In the late 1920s, business mogul Harvey Firestone sailed past Surfside, Florida, aboard his yacht, the Marybelle. Enchanted by this breathtaking stretch of golden beach and blue-green waters, Firestone – along with friends Carl Fisher and Irving Collins – immediately began dreaming about what it could become: a refuge for stars seeking to escape the limelight. On New Year’s Eve, 1930, the Surf Club was born.Read the original article
Miami's sunshine and good times have drawn visitors back for years, but a new hotel concept hopes to bring back some of the glamour of a bygone era.
The city has gone through plenty of reincarnations in its time -- there was the neon-pink "Miami Vice" scene of the 1980s, the elite velvet-rope days of Madonna and Versace and the boutique hotels in the 1990s. Then came the Kardashians and the spring breakers and the glitzy Art Basel crowds.

It’s a new golden age for the city’s historic Surf Club hotel, which was recently reopened by the Toronto-based hotel brand.
You’re not more than a few paces into the lobby of the new Four Seasons Hotel at the Surf Club before you see him: Winston Churchill, in a framed black-and-white photo on the wall, swaddled in a voluminous white smock, painting a seascape in a cabana on the property.
Positano's household name, Le Sirenuse, has arrived Stateside, with a restaurant and champagne bar situated in the historic Miami landmark the Surf Club. Serving authentic Italian cuisine at the iconic oceanfront property, in a space designed by Joseph Dirand, Le Sirenuse Miami is the family-owned resort's first venture away from its Amalfi home.
"Spectacular is the word for The Surf Club" ran a headline in the Miami Herald in November 1959. "Although some of the conservative set snub [it] as a glorified night club," gushed staff writer Betsy Buffington, "the Club itself makes no bones about what it is: an exclusive place to have FUN. There’s an aura of excitement about [it] – you never know what to expect next or which celebrity you may meet."
The Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club in Miami has been one of the most talked-about openings in recent times. The original Surf Club was founded by tyre tycoon Harvey Firestone in 1930. In its midcentury heyday it was the scene of beach-front misbehavings of the most exclusive sort. This was a club with closed doors, behind which anything could happen and much did. There were poolside fashion shows, late-night boxing galas, elephants at parties and booze on the beach during Prohibition. Visitors included Winston Churchill, Liberace, Frank Sinatra, Alfred Hitchcock and Mohammad Reza, Shah of Iran. It was a fantasy, a bubble, a world of its own.
The Surf Club is trying to regain some of the pizzazz from its early years. Founded in 1930 by Harvey Firestone (of tire fame), the Northern Miami Beach membership club drew glitzy personalities from Elizabeth Taylor and Frank Sinatra to Grace Kelly and Winston Churchill during its midcentury heyday. Its ocean views provided fodder for Churchill, who was documented painting a seascape at the club in 1946.

The country’s winter playground mixed together, like some garishly intoxicating cocktail, old-line WASPs with Detroit industrialists, Hollywood starlets with European royalty, ballroom dances with big crime syndicates.Read the original article
