In the Name of Love Bring your party of one to the Broken Hearts Club at The Living Room for a little flirting and a lot of fun. LIVE ENTERTAINMENT AT THE LIVING ROOM & THE SA XONY BAR THE LIVING ROOM NIGHTLY EVENING ACTS FROM 8:00PM •

February welcomes back some of our favorite live performers and DJs, including Sarah Packiam, American Gipsy, Javier Garcia, Florenza Campos, Yamit and the Vinyl Blvd, Mi Dulce Son, The Usual Suspects Ft.

Hearts on Fire at Faena Theater

THE SAXONY BAR Meet us on the dance floor at Saxony Bar this month with live sets by DJ Beto Giovannetti, Diego Harispe, Aliyo, YSL, and Chizzle, among others.

Spend a memorable night with your heart’s desire at a tantalizing showing of Samsara.

When the red velvet curtain rises on the beautiful Artemis and she dances her way towards transcendence, your excitement will swell with the rising crescendo of an electric violin while leather-clad aerial dancers whirl in tandem high above the crowd. Pulse-quickening vignettes are infused with elements of cirque nouveau, titillating costumes and dazzling projection mapping. Mixologists will set your “Hearts on Fire” with specially-mixed tequila libations as the chef serves up melt-in-your-mount Malbec braised short rib and toothsome desserts with hints of dulce de leche and bourbon pecan. Or dine on chilled champagne and caviar between showstopping renditions of legendary rock

ballads delivered by spirited starlets Yoli Mayor and Envee. Don’t be shy to share your love story when requested during the show—the most romantic tale of the evening will be gifted a lavish couple’s massage at Tierra Santa Healing House.

If face-to-face conversation is rattling your nerves, hop into one of the Love Connection phonebooths that are synced to call one another. You can chat up your crush over the airwaves before working up the courage to ask, or be asked, to dance. You may have come alone, but that doesn’t mean you have to go home alone.

Best of the Best: Los Fuegos

TOAST A VALENTINA It’s been said the fastest way to the heart is through the stomach. Visit Casa Faena for a Valentine’s Day feast that will satisfy you both. Hold your partner close and raise a glass to happiness with a craft Valentina cocktail, a sparkling combination of gin, strawberry lemon cordial and G.H. Mumm Brut. For starters, choose between beet salmon carpaccio with red caviar, avocado and horseradish dust or a watermelon and feta salad tossed with sorrel, toasted almonds and lime vinaigrette. The main event comes with three decidedly delicious options: a New York steak and dauphinoise potatoes lavished in a bourbon peppercorn sauce; Florida snapper with roasted corn salsa and jicama slaw; and last but not least, a polenta plank featuring mushroom and herb ragout. For the sweeter portion of the evening, the chef is serving up Greek yogurt mousse accompanied by strawberries, rose petals and coconut crumble, as well as a rich chocolate molten cake with vanilla ice cream and chocolate dust.

The nation’s top celebrity chefs are sharpening their knives and heading to Miami’s 18th annual South Beach Wine & Food Festival ®. Over 90 culinary events will be sating foodies across the city from February 20 through February 24. On Friday, February 22, chef Cristian Menendez (photo) will join a cohort of 60 critically-acclaimed chefs to represent Faena Hotel Miami Beach’s Los Fuegos restaurant at Wine Spectator's Best of the Best event held at Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel. During the grand walk-around affair, diners will be able to sample top-notch cuisine paired with notable wines including Los Fuegos’ classic asado dishes conceived by star chef Francis Mallmann perfectly paired with Faena private-label Malbec. The menu includes Argentine torta

For reservations please dial 305 604 8485 or visit OpenTable to book.

fritas and sweetbreads, as well as classic crispy countryside bread and slow-cooked New York strip steak smothered in chimichurri. Worldclass vinos are being poured by renowned winemakers, who will be sharing with guests how their wines make it from the vineyards to their discerning palates. The annual Wine Wall raffle is also back this year, giving oenophiles a chance to take the best-of-the-best wines home with them. If a flame-grilled feast is more your style, join us at the long table on Thursday, February 21 as Francis Mallmann cooks up a decadent asado buffet of meats, vegetables, seafood and more over his signature fire dome at Faena Hotel's pool and garden.

