Everyone knows that nightlife has always been at least half the point of Art Basel Miami Beach, and this year is shaping up to carry on its long tradition of art-ing by day and partying hard after dark. Prada kicked the week off with the opening of their new space in the Design District, then partnered with German artist Carsten Holler to bring his Double Club to Miami. Guests including Rita Ora, Diplo and Ricky Martin danced in rooms designed to look like an Italian disco and a Cuban tropical garden, all while taking in a performance by Wyclef Jean, who greeted by crowd with, "Welcome to Cuba, baby!" as he walked onstage.

On Wednesday, Hauser & Wirth celebrated Mark Bradford at the Beach Club of 1 Hotel South Beach, alongside Diplo, Wendi Murdoch, Elie Golding, and the Princess of York, with a DJ set by Mark Ronson. Later at the Gucci and Artsy Projects Miami Party, A$AP Rocky, Ana Kraus, Timo Weiland and Rupi Kaur watched Dev Hynes kill it on the piano amidst a multi-artist immersive installation.
