Wednesday Cocktail Hour at the National Hotel Miami Beach

In honor of its recent $12M dollar renovation, the contemporary yet elegant National Hotel Miami Beach is launching a bi-monthly “Wednesday Cocktail Hour” starting July 16th-August 27th at 6pm in the hotel’s sophisticated Blues Bar. The Bar will feature live Jazz/Blues music, vintage cocktails at vintage prices, and complimentary appetizers all within a retro, Art Deco-style ambiance. Perfect for after-work cocktails, or a night-cap for visitors staying at the hotel.

Merceds-Benz Fashion Week Swim

Fashionistas will be thrilled to learn that the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami Beach is just a few days away – happening July 17-21 at the Raleigh Hotel. Designers such as BCBGeneration, Oakley, Roxy, up-and-coming designer Pooja Kharbanda, and much, much more. Of course, along with this prestigious fashion event comes exclusive clubs and parties and trendy eateries and venues, all packed full of writers, models, editors, photographers, and designers. The Raleigh Hotel will be flowing with champagne, stylish show-goers, industry gossip, and designer tents, all centered around the hotel’s stunning art-deco pool, which Life Magazine named the “most beautiful pool in America” in 1947. While most events are by invite-only, there are a few open to the public. Last year, Sagamore Hotel offered free makeup by Bobbi Brown and hosted a pool party that provided snow cones. SLS South Beach featured a showcase of young designers known as the Peroni Emerging Designer Series. While, the hip hostel Freehand Miami has a pool and bar open to the public and have been known to host parties during Swim Week. For late night fun, look for the chicest clubs/bars with the best DJs – they tend to consist of parties hosted by designer brands and are overflowing with swimsuit models.
