About our Host                                
                                                              The Hotel Astor


Hotel Astor Hotel Astor is a boutique Art Deco hotel in the heart of South Beach. With 1936 Vitrolite wall panels and a cut coral facade, we’re an architectural gem. Just ask the Miami Design Preservation League. Some come for the history, the gleam in our original terrazzo floors. Others come for our stellar location, just steps from the beach. As for us, we love the music.

The Downstairs, our newly renovated eatery and bar, hosts a gig every night. Think craft spirits paired with bold-flavored bites inspired by the artist of the hour. We even have an in-house musical director programming the most eclectic music series on the beach, everything from Latin rhythms to bluesy soul to international DJ beats. Come stay for the curated sound, the edgy sophistication, and the energetic vibe.
