Roberto Cavalli's Miami restaurant to open in November

First published: 16-10-2013

Not happy with just designing great watches, clothing and homeware, Roberto Cavalli has revealed plans to open a new restaurant.

The fashion guru has revealed details of the Cavalli Restaurant and Lounge on his blog.

Based at Miami Beach on the infamous Ocean Drive, the two-floor Art Deco Villa boasts the largest terrace in the area and is - naturally - predicted to become a celebrity and socialite hotspot.

The interiors already boast everything you might associate with the Italian designer - jaguar and zebra-printed fabrics, pillows and wallpapers. Handily enough, all of them are from the Roberto Cavalli Home range.

Writing on his blog, Cavalli said: "I wanted to create an environment offering all the hospitality typical of Casa Cavalli … a place where you can dine and entertain in pleasant conversation with your friends over a garish Mojito on the largest outdoor terrace of South Beach."  

So why Miami Beach? Cavalli has said that the area's Art Deco buildings have always intrigued him, while the "Latin-Carribbean-Cosmopolitan atmosphere" also makes it an interesting and unique place to hang out.

The designer points out that the scents and colours of Miami Beach are also a "continuous source of inspiration."

He's also admitted to not working on the layout and planning of the building along - teaming up with Italian architect Italo Rota.

It's due to open on November 15th, with the menu offering a mix of Tuscan and other Italian dishes.

Cavalli has already promised a big knees up at his place, too - saying he'll be organising a party to coincide with his visit to that part of the world for the annual Art Basel exhibition in December.

If you love Roberto Cavalli's style and designs, there is a fantastic selection of Just Cavalli watches to browse through at Watch Shop.
