Arts & Culture

Creativity is in our DNA. Hyam Plutzik, father of The Betsy’s owner, Jonathan, was a three-time Pulitzer Prize finalist in poetry, and continues to inspire our love for literature today. We have hosted more than 1,000 artists in our Writers’ Room who often host meet & greets and readings in the Library. The Plutzik family personally curates the visual art exhibits with emphasis on photography from emerging and established artists. (Insider-tip – contact us about a private art docent tour.) Where art and literature end, music begins - take in nightly live jazz, chamber music performances and curated playlists that set the tone throughout your stay. The Betsy serves as the community’s artistic oasis, it’s the perfect place for both cocktails and culture.



From a Poetry Rail honoring local writers, in-room and property libraries — to literary festivals like O, Miami, The Betsy is a passionate believer in what words can achieve. 



Join us in the Lobby every night for live jazz and latin rhythms or take in a classical chamber music performance in the Library, there’s always time to catch a beat.



Our exhibits are accessible throughout the hotel 365 days a year. Every piece is hand-picked by Lesley Goldwasser, co-owner of The Betsy.



We regularly provide space for local organizations and groups to gather and discuss important topics affecting our community and beyond.
