Style File: Pool Parties
Tried to sneak into one of our local hotels to use theirs? Now you don't have to. In tonight's Style File, Seven's Belkys Nerey shows us the hottest pools open to locals.
WSVN -- From fake names to room numbers, you've probably tried every trick in the book to sneak into a hotel pool.
Nikki Sapp: "You definitely have to say something like, 'I'm staying in room 112.'"
Erin: "My trick to getting in the South Beach pool party was to wear the most minimal bikini possible."
Amanda: "I've lived my life sneaking into pools because I've never had one."
Not anymore, this summer some fab hotels are opening up their pools to locals. At the Viceroy Hotel in Brickell, head up to Club 50's rooftop pool for the refresher Sunday pool party.
Amanda Nosal: "The pool party goes from 12 to 5, and the DJ starts spinning at 1."
It's a Brazilian-themed party with cocktail specials, music, and since it's 50 stories up, you get amazing views of Miami.
Nikki Sapp: "This Brazilian theme is so great. You know, we have Caipirinha in our hands, we're sitting with a great view, and the water is just perfect."
At the Mondrian Hotel in South Beach, locals are welcome to come by car or boat to their Sunday soiree on the bay, and for $125 you can rent a room for the day, so you can go from pool to shower to a night out.
Over at the Newport Beachside Hotel and Resort in Sunny Isles, it gets wild at their Bottles and Bikinis pool party every Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m.
Erin Mia Milchman: "We have a fashion show at 2 p.m., we have a really hot bikini contest at 4 p.m. We've been having an amazing crowd. We had 1500 people here last weekend."
Lounge by the pool or grab a tiki hut on the beach and sip on one of their special beer and liquor tubes.
Holly Pacheco: "They are three and a half foot, and you can have your drink of choice in there, whether you want to have beer, sex on the beach, margarita, mojitos."
For a more tranquil scene and $25, locals can get a day pass for the pool at the Four Seasons Hotel in Brickell. You get a towel, frozen fruit, magazines and even an Evian spritz by an attendant to cool you off.
So no more sneaking around, just dive in for summer.
Belkys Nerey: "The W in Fort Lauderdale also hosts a pool party on Sundays, as well as the Fountainbleau in South Beach hosts a party at La Cote."
