Standard Culture Presents: The Miami Issue

Miami-This Just In!
Out of all of our hotels, our guests seem to have the strongest attachment to The Standard Spa, Miami Beach. We get it. From the “welcome home” hug when you arrive to the social bathing culture that prevails to the mussels á la plancha and rosé at The Lido Grill, there’s a lot to love. The property and the city occupy a very special place in our hearts, too. 

Set between South Beach and Downtown, but seemingly worlds away from both, the property offers a respite that few beside locals ever experience. It helps us not see Miami through South Beach-tinted lenses and gives us a different perspective on the city and its way of life—a first-hand view of the incredible evolution that Miami has undergone since we first opened our doors ten years ago. 

In this issue, we take a look at some of the forces that contribute to the city’s unique identity, especially its cultural diversity and spirit that allow it to not just overcome, but thrive in the face of economic booms and busts, extreme weather, and health crises, emerging out of each moment a city even more compelling than it was before. 

Enjoy this deep dive into Magic City.
