While the heated competition between 206 countries continues at the Olympic Games, something a little more lighthearted is happening on Rio’s Ipanema Beach. Swiss luxury watchmaker and official timekeeper of the Games, Omega, transformed Casa De Cultura Laura Alvim into the ultimate party spot coined the Omega House, for socialites and VIPs who want to let their hair down during this celebratory period for sports. The Omega House kickstarted festivities on August 7, showcasing their themed rooms that recall scenes from Alice in Wonderland. Also on display are the fine wristwatches that are the cornerstore of Omega's existence. Eddie Redmayne, also an Omega ambassador, was the one of the first to help inaugurate opening night followed by model Alessandra Ambrosio who showed up on Sunday evening for a special “Gold Night” that celebrated the winners of the Games.
