As NOBLEMAN’s inaugural kickoff to the Miami Grand Prix, we hosted a night to remember with McLaren and Compass Real Estate at an extraordinary 20MM waterfront mansion. The VIP event was the perfect start to the Miami weekend, and the exceptional location provided the perfect backdrop for this magical night. Provided by Nancy Batchelor and the Compass Miami team, this 8,000+ square foot property allowed guests to dance, laugh, and get to know one another on an expansive waterfront deck and glass-wrapped terrace while we enjoyed the fabulous Miami weather.
The evening began with an exclusive tasting of The Classic Decanter from LOUIS XIII, the brand’s finest eaux-de-vie since 1974. And with a toast to the night – and weekend – ahead, we were off! An exclusive preview of luxury designer Mark Pomerantz’s new Spring/Summer collection was presented for VIPs, and guests had the opportunity to shop the pieces and get to know the designer himself – a one-of-a-kind highlight of the evening. We danced to live music and enjoyed delicious small bites – special additions like a waterfront Cohiba cigar lounge were the perfect treat. Luxury was the theme of the night, and guests indulged in tastings of Tequila Casa Dragones and delicious caviar provided by Astrea Caviar amidst excited conversation.
We were treated to a spectacular Miami sunset and toasted with glasses of Armand de Brignac Brut Rosé, the perfect refreshment after a sun-filled afternoon. After small bites of smoked salmon, tuna crudo, and beef tartare, guests had the chance to discover a rare selection of timepieces by Bremont, an award-winning British watchmaking company. Bringing only the most showcase-worthy watches, guests got an up-close look at truly exclusive selections from this extraordinary brand.
Guests sipped incredible wines from Joseph Phelps while they checked out the star of the night – the incredible McLaren Artura, one of only four available in the world. Parked on the property, guests were given the exclusive chance to explore this elusive machine in person, a true thrill for any car aficionado. Double Cross Vodka was enjoyed by all, and the night came to a close with a speech to officially kick off the races of the weekend. We danced, we drank, and we got a hands-on look at the new Mclaren Artura. See you next year, Miami!
