There's another hotel party in town for those who crave a midweek fix of South Beach socializing. Described by Frommer's travel guides as "the Swanktuary," The Sanctuary (1745 James Ave., Miami Beach) is an all-suite boutique hotel/condo tucked into a little oasis off the flip-flop and spiked-heel beaten path of Collins Avenue. Tonight Thomas Barker of MUSE Entertainment will launch X-uberance, a fresh Wednesday-night gathering he describes as "Miami's sexiest new weekly party," featuring DJ Mike "Da Mooch" Mucci spinning the best Eighties music from Erasure, New Order, and Depeche Mode. "I wanted to create a lounge mixer ... a place to go for the music, to relax, have a cocktail, and connect with friends," says Barker. From 9:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. you can kick back with complimentary cocktails and hors d'oeuvres as you take in the tranquil surroundings of the luxurious rooftop pool. There is no cover charge, and the dress code is casual chic. "No tank tops or flip-flops," pleads Barker. Call 305-610-1280, or visit (LO)
