Where Is Le Baron? Art Basel's Best Party Goes Nomadic

Le Baron is on the lam -- but there's an app for that.

The pop-up Parisian nightclub, ever THE place to party during Art Basel Miami Beach, is leaving its 5-year digs at The Delano and plotting a fresh experience for the faithful: the now-roving throwdown will come alive in a new spot each night from December 4-9, with the location kept secret until 6 p.m. every day.

That's the magical hour at which a night's address will be revealed through the soon-to-be-released iPhone app, "Where is Le Baron?" and the collective's website, Twitter (#whereislebaron) and Facebook.

But the Le Baron family isn't stopping there. To salute the travelling party, the team will gather at Free Spirits each night from 8 to 10 p.m. for a glass of Champagne. Then shuttle buses will be on hand to escort Le Baron guests from Free Spirit to each night's location from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m.

How to become a Le Baron guest? The usual Miami tricks and lists don't apply at all, so you have about a week to become a fabulous French street artist or besties with Peaches. Good luck!

(For those who prefer to get their Baron fix in the daylight, there'll be the Space Coast-inspired Luna Park installation on Miami Beach by the club's official DJ duo Kolkoz. In collaboration with Galerie Emmanuel Perrotain, the pair is creating a moonscaped soccer field on which they'll hold a tournament involving teams of artists, collectors, curators, art critics and gallerists. Look for that on the sands of South Beach between the W and the Setai.) where is le baron poster
