Eric Milon’s Opium Group has once again produced a top-notch nightlife venue with their new Louis at the Gansevoort hotel. With the demise of Privé and Opium Garden, the stand-and-model crowd needed a new place to call their own.
With inspiration drawn from 18th century European opulence, the club’s décor exudes a chic decadence yet sports a few modern twists, such as graffiti art scrawled on the walls, French electro-punk ambiance and a gorgeous staff dressed in military styled uniforms.
Approaching the velvet ropes at Louis isn’t for the faint of heart, so dress you best, put your best foot forward, and maybe, just maybe the rope gods will smile upon you for a brief moment.
Louis’ main competition comes from the nearby Wall Lounge at the W South Beach hotel, which, of course, the Opium Group also has a hand in.
Louis is located on the entry level of the Gansevoort South Hotel at 2325 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, Florida, 33139. Phone: 305.531.4600
