the Nines Hotel — GRAND OPENING 2008

VENUE: The Nines Hotel   |   GUESTS: 200+

Portland's jewel box hotel opened with a glittering gala that showcased all the best features of the renovated space. The lofty atrium held a bouquet of huge silver balloons, trailing an aerialist who hung from the tethered orbs. The elegant ballroom inspired dancers as Pink Martini played to an enthusiastic crowd. Meeting rooms were transformed into a velvet dark absinthe bar where guests flirted under feather-trimmed lamps. The custom-printed cocktail napkins made stylish souvenirs.
