The Virgin Hotel in Nashville is Now Showing Some Skin

January 26, 2015 at 1:52 PM | by | ()

Now that we know what actually happens inside a Virgin Hotel, we can actually enjoy these newly released renderings for the Virgin Hotel Nashville, opening in 2016.

Construction on the 240-room hotel is supposed to happen this spring and when it's all finished, the property will boast not just a super futuristic look from Atlanta-based BLUR Workshop, (as opposed to the historic bank building look in Chicago) but also a rooftop pool, restaurants, shops, 15 for-sale penthouse residences and, wait for it...a recording studio.

That was to be expected given that the Virgin company started out as a record shop, and this hotel is opening at the start of Music Row. But still, kind of awesome.

Berlin is known for their funky, eccentric, quirky and sometimes, just plain weird hotels but right now, we're crushing hard on this massive pink check-in desk at the Hotel nhow.

We found this snapshot in the HotelChatter Flickr Pool, taken by Ken E. Lee, one of our regular photo droppers. He mentioned that the desk is a work of DJ/designer Karim Rashid who has been populating design hotels around the world with his installations.

Indeed, the nhow, a "music and lifestyle" hotel, was touched by Rashid throughout from the lobby spaces to the guest rooms. Which is fitting considering that Rashid has a musical background as well. Here's some more on the concept of this nhow hotel (there's another one in Milan):

OK, so this news won't be really that exciting if you're a) a former Beatle, or b) indifferent to rock 'n roll. Since that rules out pretty much no one, come get excited with us about an announcement from London's The Savoy that their in-house design team will be heading the renovation process at Abbey Road Studios.

As a result of the new partnership, guests at Fairmont Hotels (which owns The Savoy) will be able to go in and record their own music. Awesome! Also, waaay more sensible (and cost-efficient) than Kanye West's method of renting out an entire floor at The Mercer to work on his Jay-Z collaboration album, Watch The Throne. For starters: Abbey Road has been a functioning, successful recording studio for 80 years. The Mercer, though super cool (and pretty), is, at the end of the day, just a hotel.
