Joie de Vivre celebrated the opening of The Epiphany Hotel, a luxury boutique property that breathes new life into the heart of Silicon Valley. The Hotel’s Grand Opening Party took place Tuesday, May 20th, marking the Epiphany as one of only two hotels to debut in downtown Palo Alto in more than a decade.
Guests arrived at the uber hip digs to a feast of never-ending canapés and cocktails by Chef Patrick Kelly of Epiphany’s restaurant Lure + Till. Shaped by the surrounding start-up zeitgeist, the event afforded attendees with a multi-level experience, where guest could partake in all of the hotels offerings from innovative meeting spaces to smart amenities and interesting design elements furnished by design company IDEO. Guests also had access to the Taylor Stitch pop-up shop and a social media bike giveaway from Pure Fix Cycles.
Notable attendees included Marissa Mayer & Zach Bogue, Niki Leondakis (CEO of Commune Hotels & Resorts), Chip Conley (Founder and Former CEO of Joie De Vivre), the property’s architect Rob Steinberg (Steinberg Architects), designer Colum McCartan (MCCARTAN), and Geolo Capital’s John Pritzker and Joy Venturini Bianchi, among many.
