4 Days at Gallery Art House in Miami: Here’s What Went Down

Pool. Padel. Party.

There’s a reason why cutting-edge entrepreneurs, innovators and the world’s most forward-thinkers all find themselves in Miami Beach at the start of December. Art Basel, the most modern and contemporary art fair, returned from December 8th through the 10th for its twenty-first edition, and this year we joined in on the fun with Gallery Art House—our second installment of the traveling creator house bringing brands, community and the coolest culture moments together.

In partnership with Patrón, we celebrated the weekend by hosting VIPs and tastemakers across art, fashion, tech and business with a lineup of dinners, performances, networking events, yacht parties and plenty of padel. To pull off such an extraordinary lineup of events in the midst of one of the most action-packed weekends was no small feat. Here’s what went down each day.

Day 1: Parties Poolside

Day one kicked off with an “Eyes Eat First” brunch hosted by Meta to reveal the new Ray-Ban Smart Glasses, now integrated with livestream and AI technology. Our guests were also treated to complimentary car service throughout the entire weekend from BMW and their luxurious all-electric BMW i7 and BMW i5 vehicles (seriously, the i7 has a full movie theater experience in the backseat).

That night, the CMO of BMW North America, Marcus Casey, and Gary Vaynerchuk hosted a VIP dinner with an intimate group of executives. The dinner was full of thoughtful conversations and some memorable performances from DJ Millie and the Foodie Magician, Josh Beckerman.

Day 2: On the Yacht

We started day two with a yacht ride around the city, thanks to our partner Boatsetter. (Hi, J-Lo!) Folks popped over to the house to hang in the Meta Creator Lounge, by the pool and on the yacht, while sipping cocktails from Patrón.

One of the biggest attractions at Gallery Art House was transportation to the Reserve Padel courts from BMW. With views of Miami Beach as the backdrop, attendees were there from sunrise to sunset. We ended the night with a Permanence Party, sponsored by Patrón and an epic performance from Mojave Gray.

Day 3: Tattoos & Omakase

Trudy Lines was the hit of the day as she gave out custom tattoos. DJ Millie came back for our afternoon “Vibes Only” pool party with Meta, along with the famous DJ Austin Millz. We finished off the evening with the “Art of Sports” dinner, hosted by Chase featuring a roaming omakase experience—unlike anything we’ve tried before.

Day 4: That’s a Wrap

The full weekend of events finally came to a close with the Meta Ray-Ban Infinity Party. While the guests enjoyed Patrón cocktails, DJ Vashtie set the scene. At the end of the night, Austin Millz returned to helped guests, including Victoria Monet, play piano using the Quest 3 VR Headset. An incredible night to end our epic Art Basel weekend in Miami.
