Patio parties at Chambers and Longfellow Grill


We know you dig Chambers' roof deck, but don't forget about its Gorilla Bar...

Chambers officially opens its Gorilla Bar for summer this Saturday, May 30 with a "Thrilla at the Gorilla" party, beginning at 7 p.m. They'll have a DJ, specialty drinks (including Grape Ape shots), and the hotel's chefs will be cooking up mini tuna and beef burgers, as well as shrimp and chicken satays on the outdoor grill.

Over the winter, the Chambers apparently transformed its grassy courtyard into a tropical oasis, including private cabanas. We love that giant fire pit on a chilly evening, but remember that the courtyard is also open all day, starting at 7 a.m.

Longfellow Grill plans to host three patio parties this summer, featuring live music and seasonal brews: (Love the patio's bike trail proximity. Still baffled by that golden torch--is it some sort of public art?)
