Andaz Salon and Cultural Insiders Connect to Inspire Both Travel and Creativity

Chicago, Illinois—Reported by Elite Traveler the private jet lifestyle magazine

To continue tapping into the cultural interests of its guests and neighborhood residents, Andaz executed next phase of the Andaz Salon series—a collaboration with The FLAG Art Foundation and the launch of a virtual Andaz Salon venue to connect and inspire creative minds.

The Andaz Salon, which takes place at all nine Andaz properties around the world, delivers an occasion for guests and neighbors to mingle and engage in cultural discussions with the guidance of a unique and locally relevant host. Now, with the newly launched Andaz Salon website, new alliances with The FLAG Art Foundation as well as travel media brand AFAR Media, and a fresh calendar of on-property events, Andaz Salon will bring creative inspiration to even more culturally-savvy travelers.

On December 12,Andaz 5th Avenue welcomed back iconic tattoo and graffiti artist Mister Cartoon who will serve as the hotel’s “Tattoo Artist in Residence” (offering guests the chance to bypass the extensive waiting list to be inked by one of the world’s most sought-after tattoo artists) and on December 18 Andaz West Hollywood presented The FLAG Art Foundation’s first Salon event as an Andaz Cultural Insider.

With a full slate of other projects, including Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht recent collaboration with Dutch arts organization Capital A to celebrate the opening of Amsterdam Art Weekend with a unique Marcel Wanders-curated video-art collection (the largest of any hotel), Andaz has become not just a hotel brand, but a contributing fixture of the world’s ever-widening contemporary art culture.
