Art Institute of Chicago

I've been to Jamaican restaurants all over the country-
and there are some really great ones, especially in New
York and Los Angeles-but nothing transports me back
to Jamaica like Banana Hut (13740 SW 152nd St., Miami,
bananahutmiami.com) in southwest Miami. I'm in the
mood for some of their jerk chicken right now.
Soho House

To See Art and Culture Not only does Chicago

To Entertain Clients I really enjoy entertaining cli-

To Hear Live Music I saw my very first con-

To Get
Inspired I've

ents at Soho House in Malibu (22716 Pacific Coast Hwy.,
Malibu, Calif., littlebeachhousemalibu.com). It's the perfect mix of ambiance, great food, and cocktails. The last
time I was there, Stevie Wonder broke out into an impromptu performance.

have really great street-culture festivals, but there's
also the Art Institute of Chicago (111 South Michigan
Ave., Chicago, artic.edu), which is the best museum
experience I've ever had. It's huge; I visited on two
separate occasions and still didn't get to see everything. I especially enjoyed the display of African art.

cert ever at the Bayfront Park Amphitheater (301
Biscayne Blvd., Miami, livenation.com) in downtown
Miami, and it's been my favorite venue ever since.
Amphitheaters in general make for a great concert
experience, but what makes Bayfront Park so special
is the spectacular Miami skyline backdrop.

To Unwind

The most relaxing spot for me is
the Ritz-Carlton
Reserve Dorado
Beach in Puerto
Ritz-Carlton Reserve
Rico (100 Dorado
Dorado Beach
Beach Drive,
Dorado, Puerto Rico, ritzcarlton.com). If paradise
were to look for paradise, it would end up in Dorado
Beach. The property exudes elegance inside and out.

Jewel

My Favorite Place to Spin I especially enjoy

something I call the "intimate big-room experience"
that sums up my favorite place to perform, Jewel at Aria
Resort & Casino (3730 South Las Vegas Blvd., Las Vegas,
jewelnightclub.com). I'm a resident DJ there and I love
that it's the perfect size that's not overwhelming, yet
you really feel like you're a part of the party.
Herringbone

The Battery

met the most interesting people
at the Battery in
San Francisco (717
Battery St., San
Francisco, the
batterysf.com). I had chance meetings at this membersonly place with Elon Musk and one of the nation's top
venture capitalists and entrepreneurs, Shervin Pishevar.

For Sunday Brunch I spend a considerable amount of time

in Las Vegas for work, and I'm always happy when I get to be there
on a Sunday to indulge in brunch at Herringbone inside the Aria
Resort & Casino (3730 South Las Vegas Blvd., Las Vegas, herring
boneeats.com). I never expected to find a brunch setting that I
would consider warm and intimate in Las Vegas, of all places. Did
I mention the mood-directing of the live DJ spinning the perfect
tunes for a brunch? Yeah, they have that as well.
