Fontainebleau rang in the new year with a live performance by Pharrell Williams, a huge countdown and a DJ set by Afrojack. The crowd stretched around the pool and the stage to see and hear some of the biggest names in music as the celebrated 2013 and prepared for the brand new year ahead.
Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke are going to be partying it up in Miami for New Year’s Eve! Don’t worry though, there won’t be any VMA flashbacks with foam fingers or twerking involved because they aren’t performing together. Miley and her buddy Pharrell Williams will reportedly co-host a poolside concert at the Fontainebleau. There will be special performances by Pharrell and Afrojack too.
If you want to see Miley that night, you might want to start saving up now. Tickets start at $275 and go up to $40,000 for a package of 30 VIP tickets, drinks and party favors. The service charge for that package is $3,200. You can also get a poolside “bed” for 10 for $5,000 plus $400 gratuity. Cha-ching!

It was definitely a Sunday-funday at the Fontainebleau Hotel on this lovely, Africa-hot Labor Day Weekend. What made it different from every average day, was perhaps the Pharrell and Robin Thicke concert going down, on the North part of the campus? Oh, yes, I swear. So, were you unable to find tickets? Well that is because the concert was private, and only available to hotel guests and certain VIP’s including moi and moi’s entourage (we had our designated section in front of the stage, to the left).
The list included Craig Robbins, Brooke Soffer, Jeff Soffer and his new wife, supermodel Elle Macpherson, media guru Brian Feit, Rebecca Brock, Jeff Feldman, LIV mastermind David Grutman (who Pharrell made a shout-out to in the middle of his performance), Haute Living Publisher Sarah Mirmelli, Menchy Cotes, Cassandra Martino, Kamil Parchomienko, Jilian Sanz and Lauren Gnazzo. No amount of sweat could stop the lavish crowd from dancing. At first, Pharrell kept the crowd dancing to hip-hop jams, from the N*E*R*D days to more modern collaborations with Snoop Dogg–Lion. He then sang Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky.’
The crowd went nuts, it was priceless. Then came Robin Thicke, who performed like a champ. It was not his first time at the FB. He had a show alongside Mariah Carey at the FB opening party nearly six years ago, which to date, is one of the best, exclusive events I have ever been to in Miami. Today, Thicke sang with a major band and three glamorous back up singers, and belted out ‘Lost Without You’ and covered Al Green’s ‘Lets Stay Together’. Then for the finale, they performed their Top-Hit ‘Blurred Lines,’ and really, everyone went wild. The energy was a ten…. I guess it was all about the ten. I drank approximately ten bottles of Fiji water, and lost ten pounds of water weight.
Post Fontainebleau, my clique walked on to the boardwalk and went next door to SoHO Beach House, where we sipped on some fresh Coconut Cartel juice with the proprietor, Mike Zighelboim. The perfect way to end a shvitzy Sunday, #hyrdation, and what is a SoHO House adventure without running into some fierce Miamians like Jilian Jacobson, John, Susan and Theresa Turchin, Kristina Brumer alongside Mike and Cris Weinberg.
