The New Hotel Erwin in Venice Beach Dares You to Get Inked
A grafitti mural in progress at the Hotel Eriwn.
JDV’s Hotel Erwin is officially opening today, and they’re already introducing some interesting packages to get people over to L.A.'s Venice Beach.
Their "Ink & Stay" Package, “for free-spirited Venice visitors with high pain tolerances ONLY,” is valid when you book a room at the Erwin for a stay between July 4-31. The $329 rate includes a $100 voucher for a tattoo at the famous House of Ink on the Venice Beach Boardwalk, a House of Ink hoodie (so everyone will know how badass you are), Lubriderm lotion and an ice pack to help in the healing process, and a bottle of Corralejo Tequila Reposado to take away the sting.
Spectators, tagalongs and wusses will get a packet of temporary tattoos to play with.
The other day, we got a sneak peak of the bright, graffiti-accented guest rooms, and the breezy rooftop deck lounge (called "High")with expansive views of the city, boardwalk and Pacific that will make it a must-stop hangout for Venice inhabitants and tourists alike. The hotel's restaurant, Hash, which is located off the lobby will open for breakfast starting July 3.
If you’re already tatted up and don’t mind another ink session, anyone JDV-crazy enough to get a tattoo that says "I Heart Erwin" will get a $500 Amex gift card. That’s pretty much as good as cash. Go on, we dare you to do it.
