Sitting on a throne of extravagance and glamour is the Japanese-style restaurant and lounge Queen Miami Beach. The new locale encompasses the landmark Paris Theater, which was reverently transformed by architect and interior designer Carlos Rodriguez of Escala Form in collaboration with designer Samy Chams.

“I recognized the need to preserve its Art Deco legacy while infusing fresh, modern elegance and allure,” Rodriguez says. Step through the lavish golden doors to meet a handcrafted mosaic from Italy, terrazzo floors and a midcentury brass chandelier from Kalmar Lighting. Follow a curving Art Deco-style passageway to The Salon Lounge, where exquisite Lobmeyr chandeliers—famously unveiled at the Metropolitan Opera House in 1966—steal the spotlight.

More magical surprises unfold in the main dining room: “One of the most awe-inspiring moments occurs as guests witness the LED-paneled dome ceiling,” Rodriguez notes. “This mesmerizing feature takes on a dynamic display, creating a truly unforgettable dining experience.”
