Was it really a mere year ago that we all went down the Art Basel Miami Beach rabbit hole? It appears so, but it seems like only yesterday that we were donning our Future Eyes and striking out for the fairs. This year, we’ve decided to take a slightly different tack. Our plan is simply to lay back, revel in the serene joys of The Standard, Miami Beach, and let the beautiful chaos wash over us. Whatever happens, we’re going to take it all in stride, and comfort…we suggest you join us.
One thing you should certainly have on your list is The Lido Restaurant and Bayside Grill, which we've refreshed just in time for Basel. Thanks to the new awning, you can now dine by the Bay, rain or shine. In keeping with this breath of fresh air, Chef Mark has outfitted the Mediterranean-inspired menu with new dishes that are, as always, delicious. To make a reservation, email us (LidoBayside@StandardHotels.com) or call our reservation line: 786-245-0880.
Our event schedule is similarly stellar, and not to be missed, so start RSVPing to ensure your spot with us.++
