Of course, for any of that to happen, the hotel needs to actually open. And judging from the above photo we took yesterday, it seems like there's still quite a bit of work to be done. Last we heard, the mammoth-sized nightclub and cabaret lounge, XL, was gearing up for a fall opening, way ahead of the hotel's actual completion date (early 2012). But when we walked around the construction site, we couldn't find any hint of XL signage or even a separate entrance.
Meanwhile, XL's website, though up and running, refuses to provide additional info like menus, themed nights, or featured performers. Instead, it simply states its objective of providing a "comfortable after-work environment with daily happy hour."
When we tried registering as an official XL member, we were told our membership card "will be sent out in October." Um, isn't that around, like...now?
Has anyone else heard anything about the opening of this place? Or do you have additional thoughts on the matter? We're curious to hear your input!
