The entire staff was very nice and attentive the whole night. Especially the cocktail waitress Allie. She was my fave! They had an open bar of Pravda Vodka and champagne till 11 pm.
It was packed with local and big time celebs like Mark Tamis (Area Vice President Morgans Hotel Group), Ben Pundle (Nightlife and Entertainment Authority for Morgans Hotel Group), Michael Bay (Director), Russell Simmons and date (Entrepreneur, Co-founder of Def Jam & creator of Phat Farm), Mark Ecko (Fashion designer and entrepreneur), Alan Roth (Entrepreneur & Publisher), Tracy Morning (NBA player Alonozo Morning's wife) and Spencer Tunick (Photographer).
Apparently Paris Hiltn made some appearance towards the end at 3 am. Everyone was treated to performances by a male and female lounge singer with a piano player (the piano is see through).
The highlight of the night was a burlesque performer. She had two acts. One was a strip tease and the other was with a bottle of Absinthe (The Green Fairy), a magic trick with a black snake and fire eating. Everyone in the lounge was in awe.
Delano has totally needed a lounge like this since day one. I can't wait for the New Year's party at The Florida Room! PS - They still have a room in the basement with gym equipment and treadmills.
Saturday I headed over to The Florida Room with a group of friends. Mr. Granville welcomed us and we went right in. We got a table in the corner next to the piano and did shots of Absinthe. Saw lots of local celebs...Ben Pundle (Nightlife and Entertainment Authority for Morgans Hotel Group), Zack Bush (Party Promoter), Lance Bursten (President of Krieger Watch), Jose Ortiz (Principal for Supermarket Creative Agency and Ocean Drive Magazine Contributing Editor) and Ingrid Carses (Party Promoter) and my fav cocktail waitress Allie.
Thanks again Gregg!
