La Vie en Rosa: Miami’s Newest Rooftop Restaurant and Lounge Imbues the Miami Nightlife its Vibrancy

by Kyandreia Jones

Who said that the sky’s the limit? 

This February, Tim Petrillo and Alan Roth will launch a new rooftop restaurant and lounge nightlife concept, Rosa Sky. Tim Petrillo is the Co-Founder and CEO of The Restaurant People (TRP). TRP is South Florida’s premier hospitality group credited with spearheading unforgettable venues such as YOLO, Boatyard, Rooftop @1WLO, S3 and Java & Jam. Petrillo joined forces with nightlife connoisseur and hospitality veteran Alan Roth to bring this new marvel to Miami. Rosa Sky will reside at the dual branded AC Hotel by Marriott and Element by Westin, developed by Robert Finvarb Companies and Tony Cho of Metro 1.

A3A8517Rosa Sky is the perfect new venue for those who know that when the “sky is pink, it is time for a drink.” Instead of retiring for the day when the sun goes down, Rosa Sky will provide guests with a place to enjoy themselves, enjoy the sunset, and enjoy the immaculate vibes of a day well spent. The 4,000 square foot rooftop bar and lounge will rest on the 22nd Floor of the all-new dual brand AC & Element Hotel Miami Downtown which is located near the bustling downtown Brickell neighborhood at 115 SW 8th Street, Miami, FL. It will serve as a wonderful place to conclude a day and thrive from the legacy of its creators. “The dynamic partnership between TRP and Alan Roth brings together an incredibly sought-after balance of creativity and unrivaled service which we can’t wait to welcome to the Miami market,” said Robert Finvarb, CEO, Robert Finvarb Companies. “A complement to our hotel’s brands and service level, and certainly to the exciting nightlife and culinary scene in Miami, Rosa Sky will be a must-see for all nightlife connoisseurs.”


The rooftop oasis is designed to provide gorgeous, serene views to give guests a break from the blinding, dreary city lights to which they are painfully accustomed. Rosa Sky will captivate with its allure of an idyllic nightlife atmosphere where guests can feel like they’re on Cloud 9 as they drink, enjoy the sights, and savor shareable appetizers and delectable dishes. Above the worries of the ground below, guests can also clink glasses with creative cocktails and drink and dine to the  beat of featured DJs and music talent reminiscent of Miami’s inimitable magic. 


“Rosa Sky will be a true fusion of Miami’s iconic sunsets over the waters and vibrant nightlife scene,” said Roth. “From sun-down happy hours, to waiting for the stars to rise nights there’s a level of entertainment for all to enjoy, and infatuation to be had with Rosa Sky.” 

A3A8805Rosa Sky’s unique venue is as extravagant and captivating as a sunset itself. The great care with which its superior aesthetic was achieved shows in the illuminations of accent fixtures, planters swathed in neon lights, textured walls brightened by rotating vibrant lighting, and perfectly complementary décor. The entire aesthetic and atmosphere reflect the magnificence of the afternoon sky changing from its honey-colored hue to the inky passion of later evening. The vision of Rosa Sky charms even from beneath a hand-crafted cocktail. The bar casts a luminous glow that dazzles rather than distracts. The ceiling showcases a digital map of curated light choreography. The venue’s electric vibe thrives off the constant jolts of energy, color, and movement gained from its lightshow. Music from a variety of featured artists and unique lineups afford guests the same motivation to get off their feet and embrace the infectious beat. Guests can expect artist line-ups such as that of a talented and fierce all-female DJ collective. 

Rosa Sky has every intention of igniting Miami’s nightlife with its eye-catching aesthetic, mood-boosting music, enchanting nightlife and mouth-watering culinary creations. “In true TRP fashion, our innovative culinary team has derived a menu that is as exciting as the venue itself,” said Petrillo. “Cocktails offer bold flavor and bright garnish, and dining options offer inventive combinations of local flair and unique tastes. All presented with the highest level of service culture from a team of dedicated staff, and set to one of the most colorful backdrops in the nightlife industry. Rosa Sky is the perfect melding of scene and substance.” 

Rosa Sky will offer a variety of drinks such as “The Rosa Sky” which guests can order by the glass or in a shareable style that serves four. “The Rosa Sky” is made with Grey Goose Strawberry Lemongrass, citrus and sparkling rosé. The delicious concoction is poured over signature rose shaped ice cubes and into a martini glass. There are also cocktails like the “Golden Hour” which is made with Aperol, grapefruit and the all-new Calirosa Blanco Tequila. Presented by entertainer Adam Levine, the Calirosa Blanco Tequila is a premium tequila that is a fusion of Mexican spirit and California style. There is also another drink called, “the Violet Views,” that has Kettle One Vodka, crème de violet, blackberry and sage. In addition to wonderfully curated and aptly themed drinks, Rosa Sky will offer dishes inspired by local delicacies such as Cuban “Cigars”. The shareable “Cigars” have a crispy shell, jamon, lechon, queso, pickle relish, mustard aioli and scallion ash or the Tiradito of Tuna Aji Amarillo with guanabana and sweet potato. 

After it opens this February, Rosa Sky will welcome guests Wednesday through Saturday from 4:30 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. and Sunday from 4:30 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. For more information about Rosa Sky, please visit www.rosaskyrooftop.com.
