Hotel Ivy completed its recent multimillion dollar redesign—renovating 136 guest rooms, the corridors and lobby, which now features a new bar called Venetia. The Luxury Collection Hotel showed off its new digs on July 30 at an intimate reveal party. Craft cocktails and small bites were passed, while live music from an electric violin permeated the lobby; dessert was served in Monello and guests checked out Constantine, the basement cocktail bar.
On May 10, the MPI Minnesota chapter celebrated its members and the successes of its 2016-17 year at Union Depot in St. Paul.
