MINNEAPOLIS (October 23, 2018) – Loews Minneapolis Hotel is nodding to the past and serving up locally, handcrafted cocktails with The Bellhop Bar by Loews Hotels, a retrofitted steamer trunk packed with bespoke beverages stored in antique apothecary-style bottles, on display in Minneapolis from 5-7 p.m. daily. The Bellhop Bar promotion is available now through mid-January 2019, and allows guests to choose from local, pre-batched libations as well as domestically-produced wine, to be poured, mixed and served on demand.
The Bellhop Bar by Loews Hotels was born out of the success of the brand’s unique beverage concept, The Traveller Bar, which ended its two plus year run in January of this year, and drew inspiration from “the golden age of the cocktail era.” The launch of this promotion continues to signal the traveler past, where travelers would pack their belongings in wardrobe trunks for extended journeys.
Guests are able to walk up to the new The Bellhop Bar and choose from two pre-batched cocktails that use Angel’s Envy Bourbon or Hangar One Vodka. Additionally, a red and sparkling wine are featured, The Count by Buena Vista Winery, which is the oldest winery in the United States and Conundrum, one of the most recognized sparkling wines on the market. Creating a surprise and delight for guests and locals, every night at 5:00pm Loews Minneapolis Hotel will conduct an opening bell ritual to announce the bar is now in service.
“The Bellhop Bar by Loews Hotels provides guests with an interactive experience that provides a nod to the adventures of travelers from eras ago, while offering a uniquely local, and modern spin to classic cocktails,” said Mark Thompson, Director of Outlets, Loews Minneapolis Hotel. “As The Bellhop Bar is a limited time cocktail experience that runs through the middle of January, it is the ideal way to toast to the season of celebrations.”
The featured cocktails at Loews Minneapolis Hotel are:
- Bygone Fashion ($10) - Elevating the original classic from a bygone era, this Old Fashioned is made modern with Angel’s Envy bourbon, Orchard Apricot, demerara syrup, and Bittercube Trinity Bitters, perfect for sipping on a Minneapolis evening.
- Mill City Martini ($10) - From the flour milling capital of the world to a thriving metropolis, the Mill City Martini is as strong as the Bold North. It features Hangar 1 vodka, Plymouth Gin, St. Germain, and Agalima Sour.
