Craft cocktails such as Sinatra’s preferred morning-after reviver, the Ramos Gin Fizz, will also be available. These items were inspired by a vintage menu found in the hotel archives; in the 1950’s, Fontainebleau offered this special Brunch with Frankie event on occasions when the crooner was in Miami, and guests ate it up.Fontainebleau is paying tribute to Sinatra as his storied history with the property runs deep. The legendary singer often performed to packed houses at Fontainebleau’s La Ronde nightclub, vacationed at the hotel and even filmed the movies A Hole in the Head, Tony Rome, and Lady in Cement on-property. Additionally, Sinatra broadcasted The Frank Sinatra Timex Show, ‘Welcome Home Elvis’, at the landmark hotel. Guests and visitors alike will have the opportunity to embrace a piece of Golden Era glamour with the authentic collection of offerings and events.
