Unlike gimmicky social clubs, entrance into Société Perrier requires little more than being "the best in nightlife, art, music, fashion, travel, mixology and cocktail culture." To learn more about a few of the fashion designers, DJs and drinks that have what it takes, check out our favorite picks from the site below.

1. Nervo

Australian twin sisters and former models Liv and Mim Nervo have already cut their teeth in the music industry writing pop hits for Ke$ha and Kylie Minogue, but their newest endeavor includes tag-teaming as DJs, while also producing a record of their own. Their single "We're All No One," featuring Steve Aoki and Afrojack debuts 6 September 2011. Having opened for Britney Spears on her Femme Fatale tour, the two are already well on their way to being a double threat.

2. Recalling Studio 54

Those of us that never got the chance to experience New York's Studio 54 in the glamorous, hedonistic glory of its disco days can hear vivid recollections from two former staff members on SiriusXM. The Marc and Myra show recounts first-hand tales of the legendary club and its famous patrons, including Andy Warhol and both Jaggers.

3. Captains of Industry

All kidding aside, Stonerokk and Graham Funke, aka the Captains of Industry, are seriously legit DJs, as exemplified by their strict, records-only policy. Here, they recall a few celebrity encounters and the one song they refuse to play.

4. Catherine Malandrino

A world traveler and bon vivant, fashion designer Catherine Malandrino is an enthusiastic advocate of new media and its facilitation of the globalization of fashion. Adding to her roster of collaborations with fashionable pop stars such as Madonna and Beyonce, Malandrino hints at a unpcoming project with Lady Gaga.

5. Morning-After Mixology at the Standard Spa in Miami Beach

An impressive demonstration of morning-after caregiving, the Standard Spa in Miami offers hangover-plagued guests a menu of restorative elixirs containing ingredients like coconut water, honey, ginger—some with booze, some without. Those suffering from at home will benefit from this quick video course in morning-after mixology.

6. Grand Opening New York: LES Runway

In its latest incarnation, the ever-morphing downtown gallery space Grand Opening offers up fashion two-ways: after dark, the space hosts runway shows by emerging and independent designers such as New Form Perspective, Pip-Squeak Chapeau and Gemma Redux, while daytime hours reveal a pop-up shop selling the previously-showcased wares.

The CH25 is a showcase of creators and innovators from a broad range of disciplines who are currently working to drive the world forward.
