We definitely love a good party, so this year my must-go party for Art Basel belongs to the Perrier-Jouet cocktail party hosted by none other than Soho House. It doesn't get any better than the Soho House in South Beach in the Tiki Garden.
The famed champagne brand has teamed up with Art Basel to become its official champgane for the festivities. A yummy tasting of Perrier-Jouet will be a delight as flutes will be dangling on the "Enchanting Tree". This feature will embrace the nature theme throughout Art Basel as well as enchant guests.
You might have once or twice heard the saying What Goes Around Comes Around, but here in New York City’s Soho neighborhood, it has a whole different meaning--one of vintage Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Celine, and other designer treasures.
With Chanel as their central feature chic boutique, What Goes Around Comes Around is a retailer that offers high-end vintage designer clothing, shoes, and accessories for both men and women. The prices range between $50 and $3,000. For 20 years this luxurious vintage shop has provided customers with clothing dating from the 1880s up until the 1990s.
Soho, NY-- we walked out of Los Perros Locos feeling dirty. Perhaps it was from the bright neon sign spewing an obscenity of pink all about, or maybe it was the strangely aphrodisiastic Mas Perfecto we tried--a hot dog blending NYC, Colombia, and just enough old school Miami. Whatever it was, we found ourselves wanting to watch, on VHS, the younger and more svelte Al Pacino introducing us all to his little friend. Yeah, that good kind of dirty.
Swedish designer Gudrun Sjoden has always gotten her inspiration from the earth. Whether it's using all natural materials for her colorful home wares and chic clothing line or promoting eco-friendly business practices, such as shipping her products by sea, Gudrun is always finding new ways of using and giving back to the earth. With a new store in SoHo she now has her heart set on introducing America to her stylish and eco-conscious products. The boutique is even on Greene Street, what a business model!

From the outside, Souen Soho appears quite subtle, nestled into a small area at the corner of Sixth Avenue and Prince Street with bicycles parked all around the ramps. Inside, however, the restaurant feels very roomy, even being furnished with such small tables. The best place to sit is in the back towards MacDougal Street, as it offers a peaceful view of neighborhood apartments, rather than the passing traffic on Prince Street or Sixth Avenue. Once seated, the many potted plants and vines placed around the restaurant present an earthy feel even within the Downtown Manhattan setting.
The Anchor Bar’s co-owner Jason LaGerenne wants to spend a million dollars so the SoHo bar’s patrons will have something cool to Instagram. What could possibly be cool enough to Instagram? Well, howabout Blackbeard’s 13 feet by 8 feet anchor that went down with his ship, Queen Anne’s Revenge off the coast of North Carolina in 1718. Yes, who wouldn't Instagram the barnacles of that thing?
Anchor Bar owner Gunther Bilali told Blackbook that LaGerenne is a boat fanatic and that the bar needs
“a real Anchor… a serious anchor.” Unfortunately, as it stands, the only thing seriously anchored is the bar’s dreams because the State of North Carolina is not about to just give up their sunken treasure.

Jon Bakhshi has formally introduced New York to RSVP, his first high-end fine dining haven in SoHo. Suited for the formal occasion, guests filed in to the intimately sized space immediately welcomed by an ample cocktail bar.
RSVP patrons won’t just think exclusivity, they’ll experience it.
A tiered dinning balcony surrounds a sunken event space with its own entrance with an immense crystal chandelier that hangs over head. The light darts and dances between round mirrors that line the walls, giving you the true sense of an upscale underground club.
