• JW Marriott Nashville Announces Private Park Within the Hotel

    POSTED December 11, 2018

JW Marriott Nashville, located in the heart of downtown, adjacent to the state-of-the-art Music City Center, has announces the addition of The Green at JW, a first-of-its-kind private park in an urban setting. The 13,000-square-foot park will be open to guests of the hotel as well as corporate and social events including receptions, team-building, concerts and charity events. 

The park joins the recently established 10,000 square feet of stylish outdoor space located on the hotel’s pool deck at the Cabana Club. The Green at JW will feature an entry plaza that invites guests to lounge on benches or in the grass and enjoy the temperate Nashville weather in front of a newly-commissioned mural.

"We are excited to bring such a unique offering to the guests of JW Marriott Nashville and the residents of Music City," says Lukus Kindlesparker, general manager, JW Marriott Nashville. "From public outdoor concerts to private event gatherings, we are eager to explore all of the possibilities this impressive outdoor space will bring.”

The 33-story JW Marriott Nashville, the city's first luxury hotel, offers 533 guestrooms, including 37 suites, along with a broad array of amenities, including renowned dining at Bourbon Steak by Michael Mina. 

Several organizations are collaborating on events from January through August 2019 for “celebrate bauhaus100: aspen,” which commemorates the impact of the Bauhaus art movement on Aspen. The theme “Our Legacy, Our Future/WorkPlay-Create” reflects Aspen’s Bauhaus heritage, primarily as it relates to Herbert Bayer, who was a student and a teacher at the Bauhaus, relocated to Aspen in 1946 to design the Aspen Institute and lived in the community until 1976.


The National Association of Catering & Events gathered on Sept. 11 at the Denver Botanic Gardens to commemorate the NACE’s 10th anniversary and provide a glimpse into the future. A panel of several founding members—Monica Cheeks of Hyatt Hotels, Cal Cheney of All Digital Photo & Video, Amanda Michalek of AORN and Brandi Pressgrove of Reckon Creative—discussed how the chapter got started, favorite programs from the past and how networking through NACE has helped grow their businesses and more.
