The Week In Parties
Mokaï’s wildly popular Ransom Mondays has a cult-like following. Each week, one prominent partygoer is declared missing, and it’s up to guests to swing by the club and save the day. 235 23rd St., Miami Beach
Wall at the W South Beach hosts Favela Beach, known for its festive Brazilian and samba-inspired sounds and impromptu live shows: Past performers include Talib Kweli, Bobby Brown and the Wu Tang Clan’s Raekwon. 2201 Collins Ave., Miami Beach
LIV gets an indie makeover on Dirty Hairy Wednesdays, replete with refreshingly diverse alternative-music performances and an edgy throng. Fontainebleau Miami Beach, 4441 Collins Ave.
Coco de Ville, the intimate lounge at the Gansevoort Miami Beach, hosts its Coco’s Habit party with hot resident and guest DJs from Troy Kurtz to Pirate Stereo. 2377 Collins Ave., Miami Beach
Venture to burlesque club La Fée Verte for a sexy, lavish, Moulin Rougeesque Parisian scene. For the full experience, sample one of their signature (and surprisingly smooth) absinthe cocktails. 912 71st St., Miami Beach
Although the Mr. X party at Grand Central is still in its infancy, it has already made a full-grown name for itself. With musical guests like Japanster and The Brothers Macklovitch, it’s become an essential Saturday-night stop for music lovers and seeand- be-scenesters alike. 697 N. Miami Ave., Miami
It’s no day of rest at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach’s red-hot new lounge, Arkadia. Mingle outside at the club’s private pool, then head inside for the best in modern house: Superstars Erick Morillo and Tiësto have already been there and done that, and the party only got started a few months ago. 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach
