Society Sundays at the Polo Club
Society Sundays at The International Polo Club is the quintessential ‘See & Be Scene’ event of the spring. Complete with wall-to-wall buffets, high fashion, endless champagne, specialty bars, and celebrity sightings, what’s not to love? We were pleasantly surprised by the fashion; as women graced the greens in classic Lilly Pulitzer and floppy hats, they were also taking risks by standing out in ‘not so Polo traditional’ looks that worked. Our goal was to find a happy medium between the two: preppy spring colors with a splash of LLScene chic.
Upon arrival, we were escorted to a private table with front row polo viewing. The ambiance and service was nothing less than phenomenal, as each guest was treated like an A-lister. Halfway through the match, everyone was invited on to the greens to stomp divots, better known as having a ‘Pretty Woman' moment, complete with complimentary champagne and ice cream.
We expected the ‘after party’ to offer coffee and after dinner drinks, but it was quite the opposite! Down came the blackout curtains, and in came a Palm Beach dance party for the stars. It was our kind of after party; fully equipped with a DJ, flashing lights, and cold cocktails. We walked down the red carpet to the VIP Lounge, where bottle service and gorgeous people were plentiful. Sunday polo is the epitome of the high society dream you thought it would be, but less stuffy!
The Polo Club offers a variety of ticketing options suited for any experience, but if you’re looking to get the most out of your Sunday, we highly recommend the Veuve Clicquot Airstream Lounge Brunch Package for Two. This package includes the Pavilion Reception, a lavish gourmet brunch, a complimentary bottle of Veuve Clicquot at your table, and exclusive VIP Airstream Lounge or Veranda seating. Sunday Polo anyone?
The boys were a little reluctant when we told them about our Sunday Polo plans. They knew their outfits would be forced on them, and they would have to take a million pictures of the #SceneGirls. We immediately pulled out a “we told you so” as we walked up to the amazing buffet. With instant drink refills, #SceneBoy settings, and polo matches, they were pretty happy with how the day unfolded. The after party was the biggest shock of all. By the end of the day, none of us wanted to leave. The next day, they were on the phone with their buddies bragging about their day, and planning their next Polo outing.
