The Estates at Acqualina, the new highly anticipated $1.8 billion ultra-luxury residential development in Sunny Isles Beach, will feature Villa Acqualina, a 50,000 SF residents-only amenity complex. The centerpiece of Villa Acqualina’s private entertainment level will be a two-story speakeasy outfitted with a series of tiered seating and dance platforms that spiral down to the main DJ booth. Mesmerizing video walls will illuminate the venue providing visual stimulation as guests enjoy craft cocktails and lively music. During the day, the glass encased venue will transform into a light installation, highlighting the inclusion of rare and lavish materials such as lacquered ebonized wood, and deep purple velvet, creating an energizing and intimate ambiance. There will also be a 30' long rare onyx bar, an intimate wine room for private dining, a cigar room, and 5,000 square feet of private ocean view lounge space. The swanky bar and lounge will be located upstairs where residents can mix and mingle and enjoy a classic cocktail or signature libation and then make their way down the cascading stairs to the speakeasy, where a DJ will be spinning all night long.
“It’s the perfect venue for celebrations of all kinds from anniversaries and birthday parties to weddings and bar mitzvahs,” said Jules Trump, developer. “As we have an international clientele, the speakeasy matches everyone’s wishes, dreams and style. It's for residents only so it’s a very special amenity not found in other residential projects. There will be incredible lighting from highly specialized lighting experts where the lighting will change colors with different settings to match the mood and feel of the event. It's multi-purpose where you can host events on the upper and lower levels, such as a reception with canapes and wine upstairs and the main event downstairs.”
Other amenities include a full-service spa, state-of-the-art fitness center, ice skating rink, bowling lanes, movie theater, Wall Street Trader's Club trading room, basketball court, soccer field, bocce court, dog park, FlowRider surf simulator, golf simulator, multiple infinity pools, a beachfront restaurant and a full-service beach club.
