Art Basel | Miami | Calendario

Yes, art world, Art Basel in Miami Beach is almost here. And you can pretend all you want that you're coming to Miami exclusively for the high-brow art and lectures, but nobody's going to judge you if you manage to get some serious partying done while you're in town. This is Miami, and if there's one thing we're really good at, it's partying.
And rest assured, there will be tons of parties during Miami Art Week. From the completely free to invite-only, here isthe most complete collection of musically driven, nightlife events — with a dash of art thrown in, because, you know, we aren't savages. And thanks to a generous 5 a.m. closing time — 24 hours in Miami's Park West district — there's plenty of time for you to make an Art Basel mistake. (Good news is that mistake probably has a flight back to New York to catch on Sunday.)
Check back often for updates, because we will continue to update this list as more events get announced. Don't see your event listed here? Send us an email.
