Le Baron Pop-Up at the Delano's FDR Lounge Was the Dance Party of Art Basel 2014

Last Wednesday night, we trotted down the Miami Beach Boardwalk past Miley Cyrus wailing away with Wayne Coyne for a small crowd of the most aggressive adults ever to elbow their way past doormen and cops. We weren't interested in actually getting trampled to see Hannah Montana cover the Beatles -- as camp as that sounds. We were heading over to the Delano to the most desirable dance party that coincides with Art Basel Miami Beach, Le Baron.

This year, the roaming and alt-exclusive party was housed underground in the Florida Room now known as FDR Lounge at the Delano. The line was still short since doors didn't officially open until midnight, but that didn't keep a "Real" Housewife from scoffing at us at the door thinking we wanted to go to some magazine party by the pool.

No thanks, lady, not interested in your "chic" shindig. We wanted to dance and laugh and make new friends with smiles on their faces, not sneers.
