November 15, 2010Four Seasons Denver – Grand Opening

Situated in the heart of the Theatre and Central Business districts of downtown Denver, and overlooking the beautiful Rocky Mountains, stands the gorgeous new Four Seasons Denver. With grand, open areas covered in beige stone floors and walls with dark wood accents, the interior décor of the hotel is classic and clean but with an edge – Prescriptive Music wanted to give the hotel a musical vibe that mimicked that sleek style. From the lobby, to the EDGE Restaurant & Bar, to the rooftop pool terrace and spa, the programmers at Prescriptive created vibes perfectly suited to each area and the affluent, mature guests occupying those areas.

The Lobby and other public areas of the hotel along with the rooftop pool terrace feature chillout, lounge tracks that put hotel guests and sunbathers at ease. The hotel Spa, which is also adorned with outdoor elements of wood and stone, was unsurprisingly programmed with the relaxing sounds of Nature, along with Asian, New Age, and modern ambient spa music.

Perhaps the most intriguing part of the hotel for guests, visitors of Denver, and the Prescriptive programmers alike is the EDGE Restaurant & Bar. Inspired by Executive Chef Simon Purvis, the restaurant’s menu – which offers breakfast, lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch – includes steak and interesting takes on other regional, seasonal American fare (try the Grilled Rocky Mountain Venison with Wild Blueberry Sausage appetizer) as well as a large selection of wine. The breakfast vibe is intended to gently awaken hotel guests with jazz standards. Moving on to lunch, the feel switches to a cool mix of mid-tempo classic rock greats from the 60s to the 80s, ranging from the Doors and CCR to the Cars and Foreigner. Finally, the dinner vibe is even more mid-tempo classic rock, this time mixed with soul and Motown a la Otis Redding and Marvin Gaye, and mainstream rock like the Police and U2. The EDGE Bar is a perfect meeting place for both hotel guests and Denver dwellers that features a tapas-style menu, local microbrews and a constantly-evolving cocktail menu. The musical vibe at the bar during the afternoon is a mixture of indie and electronic with some better-known adult contemporary and classic rock. And the vibe gets edgier as the night goes on (no pun intended) with plentiful indie and electronic like Broken Bells and Hot Chip, peppered with indie greats of the past like David Bowie and the Cure.

Thanks to the programmers Prescriptive Music, every area of the hotel plays music that tells the story of its setting. Whether you are a local or just passing through, the Four Seasons Denver is a gem not to be missed.
