F.P Journe has opened its newest retail space at the Epic Hotel in downtown Miami.
The two-story glass atrium is open to the public and is accessed via the lobby of the hotel.
Overlooking the Miami river and the rest of the city, the brand will share the space with Bar Journe, a fine and rare spirits bar partnered with Spanish luxury yacht manufacturer Astondoa and Petrossian Caviar, both family-owned entities like the watch manufacturer.
François-Paul Journe, president, commented: “We are thrilled to announce the opening of Maison F.P.Journe at the EPIC Hotel in the heart of downtown Miami. It is an honor to be partnering with brands who share the same values as we do; entities that are family-owned and highly passionate in their respective crafts. We are excited to offer the finest bar and lounge experience to watch enthusiasts and connoisseurs.”
He added: “What sets us apart from other horology brands is that we’ve taken retail experience to another level by creating what no other watchmaker has done yet, and that is to bring a one-of-a-kind destination combined with a heightened beverage experience to the city of Miami. We are confident that it will be a great success and hope to become the number one place to gather in the luxury world.”
The firm went on to confirm that individual and corporate memberships will also be available at Bar Journe.
Jennifer Massolo, founder of The Liquid Projects and creator of Bar Journe said: “Bar Journe is a dream project for me where I developed a concept that emulates the level of quality and exclusivity of the F.P.Journe timepieces and brand.”
