With the demand for unique meeting and event experiences on the rise, Richmond-based Versante Hotel is introducing a convention-defying offering at its 2,500 sq. ft. penthouse lounge. Alaïa, the boutique hotel’s former 12th-floor caviar lounge, is now available as a meetings and events space for hosting everything from corporate events and product launches to private parties, wedding celebrations, and holiday soirées.
One-of-a-kind artwork and design, premium amenities and world-class cuisine are a few of the perks that visitors to Versante Hotel rave about, and this new luxury experience is no different. Alaïa’s sky-high ceilings and dazzling city views create a striking first impression, while its monochromatic colour scheme, bold décor, pin-striped feature wall and spiral staircase radiate elegance.
