Originally built in 1939, Townhouse Hotel first gained its notoriety for its laid-back resort environment, paired with a high-energy crowd and a breathtaking rooftop featuring sprawling views of the ocean and downtown Miami Beach. One of the first of its kind, Townhouse Hotel introduced the indulgent rooftop nightlife experience to the South Beach community, establishing one of the most coveted hot spots in the city and crafting a dynamic and vibrant destination.

With its contemporary design by Parisian designer, India Mahdavi, the property mixes stylish interiors and an Art Deco hotel front façade, creating an immersive, but approachable and relaxed experience for its guests. sbe will bring their renowned reputation as a leading hospitality company to curate guest experiences that combine the comfort and service Townhouse is known for, while imaginatively introducing new concepts bringing Townhouse back to its most renowned days as a South Beach staple.

Elevating the food & beverage experience, sbe will introduce environments that are stimulating and culturally representative of the Miami playground the property inhabits. Once an incubator of the most exclusive restaurants in South Beach, Townhouse Hotel will become home to sbe’s newest culinary concept, K Ramen. Burger. Beer., as the official first location following its successful pop-up debut in Glendale, California. K Ramen. Burger. Beer., an extension of the globally recognized Katsuya restaurant brand, blends minimalistic, yet comfortable design and skillfully-executed Japanese cuisine to create a vibrant and fresh vibe with an exceptionally refined menu, making it approachable in both concept and price point.

As its name suggests, K Ramen’s culinary offerings include a variety of ramen dishes such as the Lobster Ramen, with golden chives, green onion and marinated egg; the eponymous half-pound burger, topped with secret spicy mayo, caramelized onion and tomato; and an extensive selection of Japanese brews. Rounding out the menu is a selection of pokes served over aonori sesame rice, including the Spicy Creamy Tuna “K Poke” and Snapper & Kale in Yuzu Ginger Sauce; and small bites including Calamari with Wasabi Cocktail Sauce and Tater Tots with Duck Fat Drizzle. For sweet treats, K Ramen serves up Coolhaus™ Ice Cream by the pint, to be enjoyed at the restaurant or while outside exploring South Beach.

In addition to the restaurant, guests can expect a roll out of a lobby lounge and rooftop lounge, featuring masterful mixology, gourmet bites and unrivaled views of South Beach and downtown Miami, all with the infamous prestige and excellence sbe is known for. The impeccable rooftop views serve as the perfect backdrop for private functions, events and social gatherings.
