Our lobby’s story unfolds daily. Note the scent of freshly ground coffee, the sound of joyful friends gathering, and the taste of a signature cocktail - a sensory delight.

Front Desk & Center of It All

Our iconic letterpress art wall by local artist Matt Hutton will welcome you to our front desk with an authentic, Maine-made typographic perspective. Steps away, you’ll find our cocktail bar and lounge, Inkwell—the perfect spot to spend happy hour.

Our News Room lies nestled next to our fireplace and steps away from Inkwell. Harness the bustling energy that fuels our lobby level while still enjoying a private escape in which to think, collaborate, and create.
