Welcome to NYLON’s Party Report Card, where we give you the Who, What, Where, Why, and When on this week’s hottest parties — plus all the gossip you missed. It’s the inside scoop you need to feel like you were on the invite list. Sorry in advance for the FOMO.
WHAT: NYLON Nights
WHEN: Saturday, Dec. 9
WHERE: Star Island, Miami Beach
WHY: To close out Art Basel 2023
THE VIBE: Just when you thought Art Basel was a wrap, NYLON pulled out all the stops for another legendary edition of NYLON Nights. On Saturday, Dec. 9 partygoers pulled up — many coming via Blacklane’s on-demand service — to a fantastic, waterfront estate on the hyper-exclusive Miami Beach neighborhood Star Island, where they were met with glam red lighting and bumping house music — and a fully-stocked, oversized neon refrigerator full of BODYARMOR FLASH I.V. drinks. In true NYLON fashion, drinks were strong and plentiful, courtesy of Patrón, who served up cocktails in crowd-favorite, miniature Patrón bottle replicas.
A-list guests like Red Rocket and The Sweet East actor Simon Rex and Insecure’s Yvonne Orji mingled on sleek black couches, but the true star of the night was a massive tuna carried out in true bottle-girl-style by Sushi by Bou for an unforgettable live carving. The on-site sushi chef entranced and energized the crowd with quick, precise cuts before serving up tuna that bordered on life-changing — fresh, fatty, and beyond flavorful. The one night only pop-up also featured plenty of sake — you could hear the group cheers echoing throughout the property each time a group shot was poured.
Over by the mansion’s private dock, partiers regaled each other with tales of Basel recaps and tuna devotion while staring out at the calm Biscayne Bay — when they weren’t taking turns using a yacht as a classic Miami photo backdrop, of course. And as night continued and the sun got closer to rearing its face, guests were well-prepared for any and all potential hangovers thanks to ready-to-go Thirst Aid Kits, inspired by various flavors of BODYARMOR FLASH I.V. Hydration Boosters.
