If you haven't checked out the newest lounge over at the Gansevoort South Hotel (which actually might lose a few cool points after the loss of its original owners), you probably fall into one of two categories: You either didn't know it was open or you weren't able to get pass the velvet ropes. Coco De Ville is actually part of STK, and like its Los Angeles counterpart, it too decided to have an exclusive lounge for the city's beautiful people to congregate in -- as if Miami need another one. But what sets this apart from the other lounges, is that while bottle service is encouraged, the majority of the space isn't taken up by couches and tables. Which is a good thing, considering the size of the venue is pretty small.
Our photographer Lex Hernandez stopped by the reboot of Tuesday night party Favela Chic at the lounge. Here is all the party mayhem he captured.
