These days, she crowd surfs at Travi$ Scott concerts, swaps snacks with Beyonce and hangs out with LeBron James but Miami-based bombshell YesJulz didn’t always have such lofty connections. “In high school I planned this prom party and charged everyone like $10,” she told Maxim. “I profited like $3,000 and that was the most money I’d ever seen.” That humble Tampa Bay beginning has blossomed into an international schedule that will span New York, Ibiza, DC and Vegas all in the next month. “Basically any major music, fashion or art event going on, I’m doing a party or something around it with an artist or a brand,” she says.

These days, time in Miami is fleeting for the promoter/party producer/influencer who spends her time hosting festivals and producing parties around the globe, but she still has a finger on the city’s pulse. From hosting her Best Day Ever party there to DJ-ing during Miami Swim Week, Julz is the ideal guide to Miami's vibrant nightlife.

"Ok, so it's my party but FDR Mondays at the Delanos is the most fun you can have in Miami. It's basically a no frills, balls-to-the-wall, rager of a party." And yes, sometimes she host impromptu "twerkathons" on site.

"Since it's Miami you have to top it off with a strip club. I like to keep it classy so I go to E11even which is this new 24-hour strip club with a 5-star restaurant on the roof. They have some off the best chicken wings and the biggest butts; those are very important details." Indeed they are.
