Opium Group’s New South Beach Venue
by Lauren Khalaf
The Opium Group adding yet another venue, Park Avenue Club (a restaurant, lounge and club) to Miami Beach’s growing nightlife scene.
This venue will be located on 2228 Park Avenue in the Collins Park area. If you’re familiar with the vicinity than you’ve certainly seen the four-story building, originally built in 2006. Distinguished architect, Chad Oppenheim, designed the 11,373 square foot building with a two story high open balcony, which starts on the third floor.
Park Avenue Club plans to take advantage of the floors by providing a restaurant on the first floor, a lounge on the second floor and a nightclub on the third. Rumor has it that the fourth floor will be removed in order to concept a two-story high nightclub. Half of the balcony will be enclosed while the other half will be open.
There’s no specific opening date for this butterfly and flower themed venue, although if it’s going to look anything like the butterfly and flower theme inside the Wynn, Las Vegas, we can’t wait.
Park Avenue was a hot spot in the 40’s, and it might be making a come back in South Beach.

Simply put, flying can be a stressful activity.
A lot of the time it begins with the airports: dizzying parking garages, overpriced food and a series of long lines have a way of making even the most serene travelers a little bit agitated. And that’s even before the airplane leaves the ground. So it’s easy to see how poor service from an airline can put the finishing touches on a ruined day — long check-in lines, flight delays, lost luggage, baggage fees and general rudeness have a way of doing that. Not to mention the scary food (at least it used to be free scary food).
Based on the Airline Quality Rating (AQR) Report, which covers 18 domestic carriers, here is a list of the airlines that could stand to do the most work on making their customers happy. The report’s conclusions are based on surveys of airline industry experts, with positive and negative values assigned to different elements in airline quality. Several common complaint areas were factored in — including on-time arrival, mishandled baggage, delays and involuntary denied boardings — the scores of which were then calculated to produce an overall quality score. We also took a look at a number of other sources, including the American Customer Satisfaction Index and the Air Travel Consumer Reports by the U.S. Department of Transportation. Regional airlines are ranked separately because of their tendency to score lower.
