When Rouge opened in November 2011, the owner didn't hold back the spirit of sensory overload that defines his latest creation. As guests filed into the grand-opening bash, a white tiger prowled in its pen, a multicultural ensemble of percussionists set pulses racing, and aerialists and fire-dancers sashayed and spun, resembling licks of flame themselves in crimson outfits chosen to match the interior. Amid the circus atmosphere, Leslie Gray of the Palm Beach Post also found space to happily notice the "canneloni, Brie and other delights, including the view."
On any average evening, diners might not find feline predators stalking the entrance, but they may well take in burlesque shows, performance art, and jazz trios as they spear thoughtfully accented bites of fish, steak, and creamy desserts from around the world. Seafood offerings range from appetizers of smoked scallops and tuna tartar to entrees of seafood pot pie and Scottish salmon. The restaurant's designers cultivate elegance but not formality, resulting in the kind of aesthetic that leaves the ductwork exposed but covered in white paint and hung with rococo candelabras. Crystals wink from padded walls, echoing the glint of cocktails being shaken at the bar. Outdoors, a waterfront patio finds patrons feasting on romantic dinners, toasting during champagne brunches, and napping between the two.
The two founders of Aquachild Swim School—Scott Launer and Brian Lilburn—came to embrace aquatic education through disparate means. When Scott took his then 2-year-old daughter, Jaya, to swim lessons, he was amazed to see 10-month-old babies floating on their own and began his journey to becoming a youth swim instructor. Brian, who nearly drowned in a backyard pool as a toddler, learned to love the water rather than fear it after his mom enrolled him in swim lessons. Scotty and Brian now share their life-saving knowledge alongside a staff of instructors that are all certified in water safety, first aid, and CPR.
Through Aquachild Swim School’s specially designed lessons, infants as young as 10 months learn to roll from facedown positions to back floats where they can breathe easily, and 1-year-old students begin to swim with their heads down, then twist onto their backs for air. As kids progress, they learn the four major strokes (front crawl, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly), brush up on the basics to keep them confident, or start snorkeling. The instructors lead adult lessons to help older students learn how to paddle at pool parties or triumphantly retrieve their boss’s golf ball from a green’s lagoon during corporate outings.
Stephen Smith, the literal wizard behind the figurative curtain at Planet Beach Contempo Spa, has developed a variety of efficient, self-guided treatments that beautify skin or relieve stress at the touch of a button. Patrons can pay an affordable monthly membership fee at four Miami-area locations to access the automated services, which include sunless spray tans, traditional or high-pressure UV tanning, and full-body hydration treatments that nourish skin and can extend the life of a tan. The Luminous facial device has been designed to fight signs of aging with light therapy, and several types of massage beds melt away stress.
Guests pay an additional fee only for the products that correspond to the services they want. A sauna-suit purchase is required for the infrared sauna, and teeth-whitening treatments require a mouth guard that can be used for games of full-contact horseshoes.
The intricately designed, European-style buildings that populate the Buenos Aires cityscape enchanted the eyes of Argentina native Cari Cohen at an early age, inspiring her to earn a degree in architecture from the University of Buenos Aires. Driven to push the boundaries of architectural innovation, Cari began delving into other creative media to expand her horizons, sparking a newfound fascination with abstract art and jewelry crafting. She has since moved to Miami, where her original paintings have been showcased at events such as Art Basel and Art Miami.
Cari founded The Fun Palette as a way to share her passion for the visual arts with kids and adults, hosting a variety of imagination-spurring classes for students of all skill and experience levels. During the studio's painting sessions, students can closely follow their instructor's step-by-step instructions to create flowing landscapes or abstract pieces or go off the beaten path to compose self-portraits that reimagine the painter as a bowl of fruit.
