Random Night at Arkadia During Basel Week
Like any club on the beach, Arkadia has a strict door policy. Luckily, Vitamin C Communications' Javi Zayas vouched for us and got us on the list. However, getting inside was still an issue because we'd left our driver's license at, um...actually, we have no idea where we left it. And evidently, a grizzly beard and a New Times press pass doesn't prove we're old enough to drink. It took a little sweet-talking, maybe 20-minutes worth, but it finally happened, and they let us in.
We almost fell down the stairs leading into Arkadia, but managed to find our balance with the help of a friend's shoulder. Inside, the DJ kept it beachy with electro lounge beats, and a cool cat named Sunny Singh wore a drum around his neck and played along with the music. Though most tables were reserved for bottle service, we found an empty one near the DJ booth.
