Bal Harbour

Like Miami, a bustling, its wonderful enclave of Bal Harbour has turned into an ideal place to live, work and relax. Every season here is marked by its innovations, attracting different generations and forcing even locals to skip an evening in South Beach for an evening in Bal Harbour.

About Bal Harbour

Bal Harbour Village celebrated its 75th anniversary in 2021. During this short time, this inaccessible swampy plot of land, used during World War II only as a training ground for US Air Force fighters, is rapidly turning into a luxury resort with residential buildings, hotels, restaurants and shops for every taste, located on a relatively small area of one square mile between the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay.

This Miami Beach quarter is built up according to the standards of the Sim City game: there are residential quarters, here are parks and beaches for their inhabitants, and in between there is a huge shopping mall that performs, if we continue analogies with computer games, the role of a town hall, a market square and a tavern at the same time, where the brave hero will receive amazing tasks. Peace and quiet, the whole place can be walked from one end to another in a little over an hour. Only elite Bal Harbour condos and hotels are here; the whole area is a respectable place.

Bal Harbor atmosphere

Those who have not been to Bal Harbour for a long time or heard about its popularity from their grandmothers will immediately notice the dramatic changes. Here you can sit with a glass of wine in the yacht–like bar of The Grill at Bal Harbour restaurant, order dishes from the tasting menu at Stephen Starr's Makoto restaurant, attend a lecture organized by the Unscripted art project of the resort.

The reason why people return here from year to year for buying a home or on vacation is not only the best-in-class brands such as St. Regis, Ritz-Carlton and Bal Harbour Shops with department stores Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue, but also the extremely convenient location of this beautiful corner surrounded by turquoise waters of the Atlantic with palm trees and beaches on the northern tip of Miami Beach. The trip from Bal Harbor, equidistant from Fort Lauderdale and Miami, to the center of these cities and their international airports, takes no more than half an hour. 

Must Visit Places

There are a lot of Cuban and Mexican eateries in Bal Harbor. Noisy, stormy, incomprehensible. With wooden bar counters, thoroughly soaked with lime juice, tequila and rum. But, having grasped the whole essence of tropical fun, do not forget to go to the snow-white cube of the shopping center overgrown with tropical greenery, hiding the best restaurants in the area.

One of the best is Le Zoo. It seems that you immediately understand everything by the entourage: round tables, wooden panels on the walls, glass panels under the ceiling with cherished French words: vins, fromages, huîtres — wines, cheeses, oysters. And what else do we need. But the lush southern vegetation, huge fan blades, noisily dispersing the spicy tropical air — we are more in French Polynesia than in Montmartre. By the way, annual Haute Cuisine Festival is held in Bal Harbor. It is an incredible five–day journey into the world of haute cuisine. Usually only world-renowned chefs, with Michelin stars, perform 4 dinners and 16 interactive cooking classes.

Bal Harbor property for sale

Locals feel happy all year round, because the beach and Bal Harbour Shops are in their yard. The real estate market is on the rise, as evidenced by the appearance of the Oceana Bal Harbour complex at the end of 2016. Its developer Eduardo Constantini assembled a dream team: Arquitectonica erected the building, Piero Lissoni created the interior, and Enzo Enea created the landscape. An avid collector who founded the Latin American Museum of Art in Buenos Aires, Costantini acquired ownership of two street sculptures by Jeff Koons. Unsurprisingly, the average cost per square foot in a 28-story tower for 240 apartments was $2,000. Stephen Starr's restaurant, cinema and tennis courts add to the attractiveness of the condominium.

Resort hotels

The stunning Bal Harbour Resort hotels make you regret leaving. The new buildings are perfectly combined with such historical buildings as the 220-room Sea View Hotel, which arose in the 1940s during the first construction boom in Bal Harbour Village.

St. Regis brought its five-star service to Bal Harbor in 2012. There are three towers in his new complex: two have apartments, and the third has a 216–room hotel with interiors from the Canadian firm Yabu Pushelberg. In 2016, the hotel invested $35 million in its landscaping and the creation of a new category of penthouse suites, now you can rent the largest suite on the East coast of the United States with an area of 7,500 square feet, combining two branded suites with 4 bedrooms.

In the fall of 2016, the debut of the restaurant Atlantikós took place, which will allow visitors to taste the cuisine of the Greek islands. St. Regis Bar & Sushi Lounge offers lychee martinis and spicy tuna tacos, BH Burger Bar is known for its signature burgers with foie gras and black truffle.
