Transport Hilton Honors guests to a different place and time: a classic speakeasy with a futuristic twist, hidden passageways and surprises around every corner.
Construct said speakeasy in a matter of hours within (and without damaging) a ballroom and conference suite on the second floor of the hotel. Integrate existing, immovable chandelier.
A cunning plan was hatched to build the 11-sided mirrored room around the existing light fixture without actually touching it. Considerable trusswork did the heavy lifting while Art Deco paneling kept the surprise a secret until the last moment.
Strategic use of mirrored panels, LEDs and Edison bulbs set the atmosphere while the immersive space and instant bullet-time GIFs gave guests something to talk about and share on social media.
