Dolce Italian Opens Friday at Gale Hotel: We Get a Taste

Back in the 1941, architect L. Murray Dixon designed two art deco hotels, the Regent and the Gale. The two were joined by bridge in the 1960s, and recently, a $35 million remodeling was completed.

Now The Gale is a retro-class-meets-modern-elegance boutique hotel situated on a quaint but busy corner off Collins and 17th. The Italian Riviera-influenced design called for an in-house Italian eatery, which is being answered by Dolce Italian, which is set to open Friday, January 18.
