Maxim hosted the hottest party of Art Basel Miami with a celebration of our November/December issue at the Plymouth Hotel in South Beach. 

Cover model Chase Carter hosted the annual soiree and DJ Mad Linx kicked things off before Miami legend DJ Irie amped up the crowd even more. 

The fun-filled evening culminated with a special performance by rapper Yo Gotti. DJ Mad Linx got back on the decks to keep the festivities going into the early morning hours. 

Maxim teamed up with speakeasy gallery Good Luck Dry Cleaners (GLDC) to transform the venue into a visual wonderland decked out with luxurious one-of-a-kind installations made on location, like a 24k gold Pool Cabana Installation, complete with GLDC magnum bottles by Edward Acosta. Modern artist Jeremy Penn and contemporary stencil artist Lambros displayed stunning 8 foot tall canvases inspired by Carter’s cover shoot that enthralled the 600-plus guests. 

Hotel walls, bathrooms, doors were brought to life with custom artwork and signature details by prolific artists JPO, sacsix and Phil Reese.

Event partners included Blu e-cigs, Skycraft Studios, Maestro Dobel Tequila, Roc Nation, CMG, The Plymouth Miami and Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill. Attendees sipped specialty cocktails by Maestro Dobel tequila and savored delicious bites from Blue Ribbon Sushi.
