There are some of us in the dating trenches who dread Valentines Day, with the attendant hearts and flowers, candy and Cupids—it can all feel just a little much for the unattached among us, and we find ourselves seeking the camaraderie of our fellow singletons, sharing war stories, and keeping our spirits up. It's in that vein that we partner with St-Germain, Chambers Eat+Drink, and Hotel Vitale to present a special evening in the City celebrating one of the most reliable and rewarding kinds of love: the kind shared with friends.
The latest project from entertainment designer Charles Doell of Mister Important Design opened last month at art fair ArtPadSF, and is as amazing as its sign proclaims. Chambers, a restaurant and lounge, is attached to the legendary Phoenix hotel, host of ArtPad and a rest stop for touring bands with a provenance for rock star fun. I took a little tour to showcase the details that make this a standout design.
