Designed with a multi-million interior by French designer Francois Frossard – behind the recent redesign of iconic club Queen Paris – ORA was opened by a group of Miami Beach nightlife veterans. As nightlife of late has crossed the bridge to downtown Miami, ORA fills a void in the market, bringing glamour back to South Beach with eclectic experiences and world-class hospitality. Featuring all the glamour and service of the grand, old-world hotels, mixed with the bold modernity of nightlife today, ORA starts the night at 10pm catering to the after-dinner set, and progresses into the night.
Helmed by hospitality tastemakers Ryan Van Milligen, Dana Dwyer, Yani Kontos and Greg See, personalized service will be different here, whether you are stopping by the bar for a craft cocktail or spending the evening at VIP table. Be greeted at your car by an ORA Concierge, have your martini hand shaken at your table, and dance amongst friends beneath an authentic Banksy or Murakami in the most decadent and authentic setting. The soundtrack will feature happy house, rock and pop, with a rotating series of visiting DJs who play tracks you know the words to.
Taking inspiration from nightlife’s most beloved venues, history’s greatest nightlife moments – from a 1960’s Elizabeth Taylor sipping champagne at the Casino de Monte Carlo to Brigitte Bardot smoking cigarettes on the bar of the Zoom-Zoom Nightclub in St. Tropez come to life at ORA where they are modernized for South Beach today. ORA welcomes champagne-swillers, gypsy spirits, Black Card holders, Lanvin ballerinas, tequila shooters, those who know the difference between a flute and a coupe glass, and those who prefer to drink from the bottle.
The interior design is lavish and dramatic featuring a cathedral ceiling. With 10,000 square feet of sleek sofas and modern table settings, alongside of touches of old European charm such as classic crystal glassware and boiserie paneling, ORA is undeniably luxe. The one-of-a-kind kinetic motorized diamond-paneled ceiling moves alongside state of the art intelligent lighting, state of the art audio/visual systems, and the warm colors and dark woods harken back to your favorite watering hole.
Take the staircase to the top floor and behold The Anti-Social Room – a world away with a funky, downtown soundtrack and an extensive menu with eclectic take on classic cocktails with white glove service and thoughtful presentations. Featuring mismatched furnishings like velvet sofas and deep leather wing chairs, matched with sleek low cocktail tables, and boiserie paneled doors, this candlelit space lends to casual conversations and forbidden liaisons.
