Events in Basel
Everything around Art Basel is fun and glamorous. Plenty of parties for the old and the young, and everyone in between! Vitra had their summer bash the first night I arrived, and that was a truly pleasant and fun evening!! The Vitra campus is, first of all, architecturally awesome, with different parts designed by Zaha Hadid, Frank Gehry, Alvaro Siza, Herzog & de Meuron, Jasper Morrison, and several other architectural giants! The summer party was scattered all around the magnificent grounds, and art lovers were strewn between the Design Museum, the actual factory buildings, the VitraHaus, and the conference Pavilion. Great, food and drinks, perfect weather, and a super cool DJ (which is why the party turned into a fun dancing night!
For those looking for some serious nightlife fun (clubbing, dancing, and some good music) do try to get yourselves on the by ‘Invitation only’ list of parties like the ‘Director’s Cut’ and the bash at the very private Club de Bale. Those were great fun and more about grooving than networking.
As for great networking with a glam atmosphere, nothing beats the cocktails at the Beyeler Foudation! What an interesting, international crowd of creatives and art enthusiasts. The grounds are beautiful and the museum is astounding. Unfortunately I lost my phone that night (luckily it was my last night) and it apparently eventually died and my photos of that day were not uploaded to iCloud. So, sadly, I have no photos of that sensational night to share with you, but do check out the beautiful foundation grounds here Fondation Beyeler
