Best Historic Revamp: Monarch Lounge

View original article from Milwaukee Magazine

Best Historic Revamp

How often do you really seek out a hotel bar? The Hilton Milwaukee City Center’s Monarch Lounge (509 W. Wisconsin Ave.) just might change that. A classic cocktail menu is a plus, but the real draw is the 1920s-era, art deco surroundings. The lounge holds the building’s original crystal chandeliers, floor-to-ceiling mahogany wood panels and 30-foot, previously covered windows that look out on to Fifth Street. At a time when it’s trendy to be retro, it’s refreshing to see the real thing. (CD)

Westbrook to debut fall fashion collection

Original article for BizTimes.com

Milwaukee fiber artist Timothy Westbrook, a former Pfister Hotel Artist-in-Residence and a former contestant on Lifetime’s reality TV show “Project Runway,” will unveil his fall fashion show on Saturday, Sept. 21, in the dinosaur exhibit of the Milwaukee Public Museum.

The show, titled “Paleontology of a Woman,” will feature Westbrook’s fashion creations that have largely been inspired by themes related to dinosaurs and sustainability.

Westbrook has been working on his fall collection with eight student apprentices at his studio, which he opened in the Shops of Grand Avenue following his 2012-2013 residency with the Pfister Hotel.

Included in his fashion collection is a series of hole-punched aluminum can shoes and dinosaur masks similar to the masks of Broadway’s The Lion King.

Westbrook, a native of Wanakena, N.Y., has also teamed up with more than 32 area artists including sculptors, jewelry designers and a music composer to pull his latest fashion collection and show together.

Along with reusing and repurposing old materials to create his fashions, Westbrook will reinforce sustainability at his show by transporting all materials from his studio to the Milwaukee Public Museum by bicycle. Hair and make-up products used on models will be eco-friendly as well.

“Paleontology of a Woman” will kick off at 7:15 p.m. with a reception following at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center beginning at 9 p.m. Cost to attend the show is $50. For more information visit www.paleontologyofawoman.com, and to purchase tickets click here.

The Milwaukee Public Museum is located at 800 W. Wells St. in downtown Milwaukee.

Marcus Hotels to feature Single Barrel Jack Daniel’s for Harley-Davidson Anniversary

Marcus hotel venues, The Pfister HotelInterContinental Milwaukee, and Hilton Milwaukee City Center, have announced they will feature exclusive Single Barrel Jack Daniel’s Whiskey at select food and beverage outlets during the Harley-Davidson 110th Anniversary celebrations.

The spirits were acquired during a June trip to the Jack Daniel’s Distillery by Ed Carrella, general manager at Mason Street Grill. While sampling the single barrel whiskey – a premium class of whiskey in which each bottle comes from an individual aged barrel – he was looking for an overall well-balanced flavor.

“We do not want the whiskey to overpower the guest’s palate,” explained Carrella. “But we also don’t want the whiskey to get lost in a drink. Bold, yet smooth is really what we were looking for – and we found it with the barrel we selected.”

Bottles will be available for purchase at any of the three Milwaukee hotels and dining outlets for $110 for the first bottle and $75 for a second bottle. Additionally, Mason Street GrillLobby LoungeBlu Bar & Lounge,Kil@watCLEAR Bar & LoungezendenMiller Time Pub & Grill, and Monarch Lounge, will be selling commemorative bottles of the select Jack Daniel’s Whiskey for $150 to be kept behind the bar, so they can request a drink made with their own private reserve whenever they visit.

Each of the three hotels will host complimentary tastings of the exclusive Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Whiskey. Jack Daniel’s girls will pass samples at Miller Time Pub & Grill on Thursday, Aug. 29, from 6 to 8 p.m., CLEAR Bar & Lounge on Friday, Aug. 30, from 6 to 8 p.m., and Mason Street Grill on Thursday, Sept. 12, from 6 to 8 p.m.

MILWAUKEE (WITI) — We are just a little over three weeks away from Harley-Davidson’s 110th Anniversary. As many as 150,000 people will be riding into Milwaukee for the anniversary celebration, and that means, it’s all hands on deck for Milwaukee-area hotels!

Scrima says as many as a thousand employees are getting the three hotels ready for the big bash. The Pfister Hotel, Hilton Milwaukee and the Intercontinental Hotel have special events and promotions for all of their guests.
Fifth Street near Wisconsin Ave. will close to host a beer garden and a bikini bike wash, and all their restaurants, like Miller Time Pub, will have a special drink made for Harley fans.

“We had a couple of people go down to Lynchburg, Tenn. to hand-select a single barrel whiskey from Jack Daniels. We have all those bottles available at all our restaurants,” said Scrima.

As for accommodations, they’ve been booked for months, but Scrima encourages interested guests to check with the hotel because there could be cancellations.

“We do have some waitlists we can put people on for sure,” she said.

Outside of the Downtown area, dozens of hotels are still available. Those can be found on the Wisconsin Hotel & Lodging Association website, which is updated weekly.

“Right now, it displays 51 properties within a 2-hour drive. We have it broken out between how far it is between 15 minutes to 2 hours,” said President & CEO Trisha Pugal.

Rooms range from one night to week-long stays, depending on the hotel.

Marcus Hotels & Resorts, which owns The Cornhusker Marriott, said it will open its Miller Time Pub & Grill at the hotel in August.

“To enhance the dining experience, the restaurant, in partnership with world-class brewer MillerCoors, offers more than 25 draft options and over 50 brands of beers in a variety of growlers, yards or flights,” Marcus said in a news release. “Changes to service include staffed certified cicerones (beer experts) who are trained and tested on their beer knowledge, and available to help guests find perfect beer pairings for every menu selection”

The menu features specially crafted burgers, along with lighter, healthier salads, hearty entrees including crab cakes, fish, chicken, steak and a selection of desserts.
