 Art Basel, the world's premier modern and contemporary art fairs, is returning to Miami Beach to showcase the latest and wildest in arts and performances of all kinds.

Very popular with art lovers, collectors and resellers, Art Basel Miami Beach has confirmed year after year its status of not-to-miss art event in the Magic City.

A favorite amongst Art Basel Miami Beach's artists to chill out after a long harassing day, Basel House mixes art and music of all styles at The Bitter Truth bar in Midtown, and features live music and cocktails, with unannouced guests, impromptu music and art sessions, and a 3D art installation by a collective of Miami’s finest artists.

If you're more into artists at work than work of arts, if you'd love to meet them and exchange about anything and everything rather than waiting in line for a glimpse of a framed painting, Basel House is definitely a place for you.
