    A New Jersey restaurant boasts versatile high-end settings.

Hudson County has welcomed an upscale new venue. The Ashford, a multilevel restaurant and lounge, is set to become a premier event venue. Conveniently located near Jersey City’s corporate hub along the Hudson River, The Ashford boasts several indoor and outdoor distinct meetings and event spaces, along with Jersey City’s largest rooftop. The Parlor, a speakeasy-inspired cocktail bar located on the restaurant’s third floor, can accommodate 100 people and connects to the rooftop. The Ashford’s rooftop also connects to Six26 Rooftop, an LGBTQ space that can accommodate 150 people. The Six26 also has a lounge, which can accom - modate 100 people or 250 with a full buyout. The Study accommodates up to 25 people seated or standing room for up to 65 and provides private access to the rooftop. Unique offerings include an artisanal cocktail program, the option to customize menus and state-of-the-art A/V equipment in each space.

The Parlor features an in-house oyster bar, while the rest of the cuisine is classic American with a Latin twist that reflects the demographics of the area and the heritage of head chef Giancarlo Borletti. Guest favorites include a firecracker shrimp appetizer and, of course, The Ashford’s impressive list of cocktails, which are available for events.

In 1927, Hilton Hotels founder Conrad Hilton said, "Abilene, Texas will be well prepared to handle large conventions and please the most fastidious visitor." Nearly 95 years later, Abilene has fulfilled this vision and is excited to welcome back the Hilton family of hotels in the heart of Downtown Abilene with a recently announced DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

The time is right; the stage is set. Groups are ready to meet face to face again, and the four-star luxury hotel MGM Grand Detroit is ready to welcome you back.

According to MPI’s report “Spring 2021 Meetings Outlook,” three-quarters of meeting professionals predict a face-to-face event this calendar year. And that definitely rings true for Lisa Williams, executive director of sales for the hotel.
