A Tradition of Arts and Culture on Miami Beach

Nestled among the pastel-hued buildings of the Art Deco District,The Betsy is just minutes from the best of Miami’s cultural scene: The Bass Museum of Art, The Wolfsonian at Florida International University, Art Basel Miami Beach, and The Jewish Museum of Florida.

Watch Miami life play out amidst the backdrop of Little Havana, an authentic presentation of vibrant Hispanic culture in unique art galleries, restaurants, and music.  Venture out on Espanola Way where you’ll find a charming enclave of boutiques and restaurants, with the distinct feel of a quaint Spanish village. And within only ten minutes of Betsy, you’ll find the New World Center (NWC), a magnificent homage to music and the home to the New World Symphony.


The Writer's Room

Literature is the cornerstone of arts programming at The Betsy South Beach with a legacy rooted in the work of the late poet Hyam Plutzik (1911-1962), a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, and father of Chairman, Jonathan Plutzik. Each room at the hotel has a small library of poetry and other books, and a poetry bookmark is placed on each guest’s pillow every night.

The Writer’s Room is a further expression of our commitment to the arts. At the official opening event during National Poetry Month, April, 2012, Special guests included former United States Poet Laureate Billy Collins, New York University Creative Writing Professor Thomas Healy, FIU Creative Writing Chair Les Standiford, emerging NY-based poet Melissa Broder, MacArthur Award-winning poet Campbell McGrath, and O, Miami & University of Wynwood founder, P. Scott Cunningham. The purpose of the Writer’s Room is to create a very special place on South Beach for writers and other creative artists, where they can find the tranquility and inspiration needed to do their best work.

After its official opening in April 2012, the Writer’s Room has so far hosted numerous writers—poets, novelists, journalists, playwrights among them— during which these writers have presented readings of their work, published or in-progress. The Betsy Hotel makes the room available to visiting artists and writers working a wide variety of domains and disciplines, at many project stages, but with a hyper-focus on poets during final-stage efforts.

The Betsy is a South Beach hotel with a unique mission to foster community while providing a luxury hotel experience. Our principal vehicle for building community is programming in Philanthropy, Arts, and Culture.
