Light bites, offering takes on playful comfort foods with an element of surprise, are also served at the bar.

Each month, cloudM will host a variety of events, including Music Mondays with performances from different local artists, Creative Wednesdays with inspirational talks and workshops, and Tasting Thursdays, where different Lower East Side chefs will prepare small bites for bar guests. 

Designed by Amsterdam-based firm concrete, a long-time partner of citizenM, the bar features floor-to-ceiling windows, oversized chandeliers, and colorful Vitra chairs and couches.

cloudM will remain open throughout the year, and is accessible to both hotel guests and the general public.

Over a period of 13 years, Colorado Meetings + Events has hosted two “Best of” award celebrations at the Denver Art Museum (DAM). So it was fun to get back to the museum in January 2019 to hear about and see DAM’s $150 revitalization project underway and experience an exhibition that I’ve been hearing so much about.

 

U.S. News & World Report recently released its “Best Hotels” list for 2019 and 22 of BENCHMARK’s hotels and resorts were named to the list.

Highlighted honors includ three silver badge winners that placed in the top 30 percent of all ranked luxury hotels within a destination. They include Villas of Grand Cypress in Orlando, Benchmark’s newest hotel, La Cantera Resort & Spa in San Antonio, and Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort in Curacao.
