Arc The. Hotel Grand Opening Party

By Mackenzie Roche | February 7, 2019 | Parties

There was no better way to celebrate Arc The.Hotel’s final phase reveal than with a grand opening party. On January 17th, the Foggy Bottom hotel played host to more than 200 guests who spent the evening mingling and tasting fresh, locally sourced dishes from the hotel’s farm-to-table restaurant, Notti 824. The event highlighted local talent by featuring live music from The Kevin Rose Duo and showcasing local artist Lakshmi Sarkar who drew custom portraits of attendees on hotel room keys. With these imaginative keys, guests gained access to the intimate #UnlockARC sneak peek and witnessed the upscale hotel from an insider’s perspective. The hotel also hosted a raffle awarding several prizes during the event, including free staycations for multiple winners.
