The Grand LOBBY
The Grand Lobby transports us back in time with its Renaissance Revival elegance, twenty-foot ceilings and tall arched windows. Enjoying almost a century of history and grandeur, the lobby’s tastefully curated re-design strikes the perfect balance between classic and modern.
Impressive in scale with a most intimate ambiance, the Grand Lobby feels more like a comfortable living room. A fully stocked bar, stone fireplace and just the right mix of vintage and contemporary pieces create an exceptional setting for small or large parties. The Grand Lobby is also where our musical artists set up every evening for alternative live jazz performances.
The Crystal DINING ROOM
Located just past our Grand Lobby, this elegant space makes for an impressive background for sit down dinners and cocktail parties alike. High ceilings at the entrance lined with crystal chandeliers play a dramatic counterpoint to the more intimate and private space in the rear. An original black and white checkerboard marble floor is juxtaposed with a reclaimed wood communal farm table, perfectly in keeping with the hotel’s signature contemporary-meets-classic décor.
Take advantage of the Dining Room’s private entrance and incorporate part of our outdoor patio area into your event for those guests who like to get some fresh air.
The Velvet LOUNGE
ocated on the mezzanine level just off of our Grand Lobby, the Velvet Lounge is a chic and eclectic hideaway, Prohibition meets Paris in the 1920’s. This VIP room is open to the public Thursday through Saturday after 8pm and is also a favorite for those seeking a ‘loungy’ event space. Blow out your birthday candles, unwind at a wrap party or mingle at a company cocktail event. This private area is equipped with its own bar and an excellent sound system so you can get ready to twist, tango or rock n’roll to the sounds of your own ipod or DJ. Always ready for a party, the Lounge features an optional dance area and disco ball. For additional ambiance, project a classic movie or your personal slideshow.
The Parisian ROOM
Turn of the century meets contemporary in this simple and elegant space, its décor utterly inspired by vintage Parisian loft apartments. ‘Wedding cake’ moldings take on a new meaning when blended with stark white walls and an artful herringbone reclaimed wood floor. Large windows allow for plenty of sunlight, fresh air and a view of the Downtown Plaza and its Lion Fountain.
This bright and beautiful room is located on our 2nd Floor Gallery level and connects to Mr. Culver’s office through the Ante-Room, creating the possibility of an extended area or breakout room at any time during an event. Additional amenities include wireless internet, plentiful power outlets and a projection screen.
Wonderfully set up for presentations, buffet luncheons, cocktail parties and screenings, the Parisian Room is a lovely, elegant and versatile meeting and event space.
The Studio is adjacent to the Parisian Room and shares its same bright and elegant décor. Added space appropriately overlooks the Historic Culver Studios and is perfect for smaller gatherings and meetings. This quaint corner room is able to connect to the Parisian Room for a shared function and offers the same audio/visual capabilities.
