At the start of the month, the international art community jetted to Miami for Art Week, the annual programme of art fairs, parties, and cultural happenings across the city. We joined in the celebrations at Soho Beach House Miami and Miami Pool House, playing host to an exciting line-up of events – from wellness classes with Nike and talks with this year’s hottest artists to co-hosting parties in our beach-front pop-up tent with White Cube, Porsche, IRO, and more. Over the weekend, members enjoyed complimentary CELSIUS drinks from the CELSIUS Beach Shack, as well as a Coco Loco cocktail by Vita Coco, which was available from our beach bar all week long.
