SEVEN at The Raleigh Continues as the Happiest Happy Hour During Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim

Locals and visitors are invited to join the glitterati The Raleigh this week and enjoy the action of the 6th Annual Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim, even without show tickets or VIP passes. The historic Miami Beach hotel is celebrating their 70th anniversary and offering their SEVEN Happy Hour seven days a week from 4pm – 8pm. Stop by the restaurant at The Raleigh and the Martini Bar to enjoy $7 Martinis and Cocktails and a $7 Hors d’oeuvres menu. Hoping to catch a glimpse of sexy swimwear models like Irina Shayk before they make their way to the runways, SEVEN guests can enjoy cocktails outside in the garden and on The Raleigh patio as well.

The Raleigh will once again become the epicenter of the fashion industry from July 15‐19, 2010 as supermodels, celebrities, press and buyers come together to celebrate fashion and beauty with the sexiest swimwear designs in the world at the most elite swimwear event in the country. For the 6th year The Raleigh hosts Mercedes‐Benz Fashion Week Swim and serves as the backdrop for shows at the Cabaña Grande, Oasis and at The Raleigh’s historic pool and Penthouse.

As one of Miami’s most cherished landmarks, The Raleigh celebrates its 70th anniversary of fashion, elegance and glamour this year. The oceanfront hotel, with its expansive Oasis sanctuary of private cabanas and famed Esther Williams baroque pool, has been the backdrop for films and photo shoots, and host to countless events from Mercedes Benz Swim Week and the Chanel Fashion Show to the most exclusive Art Basel parties. Built and designed in 1940 by famed architect L. Murray Dixon, one of the most prolific architects of South Beach’s historic Art Deco District, guest rooms are adorned to match, with the fabrics and style of the 1940’s, featuring period furnishings and terrazzo floors. A stunning 3-bedroom, 6000 sq.ft. duplex penthouse with 1,950 sq.ft. terrace and outdoor shower crowns this grande dame of South Beach. The Raleigh’s Martini Bar was recently named of the “World’s Ten Best” by Details and The Restaurant serves Florida cuisine with a South American influence in a romantic outdoor garden setting.
