The Langham Boston Opens Champagne Lounge “The Reserve”


The anticipated opening of Boston’s latest luxury lounge, The Reserve, is here.

Located in the iconic Langham, Boston, in the financial district, the unveiling of the European-style Champagne lounge marks the end of an eight month $6 million renovation to the hotel’s 6,000 square foot lobby.
The Reserve opened its doors Friday, November 2, 2012.

“The Langham, Boston is a timeless hotel with great historical significance to the city,” said Serge Denis, Managing Director of The Langham, Boston. “With the transformation of our lobby, we worked to preserve that history, blending modern and classic elements to create a visually stunning grand entrance that enchants our guests. The opening of The Reserve, an elegant champagne lounge, provides our guests with a third unique dining and entertainment option within the hotel, which will further enhance their experience.”

Spacious and airy, the hotel’s new grand lobby designed by CBT Architects boasts an open, contemporary floor plan with a dramatic new entrance, welcoming concierge center and stylish reception area. In The Reserve, opulent purple and gold custom-made leather banquets and tailored high-back chairs complement a gleaming white Italian marble floor and dark-wood mixed-height dining and conversation tables that seat 60. Housed in Boston’s former Federal Reserve Bank building, which originally opened in 1922, The Langham is a national architectural landmark.

Executive Chef Mark Sapienza’s menu features a continental breakfast and dining from dawn until dusk with nibbles, light entrees and desserts. Libations include a worldly selection of champagne and wine served by the glass or bottle, along with an extensive list of domestic and imported beer.

“The Reserve was designed to provide a relaxed, traditional setting for our guests,” said Sapienza.
“The light cuisine is the perfect pairing to our global champagne and wine selection, which covers numerous cultures throughout the world.” Starting November 2, The Reserve will serve continental breakfast from 6:30 a.m. to 10 a.m., lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and beverages until midnight. The lounge will open for dinner later commencing late November.

The Reserve is located at 250 Franklin Street, Boston, Mass. 02110.
