Revere Hotel Opens With a 'Vertical Fashion Show'

Yesterday was the 237th anniversary of Paul Revere’s ride through Boston — a serendipitous date for the launch party of the new boutique hotel named after the Patriot (and not the North Shore town): Revere. The 200 Stuart St. location was formerly a Radisson.

To celebrate, organizers sent climbers from Boston Rock Gym repelling down the side of the building in Ted Baker suits and hotel uniforms designed by Mass Art — a vertical fashion show, if you will. Guests sipped champagne and watched the spectacle through binoculars. Models also walked down a runway set up on Revere’s roof deck.

In addition to the deck and rooftop pool, the hotel also features 365 guest rooms, a 225-seat theater/venue, and a soon-to-open “Wizard of Oz”-themed nightclub, the Emerald Lounge.
