If you’re like us as soon as March 1st hits, you’re updating your spring wardrobe with pastels and pops of neon – investing in your newest pair of festival lace up sandals, a bikini (or two), arranging pretty blooms allll over your house, dusting off that bicycle and planning beach getaways with your bests. With spring always comes a beautiful reinvention, the shedding of winter coats & heavy fabrics for gauzy prints and caftans, trading comfort food for juicy and colorful fresh fruits and vegetables now in season. Indoor takeout (we’ll never give up Netflix & chill no matter the season) for outdoor farmer’s markets and best of all, welcoming that that big ol’ dose of Vitamin D we’ve all been craving so desperately!

Skylines have always kickstarted our hearts. At any time, they stun—either a lordly beacon to inform your place in daylight or a twinkling assemblage of man-made stars in moonlight. They’re collections of monuments, archived with the weathered dings of history. They’re robust, sparkling mountains of glass, steel, brick, and plaster that you can live in, learn in, work in, or take charge of interests in. They’re beautiful, astounding panoramas of boundless architecture.

'Oh Beeeehaaaave!' You know the infamous line belted out with a glorious accent by Mike Meyers in Austin Powers. Well now's your chance. An Australian hotel group has turned reviewing on its head. Its staff has been given the power to praise or shame a customer's lodging behavior. The Art Series Hotel Group  has launched a campaign to gain better guests. 

Websites like TripAdvisor and Yelp have made it easy for patrons to grade accommodations, amenities, customer service and food, but there was no forum for members of the hospitality industry to speak back out about YOU - until now.

The Report

This venue is VRV (Venue Reporter Verified), our venue reporter Eliot has personally visited this venue. One of the best places to host a giant, massive party has to be at the new Guerin Pavilion, tucked away in the larger Skirball Cultural Center. Set in the backwoods of Los Angeles, Skirball has been one of the largest and most well-known sites to both the natives and venue aficionados. It’s not because it’s a 17,500 square feet of event space nor is it because it’s quite simply a dashing space to take your kids on a journey of Jewish history and other Museum Exhibits like Noah's Ark. It’s because the place, on its own, is a mega-house of beautiful and artistic expressions. Though you can’t lodge here, unless you’re some kind of ninja tenant, but you will enter and leave knowing you have a viable venue to plan that fantastical idea of a party you’ve been chewing on.

Designed by renowned architect Moshe Safdie, and nestled on a 15 acre campus in the Santa Monica Mountains of Los Angeles, the Skirball has been admired for its sensitivity to the natural environment, modern architectural design and lush landscaping. The peaceful garden patios and a dramatic, contemporary ballroom integrate light, space, water, and sweeping vistas. Flexible exterior and interior spaces accommodate gatherings of all sizes, from intimate groups as small as 15, to gala events of up to 2,000 guests. Events can also be planned so that your guests can view and go on tours of the Skirball exhibitions!

The Report

Have you heard the word?! Jose Ignacio is a small village on the Southern Coast of Uruguay. It is often referred to as the Hamptons of South America.  Over the past few years it has become known as as a celeb hideout and one of the coolest destinations in Latin America. For the trendsetting bride or party thrower, this would be the new coastal paradise hotspot to host a wedding.

Located in sleepy fishing town turned socialite stomping ground is Estancia Vik José Ignacio, one of South America’s most exclusive retreats. This ranch combines incredible design, personalized service, eco-friendly practices and an unparalleled collection of contemporary Uruguayan and international art. For those in search of peace and privacy, the property sits on 4,000 acres and boasts a traditional Spanish colonial structure with white adobe walls and a red tin roof. The building is 50,000 square feet, with more than half of that space made up of interior patios of outdoor space – courtyards, gardens, covered walkways and an herb garden located within the Estancia walls. There are a plethora of venue spaces to host a shindig and photo-ops from every angle. From the front this may look like your average Estancia, but don't be mistaken, not only is Estancia Vik filled to the brim with interesting art from Uruguayan artists, but also has as a full sized polo field overlooking the Laguna de Jose Ignacio .

HOW WILL MY GUESTS GET HERE?: Estancia Vik is accessible via the Punta del Este airport, which is serviceable by daily flights from airports in Argentina and Brazil. Punta del Este is an international airport that accommodates private jets 24 hours a day. José Ignacio is a thirty-minute drive along the coast. Alternatively, guests may fly to the capital city of Montevideo one and a half hours away
