The wildly popular Magnolia Brewery in San Francisco’s Dogpatch neighborhood has a new addition: Magnolia Hall, a 6,500-square-foot private event space
connected to the always-bustling brewery and taproom. Just a 10-minute walk from Oracle Stadium, where the Giants play, it’s perfect for a pre- or post-game function and for more formal events, too.

Magnolia Hall offers a blank space for creating events for up to 350 guests standing or 200 seated, and has its own bar, private entrance and restrooms. Full A/V connectivity includes two 55-inch monitors and an LCD projector that has a 20-foot projection span. Six food packages are available, along with planning assistance from Magnolia’s full-service team. Guests with an interest in the craft beer scene can check out cutting-edge brewing techniques involving the city’s first “coolship” (an open-top brewing vessel in which malt and grain cool and absorb elements from the atmosphere before fermentation), as well as a dozen oak foedors (specialized barrels) used to age beer in view of guests. Tours, of course, are available. Magnolia also offers an indoor beer garden space, a semiprivate Brewer’s Deck and several lounge spaces that can be reserved for groups. 
 

In November, Dallas-based Todd Interests opened Thompson Dallas, part of hospitality brand Thompson Hotels. Thompson Dallas features 219 rooms, including 52 suites, two penthouse suites, and two culinary destinations.

 

After a year filled with uncertainty and countless projects and proposals put on hold, growth in any sector of the hospitality industry is always welcome news. But a statewide slew of brand-new hotels? That’s something to celebrate. Here, we spotlight just a few of the new properties offering planners and guests new spots to meet, refresh and recharge.

 

From the exterior alone, the Guardian Building distinguishes itself as an extraordinary place in downtown Detroit. Over 2 million tangerine-colored bricks texture its 40 stories, later to be named “Guardian bricks” by the manufacturer in honor of the project. Although there are more curiosities to be discovered inside, the one-of-a-kind “Aztec Art Deco” style influences the design and materials in the space.
