Well hell what a weekend! 20 hours of transatlantic flying for 48 hours of fun - and when we say fun, we really, really mean fun. Soho Beach House, Miami is without a doubt the best of Nick Jones' rapidly growing Soho House global empire. Two pools (one on the roof, and one by the beach, the longest in Miami in fact) four bars, one private beach (complete with beach boys who de-sand your feet with watering cans!) one spa, 3 speedboats on hand, plus jet-skis and James Corden co-coordinating beach ball, not to mention the never-ending flow of Grey Goose cocktails and most amazing grub (Lobster, steak and caviar); as you can see, it really, really was fun!
Crazy Jet-lag and mild hangovers aside we gossiped with Laura Bailey and Lorenzo Martone, witnessed competitive comedy chat from Michael McIntyre and James Corden, got star-struck by a Desperate Housewife (Felicity Huffman) and drank far, far too many Grey Goose cocktails onboard a speedboat - all in 30 degrees of Florida sunshine. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. Alas neither Gloria Estefan nor John Hamm made it to the festivities, but will apparently be jetting in for round-two of the opening parties in two weeks time along with Beyonce and Jay-Z. Is it pushing it to ask if we can come again too please?