21 TAKE THE CAKE With swirling fondant roses and cakes dip-dyed in glistening gold leaf, Faena’s Executive Pastry Chef, Frederic Monnet, brings out the sweet side of Valentine’s Day. Through a pastiche of rich ingredients both traditional and unexpected, each decadent Monnet creation is one to savor at length. A lover of crafting intricate candies and chocolate truffles, the talented pastry chef opines on what’s Faena’s most romantic dessert: the dark chocolate cake with a hint of warm spice and fresh passion fruit. “You can have so many different experiences in just one bite!” says the chef. At Los Fuegos, guests can revel in a special holiday Dulce Lover’s tower—an indulgent mélange of flavors from orange Jivara profiterole to hazelnut tiramisu. Or for those whose love is sweet enough, there’s no sugar needed in the refreshing vegan coconut panna cotta with exotic fruit sorbet. “Our team is so passionate about what we do,” Monnet explains. “We strive to make every dish a memory.”

In-house guests may dial the Concierge at 4037 for more information.

Dinner for Two at Pao & Los Fuegos Dine with your lover this Valentine’s Day and enjoy pleasure in every bite. Wine and dine your heart's companion with signature menus crafted just for the day at Los Fuegos and Pao, two wholly unique destinations for the romantic holiday. At Los Fuegos, the gilded gleam of the Art Deco bar is enhanced by the softly glowing chandelier and mirrored walls that reflect the intimate jewel box of the dining room. Entice your palate with Francis Mallmann fare featuring a deft play of cool (raw seafood on copper) and hot (flame-licked tenderloin, scallops, and branzino). The decadent dessert tower is more than the sum of its parts, where the sultry contrast of sweet hazelnut tiramisu and a spicy chocolate macaron echo the dulcet notes of your romance. A life-size unicorn and abundant greenery

meet oceanside views at Pao, where edible passion unfurls throughout a four-step Valentine’s meal and the heady spices of Asian fusion dishes leave a trace of heat tingling on your lips. The cool touch of silky crème fraiche, coconut spice and cucumber elevates the humble fried chicken to surprising new heights. As the sumptuous lineup continues, rich brown butter and black truffle enliven every forkful of aged tenderloin bistek. Sweet as first love is the finale of lychee ice cream drizzled with warm chocolate espuma and quinoa lime crumble. In-house guests may dial the Concierge at 4037 for more information. Reservations can be made at 786 655 5600.

A petite powerhouse and fan-favorite at the South Beach Wine and Food Festival ®, the Rome-born and California-raised De Laurentiis studied at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and worked as a professional chef at several Los Angeles restaurants, including the Wolfgang Puck-owned Spago, before skyrocketing to fame on Food Network’s daytime cooking show, Everyday Italian.

Spring Festival Fever This month, Miami comes alive with festivals from a yacht-hopping International Boat Show and the Coconut Grove Arts Festival to the star-studded South Beach Wine and Food Festival. The party continues in March with Miami Music Week.

Drop anchor for a five-day event at the Miami Marine Stadium Park & Basin on Virginia Key. From February 14-18, boating enthusiasts from around the world have the chance to browse thousands of models from fishing boats to luxury yachts, shop the latest and greatest designs and test-drive a range of vessels in Miami’s open ocean.

In March, electronic music lovers will flock to the city for Miami Music Week from March 25-31. Over 1,200 artists are set to perform at a staggering 300 plus events at 85 venues across the city, featuring a lineup of top DJs and musicians who know how to please a crowd.

WINTER MUSIC CONFERENCE RETURNS TO FAENA FORUM The annual Winter Music Conference— a dance music industry staple spanning four decades—is returning to Faena Forum this March 25-28. Now operating under the umbrella of Ultra Worldwide, this year’s conference will showcase a fresh injection of edifying panels, keynote speakers and strategic partners. For the first time in its history, the conference will offer two segments: WMC Industry, with programming specifically designed for music professionals, and WMC Access, catering to music enthusiasts and amateur musicians who want to learn more about the dance music industry.

“After 34 years, we’ve reached a major point in the evolution of WMC,” said WMC co-founder Bill Kelly. “Attendees will experience cutting-edge mixers, mentorship moments, and endless opportunities to share up-to-the-minute technology in an exceptionally beautiful setting, the Faena District.”

Rockin’ and Rollin’ Faena Art will add a touch of disco to Miami’s popular III Points independent music festival this month with an artist-designed roller skating rink open to the public. The sixth annual III Points festival held at Mana Wynwood each year is known for creating a sensory party that combines music, art and technology, while blending a wide range of genres, everything from indie rock to neo soul and punk to electronica. “As a locally built and funded festival, our mission is to be a platform for our homegrown community of artists and bring likeminded bands to Miami who wouldn’t come otherwise,” said festival co-founder, David Sinopoli.

