Saved by the Bell

If anybody interpreted the recession as an opportunity to expand, it was definitely the party promoters of Poplife. Over the past several months, the crew — consisting of Aramis Lorie, Barbara Basti, and Jake Jefferson — has been getting hounded by Miami Beach megaclubs desperate for bodies to fill dance floors and VIP couches. After a short break from doing RokBar's Thursday-night Good Clean Fun party, the downtown party posse is back with another preweekend bash.

Recess at Twelve Lounge (1200 Washington Ave., Miami Beach) brings together their usual laid-back across-the-causeway vibe in a South Beach setting every Thursday night. "It's a fun club atmosphere without any of the hassles of the big club," Basti explains. Resident DJs Contra and Mike Deuce keep the partying going, along with $5 beer specials.
