Welcome to the Neighborhood

| June 21, 2016 | Parties National

THE PARTY Welcome to the neighborhood! Washingtonians gathered in Glover Park for breakfast bites and morning sips while taking in the sites of the newly renovated Kimpton Glover Park Hotel. Ribbon-cutting-watchers were served coffee (lots of coffee!) and had their selection of various flavored bellinis from the bellini bar; favorites including watermelon, mint, and blueberry. Hors d’oeuvres from the hotel’s Italian inspired new restaurant, Casolare, were also passed around the morning gathering.

THE PEOPLE Notable guests included Michael Schlow, chef of Casolare; Michele Oka Doner, the hotel designer; Councilwoman Mary Cheh; and Graham King, founder and owner of Urban Athletic Club Gym opening in the basement of the hotel.

BEST IN SHOW With Glover Park being Kimpton’s tenth hotel in Washington, D.C, they sure do know how to put on a show! Using their outdoor event space, speeches were given and the ribbon was cut to kick off the grand opening of Glover Park’s relaxed, chic hotel. To complete the look, this 8-story building features a black and white mural on one side of the hotel, representative of a map of the Glover Park area. Is it time to check-in yet?
