US: Hotel Genevieve, from the Bunkhouse Group, is set to open in spring 2023 in the NuLu neighbourhood of Louisville.
Hotel Genevieve’s name is inspired by a regional type of limestone, Saint Genevieve, which is a key ingredient in bourbon production. Limestone is prevalent throughout Texas too, providing a narrative thread for Austin-based Bunkhouse Group.
The property will feature 122 rooms across six floors, a French-influenced rooftop restaurant and bar, and mini-market offering local produce, snacks and beverages. It is located on Market Street.
Rabbit Hole Distillery is partnering with Bunkhouse and Mountain Shore Properties, the developers of the project, to create an art garden that will help enhance connectivity to the distillery from Market Street.
Architects LLW Architects and ROHE Creative are leading the interiors of the project.
“Our commitment to the communities we enter is genuine, and we intend to celebrate the character of the NuLu neighbourhood, which we love, across cultural programming, ingredient sourcing for the menu, and the selection of regional makers and products in the retail mix,” said Amar Lalvani, executive chairman of Standard Hotels and Bunkhouse Group. “We could not be more thrilled with the collaborative team we’ve created to introduce Bunkhouse to Louisville.”
