The Scoop: Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis begins $1 million renovation of The Lobby Lounge

February 12th 12:02pm, 2013

The Lobby Lounge at The Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis is getting a $1 million makeover. Renovations are already underway at the 4-star, 4-diamond luxury hotel in Clayton to give its lounge and bar a fresh look.

Each Ritz-Carlton property has a theme reflecting that property and the surrounding community. The theme chosen for the renovated lounge and bar at the St. Louis location is “Rhythm and Martinis.” “Rhythm” is a nod to St. Louis’ tradition of music and entertainment; “Martinis” recognizes the Martini-minded cocktail lineup at The Lobby Lounge. According to a press release, the theme “infuses the traditional Ritz-Carlton elegance with renewed energy and the social air of a modern club.”

While the mahogany millwork, classic marble floors and grand chandeliers that have made The Ritz’s lounge a glitzy gathering spot for afternoon tea or an evening cocktail will remain, interior design plans include: a gold granite bar top plus an illuminated bar front with glass and brass panels; an eclectic mix of art deco-inspired furniture, including leather settees and barrel-back lounge chairs; and bold, lattice-patterned carpeting. The hotel’s art collection, a selection of contemporary works – some from local artists – will similarly reflect the Rhythm and Martini theme.

International interior design firm BAMO is overseeing the renovation, scheduled to be completed in April. The Lobby Lounge project is the first phase of a $3 million renovation that will also include The Ritz-Carlton Ballroom and The Restaurant.
