A Toast (...or two...make that four) to Hudson Lounge!

Hello my 'fan fam.' Did ya miss me over the holiday? Awwww, I missed you too! But I'm glad that you understand busy is the celeb Concierge that hithers to and fro in search of hospitality hotness for all of my loyal devotees to soak up. I know you've been waiting with bated breath since Friday so let's get to the good stuff.....








So the event at Hudson Lounge was every bit of chic-ness as promised, and more! Now that it's over, I can show you the elusive golden ticket...without all of the juicy details blacked out. (scroll down to see previous post with invite)


Sumptuous bar bites, killer cocktails and E-X-C-L-U-S-I-V-I-T-Y!! As the invite states, if you weren't a mover and shaker within the Houston hospitality scene, you had to sit this dance out. Of course I was on the list....and so were YOU!! Not just both of my contest winners, Shawn and Kevin, but all of you who will get to see the highlights of the event on my newest vblog segment, "Can YOU Get In?"
















Hudson Lounge's Event Coordinator, Anthony Tafuro, was the perfect host and if I'm not mistaken, I think he even tried to get me a little tipsy. He just had to keep remaking my new favorite cocktail that we used in the interview shot, TCC's Purple Reign, until we got the "perfect color" and he"insisted" that I assist in "disposing" of them so he could "justify costs" for the waste. Even my videographer Andy, at Robot Designs (who I am sure is an actual robot himself) convinced me that he too had to sample a couple of drinks "for consistency sake on video." So you guys make sure to tell me how it tastes when you're w-a-t-c-h-i-n-g the video so I can let him know. (blank face emoticon) Hmmmm.... the whole thing sounded a bit delicious....er, I mean suspicious.

Nevertheless, it worked! And I'll tell you this: Creme de Violet + Grey Goose = 1 extra-smiley Concierge!!! Unfortunately, little did Anthony know I am such a cheap date that I would have given them a stellar recommendation after the very 1st drink. Lol! But lucky for them--my then, alcohol-impared judgement aside--they really do have one of the sexiet luxe-lounges that Houston has ever seen....and it takes alot to impress me.
 
Hudson Lounge is an understated urban oasis in the heart of Houston. Serene, sophisticated, and subtly swank, you are welcome to relax on their beautiful patios, sidle up to their sleek marble bars, or groove to the beats of their carefully curated sounds while you sip cocktails or enjoy one of their delicious small dishes.


It was a million degrees and I swear they found a way to manufacture their own beach breeze in the middle courtyard, between the fabulous front bar and the secluded rear pavilion. But hey, don't take my word for it. The proof is in the (HD) pudding! As always, I let you be the judge.
