ashlee-harrison-markus-ketty-jilian-sanz-and-michael-sheehanViceroy Fridays at Club 50 officially launched last Friday night, a weekly party hosted by some of Miami’s most influential socialites.  The scene was sort of like a speakeasy, fifty stories above the city, thanks to the sultry, sexy sounds of Kamikaze and the Big Bounce and a host of beautiful faces, young and seasoned, which graced the gorgeous space.  The concept behind the party, is to have a “group of  ‘bright young things’ hosting their friends for evening of like-minded, socially relevant, industry heavy hitters drinking and dancing amongst the stars, no less,” says the glamorous Jilian Sanz, fashion editor of Florida International Magazine, who was one of the party’s hosts. “In a nut shell, Club 50 is right where we belong!”  Beautiful and humble, what a combination! After the live performances, the adorable, Troy Kurtz, who’s as easy on the eyes as he is on the ears, took over the tables and got everyone dancing.   According to Jochy Ortiz, one of the party’s promoters, “Club 50 is Miami’s epicenter for power players and hipsters. This premiere lush lounge is unlike others in the area. Influenced by similar lounges in New York and South Beach, Club 50 invites guests to listen to top DJs and live performances while overlooking the city’s famed skyline.” Be advised:  You must be a pretty young thing or be accompanied by one to enter. South Beach Veteran Johnny Rhodes keeps a tight door, like the one he kept at the Shore Club in yesteryear. For information and table reservations contact 305.503.4400 ext. 7138.

The party continued at Louis at the Gansevoort on Saturday night, as Jochy Ortiz hosted “Round 2,” to celebrate one local columnist’s birthday, which shall remain nameless (but you can probably guess whom by looking at the photos or by-line above).  As expected, the party was out of this world, featuring hilarious party antics, Napoleon dancing atop the bar, tambourines, great music and all the decadence for which Louis is well-known.
