Getting to experience the works of a master in a private setting is always special for art lovers. Having an intimate dinner surrounded by famous pieces? Well, that is a rare treat. But The Confidante Miami Beach is making that possible with its new "Dinner with Dalí" offering.
The luxury retro-glam hotel is home to Miami's first Salvador Dalí sculpture exhibit—dubbed "The Real Surreal 2.0"—that features new pieces by the legend, including rare modern print works as well as paper and bronze sculptures. While visitors can check out pieces like Alice In Wonderland, Horse Saddled with Time, and Lady Godiva with Butterflies on the weekend, the exhibit is closed during the weekday evening hours for the private dinner.

Over three hours, you and up to nine of your friends will be seated inside the hotel's actual Dalí exhibit. A private waiter will serve a curated Dalí-inspired tasting menu from the hotel's new restaurant, Ambersweet. Papas bravas, seared sea scallops, and chef's dessert choice are all included, and a complimentary welcome rosé toast, two signature cocktails with a Dalí theme. To top it off, you will get a private guided tour of the exhibit.
"The Real Surreal 2.0" was curated by famous Miami-based art dealer Marcel Katz—aka The Art Plug—and is the hotel's latest exhibition that features a rotating art collection with custom pieces by local artists. To honor the newest art collection, the hotel is offering several experiences beyond the private dinner. Works will be displayed in some pool cabanas, private tours for at-risk youth organizations are available, and Dalí-inspired cocktails (like The Katz Mule and The Da11í) and bites are available.
The exhibit will be on display until April 25, 2021 and the dinner costs $3,000.
