The Bazaar by Jose Andres – Miami Beach FL (preview)
Grand Opening early November
In the SLS South Beach 1701 Collins Avenue Miami Beach FL
Toured September 11, 2012
The Bazaar by Jose Andres is a very sophisticated mish-mash of elements. Unmatching table lamps, chairs and even sofas fill the two-story space and somehow it all works, and works well. The far side of the room has the serving kitchen which is a counter and back bar that runs the length of the room. In the middle of it all is the focal point of the room – a chandelier. This is not just any chandelier, this is a huge custom-made chandelier. It is the omnipresent element in the room, and my least favorite thing in the room actually. It reminds me of a seashell encrusted giant octopus, with its tentacles holding up traditional lampshades providing mood lighting for the space. Maybe the effect is different at night, but in any case I would not sit underneath it.
