A Gypsy’s Dream at Casa Faena

Grupo Gitano will officially debut its first Miami outpost at Casa Faena during Miami Art Week, featuring a modern take on Mexican cooking, iconic mezcal cocktails and tropical, gypsy-disco musical performances.  The new restaurant and landscaped social spaces will dish up a taste of Tulum and the Yucatán amidst a veritable jungle of lush tropical greenery in the boutique hotel’s main dining room, wraparound cocktail terraces and sea-view roof garden. Known for its chic, fun gathering spots in Tulum and New York City, Grupo GITANO is a fan-favorite of the fashionable and flamboyant. Casa Faena proved itself to be a seamless fit for the brand’s defining elements: tropical oasis, Mexican flavors and well-heeled clientele. “Miami has been calling us,” explains founder James Gardner. “Alan Faena is a big inspiration; he is a true creative visionary who has brought his own point of view to hospitality in South Beach. We are excited to compliment this, bringing some of our Gitano magic to Miami Beach.” Gitano at Casa Faena will be the group’s most intimate property to date. The entire experience transports guests to another time and place, inspired but the sultry jungle of Tulum and the Spanish-Colonial towns of the Yucatan, Mexico. The roof garden, which overlooks sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean, is outfitted with a central tented lounge flanked by twin bar-lounges, teepees, cozy banquets, water installations and outdoor showers. The spaces are brought to life by designer touches from custom furniture produced in Tulum, to bohemian Indian print pillows, lots of tropical plants, textured plaster walls, vintage light fixtures, and of course Gitano’s iconic pink neon sign and disco ball installation.
