BondST Inside Thompson Beverly Hills: Not Until Thanksgiving
A Dodd Mitchell-designed room inside Thompson Beverly Hills
While the hotel is reportedly set to open Nov. 5, Morr said that his restaurant will not officially open until after Thanksgiving. He tells Eater:
The restaurant takes up much of the main floor of the hotel and will have a second-floor lounge, booths, banquettes and a sushi bar. The decor is a combo of the NYC original with Dodd Mitchell touches (also designing the hotel); Morr describes it as "comfortable, cozy, sexy, moody."
There's a custom-designed communal table made from a 2500-year-old tree (it was already dead, relax) adjacent to the sushi bar. The food will be the same mix of Japanese-inspired and sushi as in NYC.
We've also heard that the hotel may not actually open until around Thanksgiving and judging by the massive scaffolding we saw last week, we kinda believe that. Also, the rooftop pool/bar/restaurant won't open until February 2008.
But remember, you can still book the newly renovated rooms there--you just won't have an official Thompson Hotels experience. Rooms can be booked through the Beverly Pavilion website. We found a king room for November 5th for $179 a night. This is a pretty great deal for a prime BH location, so long as you don't mind construction.
