LUCKYRICE wants you to eat, drink, and get lucky at the Fourth Annual LUCKYRICE Festival. The flagship festival, April 28th-May 5th, celebrates the diversity and culinary culture that is found throughout the Asian region. With proceeds going to City Harvest, the LUCKYRICE Festival is made up of large-scale tasting events, festive dinners celebrating traditional and innovative Asian fare, and other gastronomic gatherings.
Returning this year are LUCKYRICE’s most popular events the Night Market, the Grand Feast, and the Cocktail Feast. New to this year’s festival is the LUCKYRICE Parlor on Bowery at the Old Bowery Station where nightly pop-up dinner parties will be held. These exclusive dinner parties will be prepared by Chef Danny Bowien of Mission Chinese Food, Tokyo’s Chef Ivan Orkin, Chef Siapin Chutima of Lotus of Siam in Vegas, and others.
In 1992, Michael Capponi, dubbed "The SoBe Prince" of nightlife, launched a swanky Thursday night party called LUSH at The Butter Club. At the time, South Beach was experiencing a revitalization period and soon would grow into the party scene that it has become today, a trendy mecca for nightlife and music. With much credit to Capponi for reshaping SoBe's nightlife, his infamous Thursday night party would go down as one of the most legendary parties to hit South Beach ever.
Seasons come and go, but nightlife only evolves. In proper cyclical fashion, Capponi is back to his roots that started it all. Revamping LUSH with heavy hitting nightlife partners in tow; Michael Martin Angel, Matt Werner and Brett Weithorn, the rebirth ignites this Thursday with a pre-party in the Bohemian Grove at 10:30 p.m. followed by the debut of the newly renovated WALL Miami in The W Hotel. Catch sounds by DJ Affect along with live instrumentals, collective energy and lights.

It may be unusually cold for South Beach, but Tuesday nights have never been hotter. If you're looking for a scene there's nowhere to be other than Wall Lounge at The W hotel.

It’s all thanks to Joonbug and OneFifty that we get to take a break from the monotony of Florida living and travel down south to Brazil for the evening. So party likes its Carnival, or just an average Tuesday, for there’s no time like the present to take advantage of the amazing nightlife that comes with this city.

The W Hotel in South Beach has become the melting pot for transcontinental cuisine with the recent opening of its feature restaurant, Mr. Chow. Renowned Executive Chef Nick Du transplanted his culinary talents from the world-famous Grand Hyatt Hotel in Beijing to one of Miami's premier tourist destinations. Trained at the famous Royal Cuisine of China culinary school, Chef Du has teamed up with restaurateur and creative design genius Michael Chow to encapsulate the traditional style of Asian thematic concepts while creating a South Floridian twist to age-old craftsmanship. Chef's Du's insistence on providing a superb and breathtaking dish to each of Mr. Chow's elegant guests is attributed widely to his tenure as Executive Chef at "Made In China," regarded as the "best restaurant" in the largest Asian nation.
