St. Regis Traditions, Poolside
Starting on Oct. 13, guests at The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort can enjoy the famous poolside Champagne Evening Ritual daily at 5:30 p.m. This tradition, which dates back to the time of Napoleon Bonaparte, will be held outside to allow guests to bask in the Miami sunshine. The ceremony, which marks the transition between day and night, will be performed for guests to enjoy. Additionally, guests can indulge in champagne-inspired cocktails from the “Golden Hour” menu, created in partnership with Dom Perignon. Live DJ performances will also be available on Fridays and Saturdays in October, and from Thursday to Sunday in November from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
The resort’s Bloody Mary Masterclass is a unique offering at the resort’s adults-only Tranquility Pool Bar. This hands-on workshop takes place every Sunday at 11:30 a.m., starting from Oct. 8. The masterclass allows guests to learn how to make the resort’s Florida-inspired version of the traditional Bloody Mary, called the Bloody Sunrise and the iconic Red Snapper, which is credited to the flagship St. Regis New York. The workshop is organized before brunch, and guests are encouraged to complement their experience with a Greek-inspired brunch at Atlantikós.
The resort has introduced a mobile coconut cart that serves signature, engraved coconuts to guests lounging poolside at the Tranquility Pool. Available every Friday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., the cart offers surprise and delight moments to guests looking for an Insta-worthy experience.
