ART BASEL RECAP: The Pigalle Mansion Lowdown
Art Basel. My, my, my. Art Basel was an adventure this year. Traveling to and from all over the city searching for the hidden gems of socialites, abundance of liquor, and celebrities all brought us to the hidden gem known as the Pigalle Mansion. This gem on Palm Island was put together by the French street wear clothing brand and party-pumpers themselves Pigalle. With a wit and ear on European sensibilities they easily put together the best events of Basel. Wheather it was watching Drake DJ poolside to getting endless Raz-ber-ritas (UMM MY FAVORITE POOLSIDE DRINK EVER?!) from the open bar I was a kid in a candy store because this mansion…rocked! So thankful for my friend Charaf for inviting me and my friends to this very special retreat during Art Basel.
The first day I visited the Mansion I was greater by girls dressed in cute pink sundresses offering me a drink. It was a brisk and beautiful Miami day and Virgil was spinning poolside basically whatever he wanted. Being in a place where we were amongst peers he was free to play whatever he wanted. BBQ was provided by Ghetto Gastro from NYC and drinks we’re pouring. The view was breathtaking with a perfect open scenery of the Port of Miami. Once sunset hit, I didn’t want to leave. Didn’t the endless amount of celebrities who were casually hanging out around the mansion. From my friends Ricky from Dee & Ricky, to Jordan Dunn, Kitty Cash, and pretty much everyone in the industry it was a socialite headquarter for sure.
The last night I attended the #PPPMMM Mansion it was for a very special performance. Drake was in the building along with his father and some of the Taz’s Angels. The whole crowd stared as Drake took to a very special and rare DJ set, who knew Drake DJ’ed? Ha. It was such a “show” that even Drake went on the mic to say “everyone put away your cameras, just have a good time!” With a full open bar and Miami’s most elite movers and shakers in the room it was another night that only happens during Basel. AND THERE WAS FREE CIROC – this made my night hahaha. Plus I was surround by such amazing friends and company. I was so happy and had an incredible night. Thank you Charaf!
