Hi guys! So i just got back from a 5 days break in Miami, and i totally recommend you to stay or visit the Eden Roc Hotel. Not only for the beautiful architecture but also to feel the spirit of one the oldest hotel in South Florida, created in 1955 and designed by Morris Lapidus. The name of this hotel might sounds familiar to the South of France lovers’ , not a coincidence because it originally come from the famous 5 star hotel Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes.

You will definitely enjoy the 4 swimming pools (party people: amazing pool parties on saturdays), the beautiful lobby , Elle spa, and restaurant but more importantely the amazing view on the beach. Also, you will enjoy maybe even more by knowing they filmed an episode of Scarface in this hotel or that Nat King Cole performed or -for the “gossipiest” one of you -that the Kardashians lived there for a long time when they were in Miami.
Hurry up, they have some very reasonnable deals at the moment!!
Check it up here, you’ll probably find good prices

If you didn’t already know, Woddy Allen is not just an (amazing) actor-comedian-screenwriter-director; he is also a jazz musician. A clarinetist, to be exact.
From joining the Preservation Hall Jazz Band to the New Orleans Funeral Ragtime Orchestra, to providing the film score for his 1973 film Sleeper, Allen has established himself as a solid fixture in the jazz scene. For this reason, The Carlyle Hotel calls upon him to play with the Eddy Davis New Orleans Jazz Band and wake the Café Carlyle’s atmosphere up, every monday night from the September 10 to the December 17 (all last nights are already full).
I had the pleasure to see Woddy and his Band two weeks ago and, to be honest, if you are not a fan, don’t go! He is a legend and he has marked the art world with his movies and his personality, not with his music… He is a real good musician but he is not a legendary Jazz man. Don’t expect to see his usual funnyman quips and antics. He is another man when he plays.
He just played his part, weaving and bobbing in his seat. When the clarinet didn’t have a part, he stared solemnly ahead. On the contrary, his band was very “Jazzy” like a real New Orleans Jazz Band supposes to be. They played only one hour: too short!
For the finale, Woody favored us with a smile and a little song sung by him and his banjo player: his way to say “I’m so happy to be here”…
Woody Allen is a well-known figure and you go to the Carlyle just to see him, not to hear him. This night ruined but, it was a great moment and seeing this cinema’s legend is a thing which doesn’t happen every day.
