We stayed in the Faena for a week in early January and arrived in the middle of a lashing rainstorm. Not realising this space was more a bar/performance lounge and desiring somewhere more relaxed than a sit down restaurant we booked here for our first night for dinner.

The menu was varied with a really nice selection of light bites (and while some were expensive there were also some reasonably priced options). I had the Ceviche was delicious; Sliders which were really good and a Cheese plate (amazing). The plate was also incredibly generous with large portions; some nice nuts & fruit as well as crackers (and decently priced at $18). I drank Prosecco (fine serving at $14) and Rose wine.

My husband had Coconut soup (he is a real soup person and declared this among the best he had tasted) and also Rigatoni (again a larger portion than expected and less than $20). He drank Red Tempranillo which was also good but expensive.

It was a Saturday night which we later realised was one of the craziest nights & the vibe was quite surreal with a lot of posing. Normally I really enjoy the people parade but on this occasion I found it too much (as we were trying to eat - and there was a tough seating policy - we found ourselves in the middle of a maelstrom and also having to advise all those who wished to sit at our table that they needed to be approved by the manager).

STUNNING room (gold palm tree curtains and tiger skin chairs; glass tables with gold birds holding them up). Very glamorous and OTT but quite beautiful in a dramatic Miami Beach way. Very Cool music but too loud

Despite a reservation - we were kept waiting for a while on arrival with 2 different members of staff seeming confused by our booking (which had been made by and with the hotel). This wasnt a nice 1st experience (especially as we had travelled all day and were really hungry) - but thereafter the service was superb and our waitress was both efficient and warm/charming. In summary - I would say it’s a great place for a drink and people watching BUT if you wish to eat (very good food) perhaps best to time your visit for a quieter non weekend night.

It was Expensive ($230 incl tip) for what was essentially supper. with 2 glasses of wine. but A real 'experience' and I would recommend.

The very attentive friendly waiting staff provided excellent advice on drinks in an atmosphere of sophistication and elegance.
We enjoyed our drinks listening to a very talented singer and musicians.
Well worth a visit - and a must if you dine at the Faeana Hotel.

I had high hopes for this place. I had heard so many great things.

As a preface, I lean toward places that have a simple, refined vibe. On the contrary, this spot is decked out in velvet and leopard. This matched the clothing of most of the guests as well.

The style of the place is not one that suited me, however if you prefer the ostentatious, you might enjoy this spot more.

On a positive note the drinks were nicely made and I enjoyed the live band.

The Library Lounge is a beautiful lounge that feels from another era. The room is elegant though with enough casual flair to make it a perfect spot to have a cocktail with friends. The comfortable sofas are adorned with leopard prints giving them a sexy look. It is a wonderful refuge from the hustle and bustle of Miami Beach. The cocktails while very pricy are superb - not sure I've had a better smelling or tasting drink than the rosewater concoction. The service is excellent and there is live entertainment in the evening. I would definitely come back.
