Celebrating their 8 year mark in the New York City nightlife scene is nothing short of a momentous step for Pacha New York's co-owner and President, Eddie Dean.

Opening a restaurant is tough, opening a restaurant in New York is even tougher, but opening a restaurant that caters to New York's elite is impossible. Yet, the Koch brothers seem to have made their living out of doing the impossible, and then doing it agan. The identical twins Daniel and Derek, with their GQ good looks, charm, and relentless work ethic, have vaulted themselves into the creme de la creme of New York's restaurant and entertainment industry. Hailing from a small town in Ohio with dreams of making it big in the city that never sleeps, the twins had an unsuccessful stint as models before turning to waiting tables to pay the bills. They learned everything there was to know about food and wine, and thanks to the partnership with New York restauranteur Frederick Lesort and investor Michael Wainstein, opened the brunch club Jour Et Nuit (night and day) in 2008 in the West Village. The day club for brunching jetsetters ballooned into a huge success, and attracted attention of major networks to make their story into reality TV. In March, the first season of Playing With Fire aired on E!, cementing the twins' reputation as a household name.
Fig & Olive celebrated the launch of their new music collection Tuesday night (December 3) in their famous Meatpacking district restaurant.

The collection, out now, features music from Rhye, Poolside, and many others, is a smooth collection of music that captures the feeling of the high-class French Riviera. Be sure to check out the collection, and capture the feeling of Fig & Olive for yourself. ‘Fig & Olive: The Music Collection’ is out now on Legacy Recordings.
Any New York City club venue that lasts for 8 years and is still going strong calls for a celebration.

We definitely love a good party, so this year my must-go party for Art Basel belongs to the Perrier-Jouet cocktail party hosted by none other than Soho House. It doesn't get any better than the Soho House in South Beach in the Tiki Garden.
The famed champagne brand has teamed up with Art Basel to become its official champgane for the festivities. A yummy tasting of Perrier-Jouet will be a delight as flutes will be dangling on the "Enchanting Tree". This feature will embrace the nature theme throughout Art Basel as well as enchant guests.
Aside from it's diverse culture, Miami is also a place where art is a way of life. Locals celebrate this every first Saturday of the month with Artwalk which, in its own right, has become a city staple. With that said, enter: ART BASEL.
Of course we love to gush over unique events throughout the city but we've already made our pick of events over to kick off this year!
Sweetwater is the place to be this Art Basel!
