Join us on Tuesday, May 3 to kick off three successive nights of fun, merriment, music and more to celebrate the official opening of our newest historic hotel, our first in downtown Portland! Tuesday night’s performance features M. Ward, with Corin Tucker Band, The Lord’s Own Choir, and other surprises. For a full schedule of events, visit McMenamins’ website.
The Crystal Hotelbuilding itself has had a long and incredible history since its construction in 1911. Throughout the past century, the site changed hands and names many times, offering a hotel, men’s bath house and night club, among other uses.
The historic hotel will offer 51 lodging rooms, which includes the option to buy tickets to that night’s performance at McMenamins Crystal Ballroom next door. The hotel will also house the Zeus CafÃƒÂ©, a Northwest cafÃƒÂ© offering breakfast, lunch and dinner; Al’s Den, featuring nightly live music and artist residencies; a subterranean saltwater soaking pool and more.
Join us these three nights for a party unlike any other in the history of McMenamins Hotels, Pubs & Breweries!
About M. Ward:
On his seventh album, M. Ward cements his reputation as one of America’s most unique talents. Mention his name to any folk or guitar aficionado and you’ll be met with an avalanche of praise.Over the past few years, he has found an ever-increasing and dedicated audience; his last three albums – Transfiguration of Vincent, Transistor Radio and Post-War, all released on the Merge label – have struck a singular chord among music fans. His deft guitar picking, bar room piano, and voice like drizzled honey have also made him a huge favorite of music critics.
In 2008, M. Ward was part of the duo known as She & Him, a project he began with Zooey Deschanel and whose debut album, Volume One, has enjoyed international success. M. Ward is also renowned for his intricate production work, having helmed not only his own releases but also Jenny Lewis’ much-lauded Rabbit Fur Coat. He has collaborated with some of the world’s best musicians including Cat Power, Norah Jones, Conor Oberst and Bright Eyes, Jim James of My Morning Jacket, and Neko Case.
