SMAK Bar's Bloody Mary at Hotel Madeline
We've started a series of whatís trending in hotels these days: Whatís Out, Whatís In. Do we like what we see? Think it's a dud? You be the judge!
Whatís Out: Drinks Then Dinner
Whatís In: Dinner in Your Drinks
These days hotel bars are getting all fancy with their cocktails. Prize mixologists are like rock stars in the bevvie world. Itís a given now that the best hotel bars make their own syrups and infuse their own spirits, so whatís next? Well, some bartenders are thinking that it may be time to bring back the liquid lunch, although some of these drinks arenít only liquid...
Lanternís Keep (love the name!) at the Iroquois Hotel New York is an intimate cocktail salon located inside the historic Theater District hotel. Here's the kicker--you can only enter the dimly-lit watering hole if the lantern outside the bar is glowing. If youíre there at night and have one-too-many of the Stay Up Late cocktails, you might just want to show up the next day for the Golden Breakfast, made up of gin, lime, cucumber slices, Worcester sauce, hot sauce and the final ingredient--an egg yolk.
If you're heading out to Colorado for skiing this year, at least swing by and check out Telluride's historic New Sheridan Hotel, which originally opened back in 1891 and is slated to reopen on December 20th after a $7 million renovation. Yeah, we know: $7 million doesn't sound like a ridiculous makeover compared to some hotels' billion-dollar revamps, but this hotel has less than 30 rooms to work with.
LumiŤre Telluride is one very confident hotel. Set to open Thanksgiving weekend, the new ski resort has balked at the idea of offering up its fancy new suites at discounted opening prices. Despite the fact that the economy has prompted most of its competitors to do so, LumiŤre hopes to launch its exclusive reputation from the start.
Its owners argue the hotel is in a unique position, situated on one of the last remaining ski-in/ski-out sites in Mountain Village. They also say its one of the few high-end hotels in Telluride to service what is clearly a high-end-seeking clientele.
The accommodations give vacationing families plenty of room to spread out so you should be getting more bang for your buck. At the highest end of the 30-room hotel is a 3,000-plus, four-bedroom suite stacked with a hot tub, fitness room, three decks, fireplace, steam shower, and flat-panel TVs. And just in case the Brangelina clan books a stay, thereís an adjacent private home for rent that dwarfs this behemoth. Regular rooms start at $289.
