Cubicle Dreamin': Find Me at the Onyx Bar Inside the Do and Co Hotel
Cubicle Dreamin' is a feature in which we ask the hotel mavens to take some time out of their busy work day, surf the Internet, and tell us what hotel they wish they could beam themselves to right that very second--all on the slave driving companies dime, of course. Oh, like these people aren't surfing aimlessly anyway--at least now their purposeless clicking will be cobbled together into useful hotel stories--we hope. Have a destination hotel you are just dying to leave your cube for? Send the story our way.
In this episode, editor Juliana fantasizes about the perfect place for a drink. Enjoy.
Lately, I haven't had time for much Cubicle Dreamin' but today it's finally Friday and I've had a few moments to spare. So I hit the internet at first looking for shoes. Don't know why. I don't need 'em but I always like to see what's out there. It's sort of a compulsion I guess.
Anyways, when I got bored (translation: upset that the shoes I really want are priced at $760!!), I decided to get back to work. Tired of the mainstream hotel news, I headed over to the Cool Hunter, a site I really enjoy mainly because they have the greatest photographs. Although, the high-res makes it a pain to load up on your browser.
Still, when I saw this photo of the ONYX bar inside the Do and Co Hotel in Vienna, I wanted to go there now. Like NOW. Like beam me up and over what have you. I don't even have to stay over night, I just want to get in there. And I haven't got this way about a hotel in a loooong time.
I definitely need a vacation and although I can't get to Europe just yet, I'm considering stopping here next Fall.
What you see from the Haus is a straight-on, full-size, real-life panorama of St. Stephen's Cathedral - Stephansdom -- that has defined Vienna since 1147 AD. It is the sound of this Cathedral's massive Pummerin (big bell) that announces the official arrival of the New Year in Austria.
And that's a way more fulfilling experience than designer shoes, right? Right??? (Note: I grabbed this shot from the hotel website but go to Cool Hunter for high-res glory.)
