Venue Features
The Scene:
The Betsy anchors the quiet end of iconic Ocean Drive — and has one of the most exciting neighborhoods in America as its backyard. Inside, you’ll discover everything you’d expect from a luxury boutique hotel — thoughtful amenities, extraordinary service, a storied chef guiding the kitchens— and some things you might not, like a beloved gathering place for arts and culture, a curated events program ranging from yoga classes to live music, a royal welcome for four-legged friends, and the individual attention of a family-owned hotel. The Betsy is a place of inspiration, discovery, and elevated comfort, where events become one-of-a-kind experiences.

With stunning indoor and outdoor venues boasting over 25,000 sq.ft., The Betsy is a perfect destination for corporate events, groups and conferences, as well as weddings and other social functions ranging from 10 - 1,500 guests. Let us make your occasion memorable with the help of our experienced events and culinary teams. 

 
 
Design:
Our history doubles as the story of Miami Beach — and a little bit of the country’s. Ocean Drive’s only surviving example of Florida-Georgian architecture, The Betsy was built by Art Deco pioneer L. Murray Dixon in 1942. In 2017, The Betsy completed a pivotal expansion, connecting The Betsy to the former Carlton Hotel, designed by Henry Hohauser, a fellow Art Deco pioneer. An architectural marvel, the two buildings are joined by an orb-shaped sky bridge already being celebrated as an important piece of Miami Beach public art. From sun-splashed outdoor locations to cozy private dining rooms, to the sultry glamour of a modern-day subterranean speakeasy, for every type of event, there’s a magical, thoroughly memorable venue at The Betsy. 
 
Standout Venue Features:
When you book your wedding at The Betsy, you can expect a highly customized experience from start to finish. Whether you’d like a signature cocktail for the crowd, a raw oyster bar, or a dessert station, we’ll personalize your day down to the last detail.
 
Extra Perks:
Standard linen, chairs and table tentals are included in the venue fee.
