A new perk for the wealthy, right in their own apartment buildings: resident-only restaurants and drinks on the house in private bars

  • Luxury apartments are rolling out fancy and resident-exclusive restaurants.
  • The Wall Street Journal reported that a recent crop of such eateries has sprung up in Miami.
  • Glitzy real estate offerings of the past have featured similar wild giveaways, like art galleries and trips to space.

Landlords occasionally attach a few perks to apartments or houses to sweeten the deal for buyers and attract new tenants.

Luxury residences are no different, in that regard. They just serve up more ostentatious giveaways.

Take private restaurants and bars, for instance. The Wall Street Journal reported on a number of fancy eateries that have cropped up in Miami. They’re all attached to a luxury residence. The Porsche Design Tower has Fuel, Palazzo Del Sol has the Café Sol, and the Oceana Bal Harbour has Ballerina.

You can’t just walk into these restaurants from off the street and snag a table. They are reserved for the people who live in these astronomically pricey skyscrapers. So if you even want to get a glimpse at the menu, you’d have to shell out millions for an apartment.

As one would expect, these exclusive eateries offer pretty sumptuous culinary experiences. At Ballerina, for instance, the Wall Street Journal reported that guests can get meals catered to their rooms. The restaurant also hosted a black truffle festival for the building.

It’s not just Miami, either. Residents of Boston’s Millennium Tower flock to the private restaurant Mina, while Chicagoans who live in the planned 1000M high-rise will be able to grab drinks at the Club 1000 when it opens in 2022. All drinks at Club 1000 will be on the house, too.

Swanky private restaurants aren’t the only perks that luxury residences have thrown out there to please residents and entice prospective buyers. Business Insider previously reported that a deal for an $US85 million penthouse apartment in New York City also included two tickets to space, a $US1 million yacht, a Hamptons vacation rental, two Rolls-Royce Phantoms, and a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster.

And previously, a luxury apartment Miami provided its residents with Tesla-driving chauffeurs, while another established a whole art gallery for tenants to peruse.
