Key West’s Island House To Host Its First White Party Week Event

Saturday Nov 10, 2012

Key West, FL - For the first time, Island House Key West has been invited to serve as an official hotel partner and party location for one of the nation's most anticipated HIV/AIDS fundraisers, White Party Week.

Based in Miami, White Party runs from November 16 through 26, and for the first time, attendees are encouraged to keep the party going in Key West the day after. Island House, the world's longest continuously operated gay guesthouse, will undergo a white transformation for the event scheduled for Tuesday, November 27, 2012. Come, wear white, enjoy the white décor, socialize and dance.

Admission to the White Party event at Island House is free to all men. The party will be held in the café/bar area where people may come and go as they please without purchasing a day pass. White Party week-long pass holders, whether or not they're staying at the resort, will receive complimentary resort privileges until 8am Thursday, November 29 (including access to spa, sauna, steam room, pool, towels, video room, the gym, etc.).

Attendees are encouraged, but not required, to book a stay and enjoy the newly refurbished rooms and the great service Island House is legendary for.

In addition to its white-themed decorations on the big day, the guesthouse has significantly updated its room and pool deck furnishings. Here are a few of the updates guests now enjoy at Island House:

• New room furniture including latchless West Elm wooden bureaus and glass-topped end tables with matching chocolate finish in guestrooms;
