Heineken Goes 305: Artists And Guests Party Hard to Celebrate New Wynwood Murals
The stars were out last night -- namely, little red stars on Heineken bottles at the beer company's Mural Launch Party at Cafeina in the Wynwood Arts District.
Hundreds of guests were on hand to celebrate the official launch of the Heineken Mural Project, one of several satellite events during Art Basel. The HMP features six world-renowned graffiti artists, several pop up parties, and a bike tour.
Although the HMP primarily celebrates art, last night was all about vibing. The artists, including Estria, Chor Boogie, Prime, Don Rimx, and Miami-based Trek6 and CP1, along with guests, enjoyed tagging up a huge wall. Guests danced to tunes both inside and outside, and all three bars were at least two deep most of the night.
Palpably excited, the crowd practically hummed with electricity. The only snafu occurred when the Heineken open bar ran out way before time (obviously due to the huge turnout). Note to Cafeina: Next time -- more beer. Although uber cool bartenders like Caroline, helped ease the pain somewhat.
