Lark Hotels announced that the boutique hotel company has entered into a new partnership with New Orleans-based hospitality group Angevin & Co., founded by restaurateur and entrepreneur Robert Thompson.
Since 2012, Lark Hotels has introduced design-forward boutique hotels dotting sought-after vacation towns in coastal cities from the Northeast to California. Restaurateur Robert Thompson is responsible for award-winning culinary destinations and programs across the U.S., including the conceptualization and introduction of the Punch Bowl Social eatertainment concept, opening 20 locations across the country. The pair will introduce neighborhood-centric boutique hotel experiences, centered around placemaking restaurant concepts with imaginative culinary and bar programs.
The inaugural project for the partners is the revival and reintroduction of the Frenchmen Hotel, located on Frenchmen Street in New Orleans, and set to open in the fourth quarter of 2021. The historic property is undergoing renovations to all 27 guestrooms and public areas, including its two bars and outdoor pool deck, before its reintroduction. When the property reopens later this year, the hotel will debut redesigned, contemporary interiors as well as an elevated bar program introducing craft beverages inspired by the jazz music and neighborhood culture of Frenchmen Street.
