this hotel is probably the most famous site in miami beach. built after WWII it was the premiere entertainment venue of the 1950's and 1960's. the fontainebleau showcased the famous stars of that era like frank sinatra, joey bishop, dean martin, etc. the fontainebleau bar, the boom-boom room, became famous because of the televison show "surf side 6". the fontainebeau has been renovated several times over the years and is now a first class resort hotel. the famous entertainment venues of miami beach like the castaways, the starlight room at the doral and the rooney plaza are all gone. one of the few sites of old miami beach that still exists.
