It may be January, but in the Magic City, summer is forever. So slip on your itsy-bitsy designer bikini, grab your beach towel, and make a splash at Hyde Beach's Pool House Saturdays. "It's pretty self-descriptive," says Hyde's Bruno Cardinali of the daytime bash. "It's a pool party and we play house music, and our venue kinda looks like a pool house." But while house beats are mainly what you'll hear while lounging by the pool and checking out the hot bods, it's "not so much a fist pumping party," Cardinali laughs. "Basically, we try to play more of a sexy sound, more of a European type of vibe. We try to stay away from the big nightclub scene." And like any experienced DJ, resident Chicco Secci goes with the flow. "I see the crowd in the moment and I go with it, from sexy house music to EDM to deep house," the beat banger says. "It doesn't have limits." "I like to see people having fun, so I go in one direction for a while. They follow, and then I switch it up. It all depends on the situation." But while Pool House may try to avoid the whole uhntz-uhntz thing and provide an all-weather party environment, when it comes to exclusivity, Cardinali concedes that Hyde "runs a very tight door." "Saturdays is the party where you're gonna encounter a lot of people from all over the place," he explains. "We also seem to attract more celebrities on Saturdays, a lot of football players, whoever is in town for the weekend." So while everyone is welcome to partake in the poolside festivities, "we cater to a certain kind of clientele and the prices are obviously not cheap," Cardinali says, "and it kinda keeps the crowd a little diverse. "Everything about this place is Miami," brags Cardinali. "You don't have to go to the pool at all. You can hang out in the garden, kick it inside at the bar and play foosball or watch college football games. You can design it to be whatever you want. It's a straight up party."
