Best Enjoyed Cold:
Absolut Elyx heads to The Snow Lodge
Even among the celebrity buzz and movie premieres at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, the place to be during the weekend was the pop-up lounge, The Snow Lodge. Created when The Surf Lodge team in Montauk paired up with the chic Evenleigh from LA, the blink-and- you-miss-it hotspot attracted celebs and hipsterati from both coasts.
Each night some of the biggest names in Hollywood came through for a variety of parties. Gwyneth Paltrow came to the Young Ones dinner, and Aaron Paul, the Hellion Dinner. Willem Dafoe, Rachel McAdams, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, and Anton Corbijn also got together at the The Most Wanted Man dinner. Elizabeth Olsen and Boyd Holbrook were at the Little Accidents party, Anne Hathaway and Lilly Mcdowell joined for The One I Love party, and Jason Swartzman mingled at the Listen Up, Phillip cocktail party. At each event Absolut Elyx took center stage at the bar.
While summer in the Hamptons may be months away, for just these few events, The Surf Lodge team gave everyone a reminder of their days relaxing on Ditch Plains Beach and nights meeting new friends under the glow of hanging lights. Summer can’t come soon enough.
