New Hotel Mertens is on the pulse of offering new ways for Grand Rapids locals to enjoy the upscale style the establishment has to offer. They are pleased to announce that Haute, their rooftop lounge, will be reopening the first weekend in May. They have just released their new plans for the 2019 season. Here’s what you can look forward to.
When the lounge opens in May, it will be weekends only. By the end of May, hours will extend to seven days a week, weather permitting. The rooftop lounge will be open from 4PM to 11 PM on weekdays and Sundays, with hours to extend past midnight on Fridays and Saturdays. While there are no reservations this year, there will be a buffet lunch on Fridays at 11:30 AM and a continental buffet brunch on Saturdays and Sundays at 10 AM.
Haute will also host many special events. Beginning May 22nd, they will launch a midweek music series called Sun-Set at the Haute, with local DJ Andrea ‘SuperDre’ Wallace. A 4th of July celebration is also in the works this summer.
The lounge will be available for private events as well. They will offer private happy hours to run from 4-6 PM on weekdays. During this time, guests can enjoy the intimate experience of having Haute to themselves, while indulging in the establishment’s fine food and drink. The space will also be available for weddings, anniversaries, and other private events. In the case of rain, events will be moved to their main floor event room aka Fleur de Lis, at no extra charge.
Another exciting development, the New Hotel Mertens’ Brasserie will be extending its hours when Haute opens. It’s late night bar menu will be available until 1 AM on weekends and will feature several delicious bar snacks that are sure to make your mouth water.
Haute originally opened late last summer, but 2019 will mark its first full season. Their team has put in hard work and dedication during the offseason to make this spring launch unforgettable, working intensively with their management team and adding a new chef and chief operating officer. We can’t wait to celebrate rooftop season by heading down to Haute and New Hotel Mertens this upcoming season!
