ST. LOUIS

The Angad Arts Hotel is gearing up for its opening. The 146-room hotel is accepting reservations for the beginning of November. The property’s opening caps off a five-year effort to rehabilitate the empty Missouri Theatre building, which was constructed as companion offices in 1920 to the former Missouri Theatre. The 12-story building has been vacant for nearly a decade.

An art gallery will greet patrons as they enter the building, offering local art for sale. Take the elevator to the lobby where a 14-foot-tall "chameleon lamp," a 360-degree video art installation, will run images curated by local video artist Zlatko Cosic. A rooftop bar and lounge, the Angad Rainbow Terrace, will be open to the public and serve small plates in addition to drinks. The hotel will feature a ground-floor restaurant affiliated with a celebrity chef, Grand Tavern by David Burke.

Of its 146 rooms, 25 of them will be extended stay with kitchenettes. Event spaces on the top floor as well as a 3,000-square-foot ballroom for dinners and receptions are under construction.
