Art Basel Miami Beach 2014 Party Guide UPDATED

The hipster chicks in black hats are ready to arty-party. Are you?
The hipster chicks in black hats are ready to arty-party. Are you?
Marco Torres

With the tents going up in Midtown, Wynwood buzzing with activity, and new restaurants and hotels opening in Miami Beach, it can mean only one thing -- Art Basel Miami Beach is making its way back to the Magic City. And so are the parties.

Now, some will lament the Basel party scene as the "death of art," but pay no attention to those people. The art world isn't adversely affected just because you decide to dance and drink until 5 a.m. the first week of December.

So screw the naysayers. And remember to check Crossfade's Basel Party Guide often, because we'll keep updating it as new events are announced. If you don't see your party listed, feel free to email us with the details.