After the success of Faena Forum‘s Second Sunday series, which featured ángeles veloces arcanos fugaces, an immersive, participatory and site-specific art installation created by artist duo assume vivid astro focus (avaf) that reimagines the traditional roller dancing rink, Faena Art will bring the neo-disco rink to the three-day music festival. Designed as a hub to knit the community together, the rink will be free for festival goers and skates will be

provided. Live musical performances, DJ sets, roller dancing classes and a host of surrounding interactive art installations will add a vibrant dose of Faena-style to the festival.

For more information about Faena Art, visit www.faenaart.org For tickets & more information on the III Points festival, visit www.iiipoints.com

Sail your way right into the 55th annual edition of the Coconut Grove Arts Festival for a fun-filled President’s Day Weekend (Feb. 16-18. Set along a mile of Biscayne Bay’s scenic coastline, you can peruse the works of 360 international artists at alfresco stands showcasing a range of mediums from painting and photography to jewelry and metalwork. Gourmet vendors hawk delicious eats, while live music keeps the vibe upbeat at Peacock Park, and kids have their own fun in the Family Zone at Regatta Park. February finishes strong with the South Beach Wine & Food Festival from February 20-24. (See page 5 for more information on Faena events.) The five-day food frenzy is a smorgasbord of celebrity chefs, gastronomic experiences and top vinos to wash it all down.

The Faena Forum—a 15,000 squarefoot space featuring a pink marble amphitheater and 40-foot-high assembly halls with an oculus—serves as the perfect launch pad for WMC’s latest incarnation, and as an avant-garde congregation point for dance music’s most innovative artists, songwriters, DJs and producers.

FLAMING HEARTS

Forum of Love With little rain and fewer crowds, spring is the ideal time to tie the knot in Miami, and Faena Forum is the perfect stage. The late, great comedian Robin Williams once said, “Spring is nature’s way of saying, ‘Let’s party!’” And if there’s one thing Faena does best, it’s throw an over-the-top bash. Betrothed couples are drawn to Faena’s non-traditional spaces because they invite them to infuse their own unique styles and artistic

expression in venues as varied as a flower-laden altar on the beach, a rose marble amphitheater, or a 40,000-foot-high blank canvas at the Faena Forum to create their fairytale dreamscapes. “One high-profile wedding we recently hosted had a poolside event with a synchronized swimming perfor-

mance by the Aqualillies,” said Social Catering Director Susan Wesselhoft. Other couples hired a local circus troupe and aerialists from Faena’s Samsara Cabaret to spice up the after-party. Another outstanding feature: The District’s soundproofed spaces allow for exuberant affairs with no curfew. “We

once had a 400-person wedding with a full-piece band flown in from Paris that lasted 10 hours,” Wesselhoft exclaims. “The guests loved it!”

For more information on weddings and special events at Faena, please email events-miamibeach@ faena.com For Valentine’s Day, whisk your significant other away to Faena Miami Beach and enjoy a curated experience designed to fan the flames of your kindred heart. Slip away from the outside world and reconnect in an ocean-view love nest fit for royalty. Splash a collection of handcrafted essential oils from Tierra Santa Healing House in the soaking tub for a long, relaxing bath or indulge in an affectionate backrub from your amado. Dissolve your stress during a steamy hammam journey at the spa followed by a soothing massage. Treat yourselves to a wardrobe refresh with a personal styling appointment that will don you head-to-toe in handpicked styles from established and emerging designers featured at Faena Bazaar. Dressed to the nines, cash in your dining credit for dinner at one of our signature restaurants, Pao or Los Fuegos, before a late-night showing of Samsara Cabaret, a provocative new show at Faena Theater.

Isabel Pedemonte and Chipi Tornos are two friends who came together to design modern loungewear inspired by their beautiful seaside surroundings in Asturias, Spain. Each collection reflects a “brin de folie” stemming from their obsession with fabrics, prints and textures that translate into lightweight and versatile garments from kaftans and robes to nightgowns and lingerie. They strive to “envelop the woman who wears them in a world of reverie, sensuality, style and elegance,” the pair told Spanish newspaper, La Nueva España. Delicacy is the thread that connects all of their collections, crafting pieces with colorful patterns and feminine fabrics that adapt to the body like cotton mousselines, satin, silk and lace. At the end of the day, the designers are striving not only to create beautiful garments that “capture the glitter of the instants that have captivated us,” but a lifestyle for the modern woman. Perhaps the perfect accessory for a flowing kaftan is a pair of droplet diamond earrings or a sapphire ring from fine jewelry designer Graziela Kaufman. The Brazilian artist’s gemstone designs are a favorite among celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence, Taylor Swift, and Jennifer Lopez, and regularly grace the pages of high-style magazines like Harper’s Bazaar to Modern Luxury. Trained by her grandfather, Kaufman carries generations of know-how when it comes to handcrafting every piece and sourcing gems from all over Brazil. She has spent years traveling to mining towns throughout her native country to learn the fascinating history behind every stone, which has ultimately inspired the imaginative designs of her exalted creations.

