Happy Tuesday Babes!
This past weekend, we stayed at a boutique hotel in Durham, Unscripted, and I wanted to share a little about our stay.
The hotel is located in Downtown Durham, a few minutes away from the Durham Bulls stadium. The property was actually built in the 60’s and the retro pool and decor give this hotel serious charm. I’d heard of the hotel as a hot spot in the summer time with a fab pool, so I was excited to check out what kind of fall events they offered. Spoiler Alert: I wasn’t disappointed.
We arrived Saturday afternoon and were greeted by the friendliest staff with a champagne welcome (always a plus). Check in was a breeze, I always judge a hotel by how painless their check in and out process is. After checking out our room – head to stories to see this – we went straight to the bar.
The bar in the hotel is called The Studio and it’s located right in the lobby. It definitely gets crowded at night, so plan accordingly. For the entire month of December, the hotel is featuring live music. See below for the complete series.
My favorite drinks were the Drink Cider Unscripted (tastes like an adult hot apple juice) and the 14k (see below – it literally has edible gold on top). During the month of December, Unscripted is having private holiday cocktail tastings. There are two dates left for this private event – December 11th and December 18th from 6-8 pm.
After more than a couple drinks, we walked a few blocks to dinner. We ate at Mother and Son’s Trattoria and HOLY GOOD. Probably one of the best Italian restaurants in the triangle. 10/10 recommend.
Sunday morning, we had breakfast at Unscripted’s diner, Jack Tar and the Colonel’s Daughter, and it was yummmmy. They even had homemade donuts and crullers. I had the avocado toast and it was fresh & delicious. The service was fast, the food was good and the coffee was hot – all hallmarks of a good diner.
&&& the hotel has the best selfie mirrors around! Does it get better? If you live in the Triangle and are looking for a staycation or if you are visiting the area, I can’t recommend Unscripted enough. Head to https://www.unscriptedhotels.com/offers_en/ to book your stay.
