The South Beach Group’s new Riviera South Beach Hotel opened last week with 160 rooms and commissioned artwork from graffiti artist Banksy.

His art has been turned into tiles that line bathrooms and stairwells at 2000 Liberty Avenue Miami Beach. Hotelier Nathan Lieberman also hired Cuban musician Jorge Moreno as co-proprietor of in-house restaurant Morena’s Cuba, the Miami New Times reported.

Amenities include a rooftop deck with a pool and a bar, and a ground-floor pool with cabanas. [Miami New Times and Curbed]Mark Maurer
