami Beach has just-opened the Elite Lounge, a sultry, fuschia-steeped spot.

Channeling the red-hot heat of samba, this revamped sipping spot is merely phase one of a pending property-wide renovation. Rumor has it the boutique hotel will soon boast 14 new guestrooms as well as a curl-up with a cigar room, and a rooftop lounge.

Be sure to swing by on the weekends as Cirque du Soleil-esque dancers will be cascading right above your head as you sip a slew of high-end cocktails like a brash Bossa Nova brimming with pineapple, rosemary and vodka.
