Stop by La Sandwicherie this weekend and you might see Lazerdisk Party Sex
Want to get a glimpse of your favorite DJ and their celebrity pals during Miami Music Week? We recommend avoiding downtown Miami altogether and heading towards the beach, as droves of people will be flowing in and out of the Bayfront Park area during the three-day music fest. However, a slew of major acts and DJs will also be headlining club sets on the beach, and our guess is they will avoid crossing the causeways for dinner. Head to these seven beach haunts for five-star fare and stargazing.
Scarpetta, Gotham Steak, and Hakkasan at Fontainebleau
With LIV Nightclub and Arkadia just footsteps away, the Fontainebleau's three premier restaurants will undoubtedly host their share of VIPs. Cedric Gervais and Nervo have both been spotted enjoying eats inside the hotel, and power players like Steve Angello, Benny Benassi, Alesso, and Ne-Yo will be floating in and around the building. 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; fontainebleau.com
Celebrity sightings are a regular occurrence at this famed French restaurant, and Miami Music Week will be no exception. Insiders tell us that megastar Tiësto and Bob Sinclair are slated to stop by on more than one occasion throughout the week. Last year's festivities also donned an appearance by Christian Audigier. 309 23rd St., Miami Beach, 305-763-8688; villaazurmiami.com
The Bazaar and Katsuya at SLS Hotel
With day-to-night parties happening every day throughout the SLS Hotel’s property, it is safe to assume that a least a handful of the scheduled acts will slide into The Bazaar by José Andrés or Katsuya for a lunch or dinner break. DJs set to perform at the SLS Hotel and Hyde Beach include Paul Oakenfold, Chris Lake, Nervo, and Sydney Blue. 1701 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; slshotels.com
With all the music madness happening this week, Lazerdisk Party Sex is intent on grabbing a bite at this famous sandwich spot. Earlier this week the mask-wearing DJs told Facebook fans, “Goodness gracious, just got really excited for La Sandwicherie this coming week in Miami.” And the spot’s late-night hours (until 6 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays) are sure to attract other hungry musicians as well. 229 14th St., Miami Beach, 305-532-8934; lasandwicherie.com
