2021 And That's A Wrap

While everyone else spent this year trying to figure out NFTs and Bitcoin, we have been busy working on ways to enhance our guest's experience for 2022.‍ We have some exciting developments in the works for next year, including boozy drag brunches, children packages, exclusive club level events, lobby liquor and espresso tastings (hello martinis?), and even some larger property renovation projects (more to come on that soon). But before we get ahead of ourselves, we wanted to conclude 2021 with some excitement of it's own!

Post-Holiday Holiday Parties

While the holidays can surely be the most wonderful time of the year, they can often be the most stressful time of the year too. It's a busy season for everyone with obligations secured left and right.

So if you're ready to normalize post-holiday holiday parties, this one's for you.

Wed Small. Save Big.

If 2020 has taught us one thing, it's that bigger isn't always better.... unless it comes to discounts, wine pours, and pizza slices of course. But when it comes to love, intimate gatherings and meaningful celebrations have proven to be the obvious winner and main priority for couples this year. So we've decided to relish in that love and celebrate our "intimate wedding couples" by offering BIG discounts and even BIGGER perks when booking now - April 2021!
