The Revere Hotel's New Pret-A-Surf Staff Uniforms Are Tres Belles
If you have difficulty trying to get work done on hotel rooftops, then we have two pieces of advice for you: one, stop trying to get work done on hotel rooftops, and two, definitely don't visit the new rooftop pool at the Revere Hotel, where attractive female employees will be prancing around all summer long in matching swimwear outfits designed by Pret-a-Surf.
The checkered hot pants, striped bikini tops, and nautical-themed jerseys that you see above are the new staff uniforms up at Rooftop @ Revere, which debuted last week.
As hotel uniforms go, we like the breezy, New England look—certainly racier indeed than the silk embroidered robes we saw in Bangkok, yet tamer than the W New York Downtown's double-breasted tuxedo shorts.
And if you fancy yourself (or your loved one) dressed up like one of the Revere cocktail servers, then all you have to do is head down to the lobby retail shop, and pick out some matching Pret-a-Surf attire of your very own.
Rooftop @ Revere debuted last week, offering the usual array of rooftop amenities (private cabanas, chaise lounges, a cocktail bar). Luckily, access to the rooftop space will be free for non-guests until July 1, when the hotel will start enforcing a $30 admission fee (so better get over there quick!)
The pool itself is actually located indoors, in a pavilion next to the roof deck, though the transition between pool area and lounge area is seamless.
In the center, a "half oval-shaped, glistening white bar" will serve drinks like the Frida, made with Tanteo jalapeno tequila, fresh watermelon, simple syrup, and lime $11 glass, $44 pitcher, or just a plain old pina colada. Additionally, there will be a menu of light bites (Nantucket Bay scallops, shrimp cocktail, spiced hummus with grilled pita) if you get the munchies.
Or, if you just really want an excuse to call one of the waitresses over. With outfits like that, no one will blame you.
