Westin Hotels & Resorts and Wischermann Partners, Inc., announced the official dining concept for The Westin Jackson: Estelle Wine Bar & Bistro.

Located adjacent to the hotel, the bistro Twill feature modern American fare fused with European influences. During the day it is a café bar, which transitions into a hotspot at night.

“Estelle caters to the creative-minded individual and embraces Jackson’s Southern charm and local culture,” says Mike Burton, general manager of Westin Jackson. “We’re looking forward to contributing to the city’s thriving dining scene and offering a year-round foodie hotspot for guests to gather and unwind.”

Estelle offers sit-down-style breakfast and lunch. The lunch menu offers salads, sandwiches and a small selection of entrees.

The dinner menu includes appetizers, shareable plates and entrees such as the chargrilled tuna, salmon sashimi and grilled fish steaks.

The wine list has approachable options for wine connoisseurs of all levels, curated by Estelle’s seasoned mixologists. The unique beverage program will complement the cuisine with a variety of handcrafted cocktails, premium and craft spirits, and local and regional craft beers and ales.

The Westin Jackson will open late summer 2017 in the heart of Downtown Jackson.

It’s always good to have market data for a glimpse at what’s happening in the meetings and events industry and know there are credentials for professionals to work toward. The Events Industry Council (EIC) has released its 2022 Q1 Global Business Events Barometer earlier this week and announced its inaugural class of CMP Fellows this spring.

 

Event planners often schedule meetings and events in natural places near wilderness areas, at waterfront resorts, and at mountain event spaces. But there are many ways to bring nature into your events by making use of the architectural concept of biophilic design, which can be defined as seeking to engage most people’s innate desires to affiliate with nature in the modern built environment. If you think of yourself as an “event architect,” you can use nature to stimulate the senses. 

 

It won’t be quite the same as ordering a pizza or nachos to be delivered to your front door but getting eats at venues is taking a leap toward convenience with a new collaboration: DoorDash has become ASM Global’s “On-Demand Delivery Platform” partner, launching at ASM Global’s top North American arenas, stadiums, theaters, and convention centers in the coming months. The partnership will allow attendees to skip traditional lines by leveraging DoorDash services to order within the arena for pickup.
