That's why at its peak, the party, which used to take place at Mokai, was the best excuse to drink on a weekday. Now, with its return to Coco de Ville, Tuesdays are back. Returning as well is DJ Ross One, who puts the favela in the party's name by mixing indie, hip-hop, and pop with the Rio export of baile funk.
But it's the L.A. outpost of Coco de Ville that seals this party as a must-attend. Small and intimate, the dimly lit space is understated yet elegant. While there is never a cover charge, doormen make sure only the best of Miami pass through the ropes.
