Birthday bash and downtown dreams

Monday, June 13, 2011

If a mid-week beach trip is not in the cards, the Dream Downtown hotel is actually your dream come true.

The hotel is the flagship outpost for Vikram Chatwal Hotels and boasts the first rooftop beach in Manhattan history. Now, enjoying panoramic views complete with a pool, sand and beach chairs, doesn’t require a ride on the Jitney. The Meatpacking district’s new Beach Bar previewed during BFF’s Dani Stahl and Ali Wise‘s joint birthday party.

Downpours and thunder storms didn’t stop guests like Brian Atwood, Fabiola Beracasa, Stacy Bendet, Tinsley Mortimer, Dori Cooperman, Shoshanna Gruss, Ann Dexter- Jones and daughters Charlotte and Samantha Ronson, Alex Kramer, Nicole Mellon, Derek Blasberg and Nicky Hilton from sipping rosemary orange cocktails, dreaming of a sunny summer and cheers-ing to two beautiful birthday girls.
