Imagine sitting at a communal table under the stars, amid overhanging Persian ironwood trees, a warm fire pit to your left, the fragrance of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg wafting from the trendy Lebanese dining room just steps away. You finish your ground lamb kebab and Arak cocktail, and return to your nearby boutique hotel, an apartment style oasis filled with locally handcrafted furniture. You wake up refreshed, wander through narrow streets bursting with quirky shops, cafes, and restaurants, then decide to take in an art exhibit or see an Indie film at a nearby movie theatre.
Could this be Beirut? Soho? Maybe the Left Bank of Paris? Think again. It’s actually right in your backyard, a local city neighborhood with modern, hip vibes that has beckoned you for quite a while. It’s Fishtown! You’ve heard all of the praise for Fishtown restaurants, bars, and trendy shops. Why not immerse yourself in the experience, and feel like a local by staying overnight in an apartment style hotel? It’s the perfect staycation gift for yourself. The gift certificate is for a one- night stay at any studio-style suite at Lokal Hotel, Fishtown. It includes an Apolis tote bag, Rival Brother’s famous coffee, Lokal “swag” (notebook, pen, etc. ), and a bottle of sparkling wine. When your friends are off to the Caribbean, you’ll just throw your head back and laugh, knowing you’re in for a much more unique experience.
