Lenny Kravitz, coming to a hotel near you
Sunday 17 July 2011
Grammy-award winning musician Lenny Kravitz is to once again turn his hand to hotel design, according to reports from the US.
The singer-songwriter is said to be working on rooms for the SLS Hotel at South Beach, set to open next year in Miami, Florida as a sister property to the luxury SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills, California.
It follows his company's previous work with the Delano Hotel in Miami, right across the street from where the SLS Hotel will be, where Kravitz was responsible for The Florida Room bar and lunge.
The rest of the SLS Hotel, however, will be designed by Philippe Starck, a design icon who has lent his skills to several famous boutique properties, including the Delano, the Mondrian Hotel in LA, the St Martins Lane and the Sanderson in London and Le Meurice in Paris.
With a beachfront location, it will feature a Katsuya sushi restaurant, another restaurant by José Andrés called The Bazaar, a Hyde Lounge nightclub which extends onto the sand and a hairdressing salon.
The property is set to open next March, according to reports, when it will join a cadre of hotels influenced by well known music figures - including U2's The Clarence in Dublin and Gloria Estefan's Costa d'Este Resort in Florida.
