Tourists are scarce during Miami's summer months for two good reasons. Just idly standing outside sends sweat glands into overdrive, and sudden thunderstorms often dampen ones mood. But weather be damned! It isn't going to stop the band of downtown misfits of Poplife from making the Sunday hangover a little more exciting by adding chlorinated water.
Just Add Waterheads for Blade and its poolside area at the Fontainebleau and turns it into something of a visual paradox hipster pool party meets ultra-luxe beach resort. The fashion norm is a combination of sunglasses in neon shades, short shorts on girls and boys, and children's floaties worn ironically. But even if thats not your taste, youre still welcome. The DJ lineup changes weekly usually the special guest the night before at Poplife will spin here but this Sunday will feature the aquatic tunes of Mike Deuce and Induce. And nothing says independence from British rule like grilled meats, which Blade will serve poolside in addition to its full menu (all for a fee, of course).
The party starts at 2 p.m. and continues until sundown. Dips in the pool are free, but for table or cabana reservations, call 305-674-4690 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
