A Night at Sugar

Monday, May 30th, 2016

2-WRE_3528_new

Miami, FL – May 21, 2016 – Saturday night was more of an intimate party for the official opening of EAST, Miami’s Sugar – an Asian inspired 40th floor rooftop bar and garden. Locals and friends enjoyed an extended evening of libations under the stars, complemented with savory shared bites from Sugar. As the night transitioned,  EAST, Miami’s General Manager, Laurent Fraticelli relocated guests to the 39th floor to view the unveiling of the hotel’s grand staircase mural, designed by famed local artist, Alexander Mijares. As art is an integral part of the hotel’s DNA, Fraticelli said he chose Mijares because he exemplifies Miami and  he wanted something to reflect its culture; “to create something that pops with subliminal tones and designs.” Mijares spoke about his inspiration behind the mural and said “if you look really carefully you can see images throughout the mural of women laying down and dancing.”

Miami Beach, FL – December 1, 2015 – Flaunt Magazine and Guess, with Bacardí and Spotify, previewed Flaunt’s annual Art Issue issue at Nautilus, a SIXTY Hotel, with a special, limited edition, “counterfeit” supplement entitled The [CTL + C] – [CTL + V] Issue. The special issue explores artistic mimicry, re-appropriation, copy- cat culture, and the artistic subconscious’ hall of mirrors. The [CTL + C] – [CTL + V] Issue, which will premiere on news stands in January in full  format, features site specific art covers from Rem Koolhaas, Julie Mehretu, and Zaha Hadid; and includes additional cover stories with Scarlett Johansson, Lewis Hamilton, and Pusha T. It explores artistic mimicry, re-appropriation, copy-cat culture, and the  artistic subconscious’ hall of mirrors. Flaunt commenced the preview celebrations with a private dinner on the terrace of the Driftwood Room, the on site restaurant at the new Nautilus, a SIXTY Hotel. DJ duo The Martinez Brothers provided music for the evening, which was followed by a late performance by Pusha T.

Miami Beach, FL – February 21, 2015 – An exclusive crowd filled up a stunning private waterfront residence in Miami Beach to celebrate famed hotspot La Huella, which is opening its first outpost Quinto later this year a EAST, Miami.  Held in light of South Beach Wine & Food Festival, guests were served signature Parillada dishes including Grilled Sausage Criolla and Cortes de Carne (grilled meats and baked potatoes with a chimichurri sauce); and treated to an array of sounds from a live band while sipping on glasses of Uruguayan Tannat and Caipiroskas. The chic dinner soiree brought out top chefs and food personalities including Geoffrey Zakarian and actor/singer Diego Boneta. La Huella is one of the most globally noted restaurants and we certainly can’t wait for them to bring their award winning talent to Miami.
