The Hot List

The Hottest WMC Pool Parties

Good news: the Winter Music Conference is here. Bad news: your dance card’s already getting full. Herewith, the week’s five most noteworthy poolside fetes. The soundtrack to your cannonball begins now.

UD - Moonlit Lounging at the Delano

Moonlit Lounging at the Delano

You’ll come here to party poolside amongst whimsical Alice in Wonderland environs, replete with a performance by Groove Armada, free-flowing champagne and models in Ray-Bans. (Presumably more than that, but still.)
Keywords: Swedes, water-resistant high heels

UD - A Private Affair at the W

A Private Affair at the W

The scene: invite-only. The vodka: flowing. The DJs: secret. Only the limited number of confirmed guests get the goods (Skrillex and Afrojack are past set masters).
Keywords: Dubstep, questionable haircuts

Mar 22-24, noon-7pm, no cost, W South Beach, 2201 Collins Ave, 305-938-3000

UD Hookup: Email us with why you deserve to be at the Belve Lounge’s otherwise invite-only event. We’ll hook up one reader (and a guest) with gratis admission.

UD - Bass and Truffle Fries at Highbar

Bass and Truffle Fries at Highbar

The temperature’s 80, but pool water can be impervious to the rise in mercury. The smart bet: the bass-heavy Dim Mak party by the heated rooftop pool at Highbar. Bonus: platefuls of truffle fries.
Keywords: Champagne buckets, swan dives

Mar 24, noon-9pm, $50, Highbar, 1111 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, 305-534-8455

UD - Your Poolside Prescription at the Perry

Your Poolside Prescription at the Perry

Things may get a bit crazy during the Rx party on the 26,000-square-foot rooftop of the Perry. As in mojito-fueled-chicken-fights-and-dance-offs kind of crazy. Be prepared to bring your Super Soaker as reinforcement.
Keywords: Frozen drinks, squirt guns

UD - Bottles and Bay Views at the Mondrian

Bottles and Bay Views at the Mondrian

For the Mondrian’s Sunday Chill Session, you’ll pull up into a boat slip (accommodates 65-foot yachts) and commandeer a cabana by the bayfront infinity pool against a backdrop of DJs and sultry samba dancers. Samba dancers are suckers for a tiki barge.
Keywords: Brazilians, aviators, cucumber martinis
