Tasting Table's Born To Rum

This New York City heat has been taking a toll on all of us, which is why last night guests escaped to Tasting Table's Born To Rum event at Cienfuegos.  This late summer cool-down was an exotic get away with tropical fruit punch bowls in bright reds and yellow-oranges.  Rum was the inspiration of the night and made its way into every cool beverage served.  Following the sent of rum through a sandwich shop, then by shimmying up an unadorned metal staircase, guests knew they had made  it when the spicy sounds of Latin music filled their ears.

The vibe of the night definitely was cheery with the cascading chandeliers from the two toned sea foam green ceiling.  For those who needed to satisfy their hunger, there were finger-food versions of Carteles' Cubano sandwich, with house-roasted pork and garlicky mustard. To get a heads start on working off the food, some even broke out into an occasional salsa dancing (keeping Dirty Dancing Havana Nights at the back of their minds, we're sure.)

Is it bad that we want to be drinking rum punch now?

W New York held their summer music series Symmetry Spins at their very own Oasis Bar last night. Guests came together to feel the groove of the exclusive DJ sets and to lounge in an appropriately Earthy-sophisticated atmosphere, finding an oasis away from the hustle and bustle of life outside the hotel lounge.

There were exclusive DJ sets by Resident STADJ Model's DJ Cassie Stevens and DJ Marybeth. There was also a special live performance by New York-based electro duo The Golden Filter. Guests enjoyed complimentary sips and free nibbles throughout the night as the beautiful people spun crowd favorites.
