• Restaurant Recommendation: The Black Bass Hotel

    POSTED July 13, 2015

    The Black Bass Hotel has 18th-century charm and room for everyone.

Drive 6 miles north of New Hope and you’ll stumble upon the tiny river town of Lumberville. This charming town embodies the classic Bucks County ambiance—think English village with stone farmhouses stacked high above the river. Anchoring this diminutive town is The Black Bass Hotel. This National Historic landmark has been welcoming visitors since the 1700s. Today, the Black Bass is part inn (there are nine elegant suites filled with antique furnishings and stunning river views), part restaurant (with both a main dining room and a casual tavern) and part event space (three unique spaces). Private dining in the Black Bass is a delightful experience with a room off the main restaurant. The intimate space accom- modates up to 14 guests and shares the same colonial sensibility as the rest of the inn with wide plank wood floors, wrought iron chandeliers, and of course, unmatched river views. The conference room accommodates up to 16, while the downstairs canal room accommo- dates up to 65 guests.  

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.


Baldamar’s location—next to the Von Maur at Rosedale Center—might give the wrong first impression. The hip, fine dining restaurant is a fresh concept for the area, one that could easily fit into a more foodie-centric area. Randy Stanley, owner of 6Smith in Wayzata, calls Baldamar a legacy restaurant that just happens to be next a mall (he similarly describes 6Smith as a restaurant that happens to have a lake attached). “I’ve always liked this part of the Twin Cities,” says Stanley. “I love the thriving, local community.


Sometimess a boardroom just won't cut it for a meeting. When you want to lighten the mood, create a fun atmosphere or invite your team to an elevated happy hour, consider booking space in one of Colorado’s many distilleries. 

From breathtaking mountain views and intimate event spaces to cock- tail-making classes and sampling sessions, distilleries offer a comfortable setting for meetings, events, team-building and everything in between.