Faena Bazaar—a modern incarnation of the ancient souk—is a treasure trove of well-loved, hard-to-find, and emerging designers. Here you’ll find one-of-a-kind items for your one-and-only love that have been created exclusively for Faena. Discover jewelry designer Kimberly McDonald's collection of inimitable constellation pendants, hand-painted loafers with Faena iconography by Alepel, and Elder Statesman's luxurious line of cashmeres only found at the Bazaar. Or, if you’re longing to add your own personal spin, many featured artists offer customization and personalization to make your gift even more meaningful. For a more collaborate gift experience, book a personal styling session, either in-room or at the Bazaar, where a team of experienced stylists curate personalized wardrobe edits based on individual preferences. With a complimentary glass of prosecco in hand, watch your loved one delight in playing dress up, knowing that together you’ll select the perfect gift.

LOVE YOUR SKIN BY DR. ROBERTA DEL CAMPO TIERRA SANTA HEALING HOUSE WELLNESS COLLABORATOR February is the month of love and that means its time to get your skin in tip-top shape. Here are some simple skincare tips to get your skin looking and feeling great for this special day. • Exfoliate both face and body, paying special attention to rough areas such as your feet, elbows, and knees. An exfoliator with small beads is gentler on the skin than a harsh scrub. Exfoliate 2-3 nights per week. For body, follow your exfoliation with a hydrating cream, preferably containing ceramides. My two favorites are Eucerin Intensive Repair and Cerave Moisturizing Cream. For the face, I absolutely love NIA24 Intensive Recovery for deep hydration and the Skin Strengthening Complex for a lighter feel or for those with oily or combination skin. • Use a hydrating hyaluronic acid serum to plump up your skin and a vitamin C fortified serum to add radiance. My personal favorite is my Dr. Roberta CE Ferrulic Serum which combines both. • Use an eye cream with hyaluronic acid and peptides. This will help to smooth fine lines and add a plumping effect. Say hello to smooth, rested appearing eyes.

Tierra Santa for Spa Lovers Love is in the air. Now’s the time to balance your heart chakra. Tierra Santa Healing House offers a flawless ambiance to honor Saint Valentine. “The spa itself and our monthly programs are designed to uplift the spirit, heal the emotional and physical body, and help guests connect to the highest level of existence,” said Spa Director Agustina Caminos. On Valentine’s Day, Caminos will lead a twin hearts meditation and purification ritual that will activate the heart and crown chakras, elevating each guests’ energetic vibration and leading them to release unwanted, stagnant energies. She will also focus on individual healing and fortifying the union of couples with a focus on divine love, harmony, tolerance, and gratitude. “This ceremony has an instantaneous effect on our closest relationships,” she says.

Marriage and family therapist Inessa Freylekhman will be helping guests manifest a soulful partnership this February 17, as well as offering guidance on how to transform their home into sanctuaries of sensuality and serenity using feng shui, an ancient Chinese practice that employs energy forces to harmonize individuals with their surrounding environments. Singles and couples who have other plans for Valentine’s Day can join Caminos for a full moon meditation on February 19. “True love starts with inner connection, inner healing and inner awareness,” she explains. “It’s important to love and accept ourselves first in order to have a clear idea of what we want and give ourselves fully to another person.”

In-house guests may dial Tierra Santa at 3217 to book. For more information and reservations, please email spamiami@faena.com or call +1 786 655 5570. FEB

My Funny Valentine

Faena Hotel Buenos Aires is throwing an out-of-this-world Valentine’s Day celebration where destiny has a hand. Treat the love of your life to an exquisite meal in the city’s most romantic dining room. Sitting under a row of snow-white unicorns, sample a specially crafted menu of gourmet creations that will delight your taste buds, from sweetbreads with Andalusian flair to fresh catch and lush veal tenderloin, followed by Malbec-soaked pears and chocolate fondant. Or enjoy an evening under the stars on El Mercado’s twinkling patio, dining on a bevy of succulent fare from lamb shoulder to seafood rice paired with glasses of full-bodied wines. If you’re planning to shoot cupid’s arrow, head to the candlelit Library Lounge and find your cosmic match over Golden Heart elixirs

mixed with gin, Tanqueray, Carpano Rosso vermouth, Chartreuse Jaune, and muddled herbs. DJ Chamorro is kicking off the dance party at 8:00pm, followed by a live performance from the band Still Rock + Flor Otero at 11:00pm. To heighten the intrigue, guests will receive complimentary tarot card readings that may steer them one step closer to finding a match made in heaven. Reservations can be made at +54 11 4010 9200 or at reservasuniverse@faenahotels.com. For more information on Faena Buenos Aires, visit www.faena.com/buenos-aires

