The sensory experience navigates guests' palates through fruit, botanical and earthy flavors
DALLAS, June 19, 2019 /HalcyonTV/ -- Omni Hotels & Resorts today announced the launch of its newest brand wide cocktail menu, Flavor Origins. The program features a selection of craft cocktails organized according to three flavor origins: fruit, botanical and earth. The new menu has a non-traditional format, which features a flavor chart, encouraging guests to explore new flavors.
"The Flavor Origins program is all about cocktail discovery," said Devin Burns, vice president of food and beverage at Omni Hotels & Resorts. "This program, like our other food and beverage initiatives, elevates the guest experience and allows them to discover something new that they may not have tried otherwise. We pride ourselves on the creativity of our programs that evolve flavor preferences, so whether a guest is looking for a classic cocktail or interested in exploring new ingredient combinations, this unique menu guides them through the cocktail selection process in a fun and exciting way."
The menu features 24 cocktails, including two non-alcoholic options, highlighting different flavors, styles, aromas and spirits, giving guests the chance to try a variety of combinations. Throughout the menu, guests will find interesting factoids about certain cocktail elements, perpetuating the theme of discovery and learning. The flavor origin of each cocktail is easily determined based on the menu breakdown, but guests can also experiment and explore the options by referencing the flavor chart. Each cocktail's style is visually depicted on the chart with four quadrants that move from light and refreshing to strong and aromatic and again from comforting to adventurous.
A selection of Flavor Origins cocktails with the respective flavor origin and style include:

Art of the Wild Comes to Life in Paris at the Extravagant Launch of HyperNature, an Event by Perrier-Jouët
PARIS, June 18, 2019 /HalcyonTV/ -- Until 23rd June, Maison Perrier-Jouët is assembling curious minds to take part in an unprecedented dialogue between champagne and gastronomy, revolving around nature. The launch of this week of events took place last night, with hundreds of special guests discovering HyperNature by Perrier-Jouët, a programme of singular experiences curated by the House.
Creative freedom and an unconventional observation of nature have been at the heart of Maison Perrier-Jouët's identity since its very foundation. This enduring bond with art and nature is expressed today through Art of the Wild: the universe as seen by the House to re-enchant the everyday through the presence of vibrant, unbridled nature.
Among the guests at the HyperNature by Perrier-Jouët launch were a number of the House's Artisans of the Wild, an international community of ambassadors, representing a diversity of creative fields from art and design to fashion and food, who embody the House's values. Last night, fellow Artisans of the Wild model Winnie Harlow, British designer Bethan Laura Wood, Michelin-starred chef Akrame Benallal and French contemporary art gallerist, Emmanuel Perrotin were all in attendance, spreading Maison Perrier-Jouët's free spirit. The evening rounded off with an enchanting acoustic set from French indie duo Brigitte.
The extraordinary rooftop setting of Le Dernier Etage in Paris has been infused with the extravagance of Maison Perrier-Jouët's Art of the Wild. For the coming week, the space has been transformed, with reinvented nature asserting itself at every turn and sweeping panoramic views of the city amping up the ambiance as day turns to night.
Throughout the week, a varied programme of workshops, installations, live music and celebrations connecting art, nature, food and champagne will take place as part of HyperNature by Perrier-Jouët. Among them, Maison Perrier-Jouët Cellar Master Hervé Deschamps will be leading exclusive tastings for guests to (re)discover the floral, intricate style that has defined Maison Perrier-Jouët's champagnes since its foundation in 1811. "HyperNature table by Akrame", a harmonious meeting between Akrame Benallal's gastronomy and Perrier-Jouët cuvées, will be open for lunch and dinner throughout the week. Bethan Laura Wood's dazzling, interactive life-sized tree sculpture will offer up a whimsical new champagne tasting ritual, while the aromas of the Perrier-Jouët Blanc de Blancs cuvée will be revealed with an innovative olfactory experience.
HyperNature by Perrier-Jouët is a unique, multisensory opportunity to discover over 200 years of Maison Perrier-Jouët's heritage and an invitation to step into the Art of the Wild universe.
Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts to Expand Bay Area Portfolio with Addition of Second Hotel in San Francisco
Beginning in 2020, Former Loews Regency San Francisco to be managed by Four Seasons following renovations
TORONTO, June 14, 2019 /HalcyonTV/ -- Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, the world's leading luxury hospitality company, has been selected by an affiliate of Westbrook Partners, a privately-owned, fully integrated real estate investment management company, to manage its hotel in the 345 California Center building in San Francisco's financial district. Currently known as the Loews Regency San Francisco, the Hotel will be renamed Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco at Embarcadero in 2020 following renovations.
"With a rich cultural landscape, unmatched culinary experiences and a market strengthened by the region's renowned tech boom, San Francisco is one of the country's most dynamic, thriving cities. Due in large part to these strong market conditions, we're excited to offer guests a second Four Seasons experience, enhancing our portfolio in the Bay Area," says Bart Carnahan, Executive Vice President, Global Business Development and Portfolio Management, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.
Carnahan continues: "We have a longstanding, successful relationship with Westbrook Partners, who are also our partners in the existing Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco, Four Seasons Hotel Miami, and the forthcoming Private Residences at 706 Mission Street. We look forward to building on this strong partnership as we collectively work to enhance the luxury hotel and residential offerings in this great city."
"We are proud to partner with one of the world's most esteemed luxury brands, solidifying our position as the leading luxury lifestyle option in the city," says Paul Kazilionis of Westbrook Partners. "San Francisco is a world-class city that continues to grow at a remarkable pace, and we continue to show our belief in this market and the strength of the Four Seasons brand as this new hotel will be our third Four Seasons branded asset in San Francisco. We also currently own the Four Seasons hotel on Market Street and we are in the process of building and delivering one of the best luxury residential products on the west coast with the new Four Seasons Private Residences coming to 706 Mission Street in 2020."
Housed on the top 11 floors of the 48-storey building (the city's fourth tallest), the Hotel's 155 rooms and suites afford enviable skyline views including the Coit Tower and Transamerica Building, and sweeping views of the Bay, including landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island. Once renovations are complete, the Hotel will also offer an all-day restaurant and bar and a well-equipped fitness centre including treatment rooms. With an entrance at 222 Sansome Street, the Hotel is centrally located in the city's financial district and walking distance to Union Square, SoMa and San Francisco's tallest building, Salesforce Tower.
Renovations will include all rooms and suites, corridors and other public areas, in addition to a new fitness centre. The current hotel will undergo renovations, following which the hotel will be unveiled as a Four Seasons experience in 2020.
Westbrook Partners purchased the hotel from Loews Hotels & Co in May 2019. Loews will continue to manage the hotel throughout 2019.
