About PUBLIC Hotels
PUBLIC’s fundamental premise is LUXURY FOR ALL. It is built on four key pillars: service, style, unique experience and value. However, it’s not luxury as we traditionally know it, but luxury reflecting a new definition. Luxury is no longer about things or how much something costs. It is not a business classification, a price point or based on scarcity. Luxury is now about experiences and how something makes you feel. Luxury is being democratized and is now for everyone. Popular, Cantina & Pisco Bar, The Roof, two fifteen, and Lobby Bar, as well as the unique entertainment venue ArtSpace, each have their own vibe and personality so depending on your mood, you might end up hitting all on the same night or just one. With lushly landscaped gardens, multiple communal workspaces, and private event rooms, both indoor and outdoor atop the building with jaw-dropping 360-degree unobstructed views of the city, the spaces provide the ultimate in socializing, entertaining, working and even just people watching.
