The Dalmar Hotel: modern spaces for relaxation and entertainment with a tropical twist

The Dalmar is a luxury hotel in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, with contemporary style interiors designed by DesignAgency

The Dalmar Hotel

The Dalmar hotel, set in Fort Lauderdale’s Flagler Village, Florida, is a relaxation oasis for its guests and an entertainment destination for the locals. The 25-storey building hosts 209 bedrooms and 5 food&beverage concepts: Rose’s Coffee Bar, The Terrace, Lobby Bar, Pool Bar and The Sparrow.

Rose’s Coffee Bar

Bars, cafés, restaurants

Rose’s Coffee Bar is at street level; it is a café by day and a drink and wine bar by night. Its walls are clad in wood and porcelain tiles with geometric decorations. 

Rose’s Coffee Bar

The bar counter is in white marble with brass details. In the center of this space are tall and rectangular tables used for quick breaks. For those who are staying longer, comfortable armchairs and sofas, both indoors and on the patio, are available. 

The Terrace Grill

The Rose’s Coffee Bar leads to The Terrace Grill bistro, open at lunchtime. It is furnished with turquoise and navy leather and velvet seats, and round marble tables with antique bronze edges. The bar area is characterized by oak panels topped with Calcutta marble. Connected to it is a metal shelving unit with small square and rectangular mirrors.

The heart of The Dalmar Hotel is on the sixth floor, where the reception desk and the Lobby Bar are located

The reception area

The sixth floor is the beating heart of the hotel, hosting the reception desk, the Lobby Bar and the Pool Bar. The reception area is large and bright, with walls clad in wood or quartz, enlivened by neon paintings by Canadian artist Thrush Holmes.

Behind the reception desks in white marble, large windows reveal the landscape. Natural elements and tropical details pleasantly contrast with contemporary furnishings.

Lobby Bar

While communal areas are full of energy, the bedrooms and suites of The Dalmar Hotel are intimate places with a delicate atmosphere, where you can relax. Light colors, neutral finishes, natural woods, leather furnishings, brass lamps and tables decorate the rooms.


DesignAgency, the interior design studio that created the interiors of the hotel, designed also the bar/restaurant on the 25th floor, The Sparrow, in collaboration with consulting company Proprietors LLC. The Sparrow, elegant and refined, recalls a ’70s style.
