The Manchester hotel is set to open this spring in Lexington, Kentucky’s historic Distillery District.
Envisioned by hoteliers Nik Feldman and Hank Morris, the upscale 125-room retreat will rise on grounds formerly inhabited by central Kentucky’s first registered bourbon distillery. The property will feature soulful interiors, designed in-house, that pay homage to the city’s rich history and rickhouse structures, while also blazing a new path forward.
Beyond the dramatic arches of the Rickhouse Revival exterior, a palette of rich, earthy tones will also channel the landscapes and rolling hills of the surrounding Bluegrass region.
A convivial lobby bar and lounge will serve as the Manchester’s key social hub, along with 140-seat restaurant Granddam. Overlooking downtown Lexington, rooftop bar and lounge Lost Palm will tout an Art Deco-style ethos informed by the horseracing culture of 1960s South Florida.
