Art Basel | Inside the Collectors Lounge
The 2021 edition of Art Basel Miami ended with a bang at the [Casa Dragones](https://casadragones.com/) Tasting Room in the Collectors Lounge. The bar, a reimagined version of brands storied San Miguel de Allende Tasting Room was designed by long-time friend and brand collaborator, contemporary Mexican designer [Hector Esrawe](https://esrawe.com/2018esrawe/en/home/), the circular bar hosted exhibiting artists as ‘art-tenders’ to present specialty cocktails featuring the ultra premium tequila. Rirkrit Tiravanija, Abraham Cruzvillegas Daniel Knorr, Barbara Sanchez-Kane, and on the last day, Marc Spielger, the Global Director of Art Basel got behind the bar to serve a mix of celebrities, gallerists, collectors and artists.
