Everyone knows about the Delanos Florida Room the basement-like space transformed into a private playground for Miamis A-list. But above ground, located in the lobby of the historic hotel, is the Rose Bar. You probably didnt think you had any reason to visit, but now you do, thanks to an impromptu hipster dance party called Young, Fresh & New. Its a Thursday-night weekend primer brought to you by South Beach scenesters Erica Fickling and Luke Dupont. From 9 p.m. to 2 a.m., DJ Ruen spins a fun mix of painfully cool classics and new Hype Machine-approved tracks. The winning combo has the hipsterati showing up in full force to play and party. And while the hotels bright lobby is a stark contrast to the Florida Rooms dim atmosphere, nobody seems to mind. Theres no cover, but your duds will be scrutinized at the door.
