Ready, set, Race House! This year, we’ve already been to Austin for tech and innovation and the California desert for the Coachella and Stagecoach festivals. Our next stop? Miami, Florida, for the big race weekend. To celebrate, we hosted celebrities, influencers and tastemakers at Gallery Race House—the next stop in our traveling Gallery House tour.

The weekend was hosted in partnership with our pouring sponsor PATRÓN EL ALTO, the luxury handcrafted prestige tequila meant for toasting to iconic moments. We also threw watch parties, yacht hangs, happy hours and more from partners INFINITI, Peroni Nastro Azzurro 0.0% and M.Gemi. Here, a closer look at the exciting lineup of events.

A Power Players Cocktail Party

For the first night of race weekend, Gallery Race House guests were treated to the finer things in life at the Peroni Power Players Cocktail Party held by the pool of our sprawling Miami estate.

The exclusive Italian-themed poolside party hosted VIPs, creators, influencers and industry power players, all of whom enjoyed Italian-inspired light bites like bruschetta and arancini and sipped on a handcrafted selection of cocktails made with premium Italian alcohol-free beer Peroni Nastro Azzurro 0.0%.

Guests were also able to customize a pair of the exclusive M.Gemi per Peroni driving loafers. The limited edition collab features M.Gemi’s staple silhouette made of hand-stitched suede in Peroni’s signature blue or red colorway, plus a soft genuine leather lining, rubber sole, custom sock with Peroni’s Chequeroni race flag design and signature Peroni tag to denote the special collection. And of course, the pairs are all handmade in Tuscany, Italy.

The M.Gemi Italian beach club-inspired pop-up was located on the house dock, right next to a luxury yacht open for guests to hang out in and enjoy. DJ Cazes, a Miami-based DJ and producer, provided the sounds and atmosphere for the night’s festivities.

A Race Watch Party

Helping guests take pit stops and race to and from events was our auto partner INFINITI, who provided attendees with luxury car rides in their INFINITI QX60. They also hosted our official Gallery Race House Exclusive Race Viewing Party on the Sunday of the prix.

INFINITI watch party attendees arrived before the engines were revved for the big race and were able to soak in the excitement on a giant viewing screen—all while noshing on Miami tapas-style hors d’oeuvres and sipping spicy margaritas and cocktails.

They could also slip into a sleek ride themselves. The INFINITI QX60 and all-new INFINITI QX80 were both parked in the driveway of the Miami mansion for guests to test the available built-in massaging front seats, heated steering wheel and panoramic moonroof.

Anyone need a pit stop after all this partying? We know the perfect place.
