The Boulevard Lounge
The Boulevard Lounge is located above the lobby on the mezzanine level of the Distrikt Hotel. The beautifully renovated space in what was once the chapel is comfortably furnished and welcoming for everyone that makes their way down the Boulevard of the Allies. We are proud to offer signature cocktails that focus on local spirits and seasonal ingredients, as well as a wide selection of beer and wine options.

In addition to our beverage offerings, we are excited to debut a new menu in conjunction with our sister restaurant, or, The Whale.
