In Le Miami
We’re only a week into 2016 and the South Beach hotel scene is as dynamic as ever (see our news about The Shore Club and The Raleigh), but now it’s time to shine the spotlight on downtown Miami where The Langford Hotel is about to open.
Located at 121 SE 1st Street, The Langford is a Beaux Arts beauty that was built in 1925. Formerly the home of the Miami National Bank, the building earned a spot on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989. On March 1, it will reopen as a 126-guest room hotel with a second-floor sky lobby, a coffee bar and lounge, and two F&B outlets from Miami’s own PubbellyBoys.
Guest rooms are on the smaller side but feature a mixture of modern and classical amenities like tufted leather headboards outfitted with reading lights, whimsical wallpaper, hardwood floors, black tiled bathrooms, rotary phones, and valet stands.
But we surmise that most visitors will flock to The Langford for the PB Station restaurant from Pubbelly Boys chef Jose Mendin, a four-time James Beard nominee. PB Station promises to be a “fun, immersive dining experience” with a focus on steaks, seafood, and locally sourced produce. And the piece de resistance will be the rooftop bar and lounge, Pawn Broker, offering hand-crafted cocktails, tapas-style bites, and killer views of downtown.
