DOWNTOWN ARTS + SCIENCE SALON  - DASS


We are a combination of local Social Club and TED Talks. Like TED Talks we believe in spreading great ideas under fifteen minutes, and social club in the historical sense, a place for exchanging ideas on scientific innovations, books, art, technological trends and how to improve the neighborhood.


Take a break from virtual reality

Rediscover the art of conversation over a glass of wine, or two.

DASS is the best place in Miami to meet intelligent women.

The Miami New Times.

Drawing on the concept of the salon, which flourished during the European Enlightenment and enjoyed a heyday during the Parisian jazz age of Fitzgerald and Gertrude Stein, DASS stages discussions ranging from science to literature and music.

 “A wonderfully written satire set in Downtown Miami… It explores the zaniness and insanity Miamians love and endure.” The Huffington Post.

“Raúl Guerrero recreates the exuberance and chaos of Miami in unsettling intimacy, while probing the ambivalence of love, sex, betrayal, relocation, greed, art and language.” Arts & Science Magazine.
