Hg2 : The Hedonist


A stunning vision in a Floridian combination of pastel yellow and white, the Filarmonia building looks like a giant, edible fondant fancy. The Filarmonia was originally built back in 1910 as a casino and modelled on the great gambling houses of Monte Carlo. The story goes that it was modelled after a design, sketched with a cigar stub in a moment of inspired genius by the suitably hedo-nistic-sounding architect. Impressively renovated back in 2004, The Filarmonia Society puts on an impressive array of classical concerts in the indoor main hall, the smaller rotunda in the park and on the impressive outdoor stage (which rumour has it was built facing the mansion that now houses the Mustafayev Museum after a hefty bribe from that building’s then owner).