• Lip care is a must! Use your favorite lip balm (I use Aquaphor nightly to keep my lips hydrated) and a simple trick for exfoliation is to use your toothbrush prior to application. • Don’t forget your hair. Shiny, healthy hair is a show stopper. Consider using a hydrating hair mask a couple days before Valentine’s Day followed by a light hair oil serum to keep your locks hydrated, strong and shiny. I am obsessed with Miracle Fruit Seed Hair Oil. It is a non-greasy, natural hair oil that doesn’t weigh hair down and makes your hair softer, smoother, shinier, silkier, stronger and more manageable. • Smile, smile, smile! We have all heard the saying “Happy girls (and boys) are the prettiest.” I couldn’t agree more.

To book a consultation with Dr. Del Campo, please email spamiami@faena. com or call 786 655 5570. In-house guests may dial Tierra Santa at 3217 for more information

Dine Under the Stars

Puerto Madero, one of the hottest barrios in Buenos Aires, draws foodies from near and far to enjoy the pleasures of dockside alfresco dining. As crowds stroll the waterside promenade, savor summer on El Mercado’s sun-dappled terrace. Sumptuous fired fare from Chef Emiliano Yulita infuses every bite with flavors pulled from the surrounds: prawns grilled to perfection and juicy grass-fed flank steak. At fine dining temple Bistro Sur, eclectic seasonal combinations invoke the feeling of summer indoors, where octopus and calamaretti are

paired with turnip purée and roasted green bell peppers, pink salmon brightens a traditional seafood paella, and a sweet potato and eggplant puree perfectly accents the lamb shoulder. Reservations can be made at +54 11 4010 9200 or at reservasuniverse@faenahotels.com. For more information on Faena Buenos Aires, visit www.faena.com/buenos-aires

Faena Rose is our art and culture-based private members club, which brings together a dynamic community of likeminded individuals through a robust, year-round calendar of the most engaging and transformative cultural experiences. This month, Faena Rose is thrilled to present a special evening with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, featuring a Q&A with Alvin Ailey's Artistic Director, Robert Battle, and choreographer & dancer, Jamar Roberts—both Miami natives—and performance excerpts by members of the Ailey company. Created exclusively for Faena Rose, the program will feature ballets by Alvin Ailey, Robert Battle, and Jamar Roberts in celebration of the Company's 60th anniversary. In

dizzying present day? Our present reality is one in which, like in any great crisis, the current gender revolution presents a splendid opportunity for reconfiguring our understanding of love between couples, and to take this as the point at which solidarity is the basis for understanding the differences and similarities which exist between two people. (Perhaps it’s the basis of love, too.) In any case, and in the face of a landscape as uncertain as any probable reality, the hope is that we never stop answering the call that emanates from the love between two people. Maya Angelou once condensed it thus: “Have enough courage to trust love one more time and always one more time.”

At present, the couple has suffered a metamorphosis heretofore unseen. It’s a transfiguration still difficult to fully understand, for its recency, and its constant mutation. The opening up of spaces for women’s development (so urgent and necessary) has undoubtedly had an essential effect on the ways in which both men and women communicate and are reached. These correspondences, the histories of which are as old as humanity, have already reached the point of no return, and that fact seems, at least, promising.

How do we recover, then, the essence of love, and its relationship with the divine in our own

At this point, it’s reasonable to ask how, in a time when we talk more about gender than of love, is it possible to recover the timeless, the spiritual, the transcendent, and even the magical, in that feeling. It’s love which has been since it was named one of the strengths and sources of the most valuable in everything we call “human.”

“The pleasure isn’t in owning the person. The pleasure is this. Having another contender in the room with you.” Philip Roth put it thus in the novel The Human Stain (2000). While reflecting a clear (and long-cherished) notion of fairness, it also denotes a relationship based on competition between the two, a dynamic familiar to millions of people. Perhaps the real revolution needs to approach the ideas of generosity, mutual understanding, and collaboration: toward a full understanding that men and women are also the same thing.

At a time when gender is spoken of more frequently than love, how can we reconfigure our understanding of the couple?

Our quest for equity will go down in history not only as a key moment in social and cultural evolution. It is also a call for a redefinition of what is (or should be) the feminine and the masculine. In a nutshell, we can speak of an irreversible transformation of the couple, but also of that which we call love itself.
