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.

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

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.

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

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

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
