When one thinks of Golden Era Miami Beach during 1950s and ‘60s, visions of Frank Sinatra and The Rat Pack at the Fontainebleau come to mind. The legendary hotel that owes so much of its glamor and mystique to Ol’ Blue Eyes will celebrate the singer’s centennial birthday starting September 2 with a 100 day countdown to his 100th birthday.
The crooner who once performed to packed houses at Fontainebleau’s La Ronde nightclub (now LIV), vacationed at the hotel and filmed movies A Hole in the Head, Tony Rome, and Lady in Cement there. He broadcast the 1960 Frank Sinatra Timex TV Show, ‘Welcome Home Elvis’ when Presley returned home from the US Army.
To celebrate, a nightly toast of Jack Daniel’s Sinatra Select whiskey will take place at Bleau Bar each evening during the 100-day countdown. Diners can look forward to 1950s-inspired ‘Brunch with Frank’ menus, specialty cocktails and themed intimate dinners. There will also be a never-before-seen photo exhibit curated by 1966 Americas featuring fine art prints of the singer.
“Frank Sinatra represents a very special time in Fontainebleau’s history, and we look forward to celebrating his life and the legacy he left behind,” said Philip Goldfarb, President and Chief Operating Officer. “Fontainebleau’s celebration will take place property-wide, offering guests the unique opportunity to experience his music, his passions and his style in a completely modern way.”
For overnight guests, the ‘Live Like Frank’ package hotel will offer a Sinatra-inspired experience, including:
- Two-night stay in a junior suite or above
- Vintage Fontainebleau canvas bag
- Fontainebleau Luxury Art Book
- One bottle of Jack Daniel’s Sinatra Select
- Daily breakfast for two
- Two 50-minute ‘Fly Me To The Moon’ massages at Lapis Spa
- $250 credit for dinner for two at one of four signature restaurants

The two night package rate is $1,915, commemorating the year Sinatra was born. For more information and to book, click here or call 877-512-8002.
