For the best place to head to after night falls, we checked in with Allison Luvera, director of luxury marketing at Pernod Ricard USA, who is an Art Basel veteran and always knows just where to go.

Located next to the district’s theater, this exclusive, reservations-only bar is reminiscent of a scene out of your favorite Baz Luhrmann movie (he designed the space with his wife, Catherine Martin).

Expect a tight door, high-quality bespoke cocktails and lots of celebrities.
