In addition to the distractions of Victor Drai-infused nightclubs, guests at The Cromwell will have two ground-floor options for refined lounging, sipping and people watching this spring.
The forthcoming boutique hotel will distance itself from its former lower-tier Bill's Gamblin' Hall origins, with amenities such as the Interlude lounge, part of the 40,000 square feet of upgraded casino floor. While a lounge in focus, one part of Interlude will be given over to "televisions and digital gaming areas." Close to the lounge will be The Abbey, a reserved gaming area featuring three table games and a small lounge area "complete with comfortable seating and a TV." The casino floor renderings hint at a possible heavy rouge, European-bordello inspiration.
For a more boutique-y ambience, Bound will be The Cromwell's lobby bar, inspired by a "Parisian Parlor." Without a traditional coffee shop on property, visitors can pick up beverages and morning snacks, "or return at night for a sexy lounge scene." Arriving guests are invited to "enjoy a cocktail directly following check-in," with Bound conveniently located near registration and across from the concierge desk.
A late-night menu is being created to accommodate diners after Giada De Laurentis's restaurant closes for the evening. The Cromwell promises "unique drink menus and special cocktail hours will also be included in the near future." The entire property still under heavy construction, but is now taking bookings for May 21.
