The Thompson LES pool parties have become a major staple in the downtown summer scene. The weekly Friday party, Bright Young Things or BYT.3, was created three years ago by Steven Hamilton, along with his DJ, Jasper Stapleton, and it just keeps getting bigger and better. The gorgeous hotel on Allen St. is the perfect atmosphere for the event. This is the kind of pool party you don't want to miss.
