If you want to connect with millennials, bring the flash first. Under Armour officials know the name of the game, which is why the nation’s best players are spending time between practices this week chilling in a “player’s lounge” that could pretty much double as a club on South Beach, with a few twists that take away illegal (for teens) activity and add in some other benefits.

So, basically, this is a Miami club during Art Week, no strip club-division and with shoes and not alcohol. Also, the dress code is quite a bit more lax.
Of course, at the end of the day, things like the Player’s Lounge are probably more important to land the next year’s commitments to the game.
Or, in the case of one key player, getting a haircut.
