The Hotel Lumen, owned by Headington Companies and managed by Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, announced today the first piece of a multi-phase hotel expansion that included a new three-story addition. The second phase of the expansion, scheduled to be complete in late summer 2012, will include the conversion of the existing lobby and Hillcrest-facing space into a classic diner-inspired restaurant called The Front Room: A Park Cities Diner by Tim McEneny of NL Group and Chef Doug Brown.
The new restaurant and bar, sure to be a gathering spot for hotel guests and Dallas locals alike, will serve three meals a day and feature a modern American menu, espresso bar and handcrafted cocktails. Designed by BOKA Powell, the space will feature retro-chic touches and include indoor and covered courtyard patio seating. The restaurant’s design and décor further articulates the mid-century architecture and attitude of the hotel with key elements that include floor-to-ceiling windows, basalt flooring and walls, a modern Heath ceramic tile accent wall, and hanging globe lights.
The Lumen is located at 6101 Hillcrest Avenue, Dallas, Texas. For more information and reservations, please call 214-219-2400 or visit www.HotelLumen.com.
