ULTRA Electronic Party Buenos Aires 2013

ULTRA Electronic Party Buenos Aires 2013  |  Buenos Aires, Argentina  | So of course, last night, right off the door steps of my plane with LAN Airlines, my best friend Laurencio Adot calls me and gets me to the VIP Tent at this massive electronic party in Buenos Aires called ULTRA umf, happening last night and again this weekend. He was invited by PR Leo Matheu for the local magazine GENTE (aka. people version of Argetina) and Absolut Vodka.

Located at Puerto Madero, Dique I, featuring Swedish House Mafia’s Final Performances on both weekends, the return of Carl Cox & Friends and ASOT 600 to the Megastructure, and many more. The 15th Edition by far the most elaborate production and lineup to date!
Stayed with him chit chatting with models, producers, and celebrities in general for a few hours till the exhaustion from my flight plus the time difference cought on me. On top, I realized that I do not quite enjoy much this parties without my boyfriend anymore. But ALWAYS a treat to spend time with my BFF Laurencio, TOP couture fashion designer of South America.

Lords South Beach Hotel

Lords South Beach Hotel |  Miami Beach, Florida |  What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when I say “Gay Hotel”… exactly. Well Lords South Beach, for my great surprise, is completely the opposite. Lords, identifies itself with the following line – An Appropriately Oriented Hotel, welcoming everyone with focus on alternative and open minds. More than a hotel; it’s a quantum leap in gay travel. A home away from home, just a lot more fun, posh, friendly, sexy, easy, satisfying, and gratifying. When I decided to book my nights there, at first I was a bit hesitant, but the experience was far beyond expected. Not a luxury hotel, not the most elegant pool area or restaurant, but certainly a hot spot in Miami Beach for those coming to relax, hit the beach, be in the groove and enjoy SOBE at full both during the day and most important at night.
My absolute favorite at Lords South Beach… the color scheme. Full yellow and orange, this is like heaven to meet. So much positive energy, to only match the atmosphere of South Beach. Located in the most dynamic beach destination on Collins Avenue between 11th. and 12th. Street. An exciting new hotel appropriately oriented for your special South Beach moments, you’ll love the bohemian rooms, fun-spirited dining and ultra-hot spots – the comings, the goings, the night life, the good life. Out MagazineABSOLUT VODKA, and Levi’s, their partners in crime, make exploring, socializing and looking good in South Beach easy.

LORDS South Beach varied room types are tailored to meet each guest’s personal desires. All rooms have an emphasis on comfort and convenience, going-out and staying-in will be equally fun. Featuring flatscreen television, i-pod/CD speakers, luxe linens by Frette, a large private bathroom with amenities by LUXE Bath, and a top shelf minibar. Video below of the Pied-a-Terre Suite, where I stayed. Made for mingling and mixing. Fun-spirited, with a sophisticated flair, these suites are appropriately appointed with intimate sitting rooms, ideal for after-beach or pre-evening cocktails… or both.

PAD Room, the standard category, with the iconic headboard photos of Elizabeth Taylor over your bed, hey a much better than a crucifix right.  Cheek and chic meet in Lords South Beach Pads with bold colors and custom-designed graphics. Video below.

I was very happy to learn about their concept ROOMS THAT MATTER, with which I agree 100% and have put into practice several times at CM by Carlos Melia. PAD Rooms category, but with an added bonus. 10% of proceeds will automatically be donated to your room’s assigned Lords South Beach give-back group – Hetrick Martin Institute or The Point Foundation – your choice. Bravo.!!! Lords.
Former Hotel NASH, and current member of the Cambean Hotel, Lords open its doors less than a year ago, becoming into the new Gay Hot Spot of Miami Beach, an area where the Gay exodus has been very notable. Before you use to walk by Ocean Drive, Collins Avenue, Washington or even Lincoln Road, and there was a day/night scene. Well that is all gone, but slowly growing back into a more refined and trendy way.
The lobby of the hotel with their huge Polar Bear, the bar and the pool area are the epicenter of meeting and mingling of South Beach. Sunday Cabana Boy Pool Parties, Wednesdays Game Nights and special live performances every week. So all you need to do is get your look on, get downstairs, and let the games begin.
The Pool area, where the emphasis is on plural. Enjoy three enticing plunge pools and an infinite number of equally enticing pool-goers. With a sunning, lounging and snacking area, poolside is the optimal spot for making a splash. Cha Cha Cabana, a poolside, fully stocked and fully staffed bar and restaurant (weekends until 2am) to make sure our swimmers and sun-worshipers are hydrated and happy is like performing a sexy little dance – a Cha Cha.
The Porch, a unique spot for casual socializing over Collins Avenue, SoBe style. With a prime view of the passing scene, The Porch is where Miami’s ‘elite meet’ to witness the comings and goings, and enjoy cocktails and light bites (until midnight). At  Cha Cha Rooster Bar , let your foot start tapping to the beats as you take in the glamour of South Beach and realize the possibilities for the evening are endless. Toast friends over an ABSOLUT cocktail at the Cha Cha Rooster BAR (Until 2am).
When the sun goes down, SOBE becomes alive boasting in full its sex-appeal. The staff and Concierge at the hotel, which I must point are very friendly and resourceful, will assist you with restaurant suggestions and more… But hey, do not forget to stop by the EQUINOX Gym, which offers Lords guest with daily free passes. After all, you are in South Beach and all that matters is how you looked 10 minutes ago. CM
