Last week, Dee Dee Sides, Gillian Hearst-Shaw, Jack Yeaton, Miceala English and Sarika Rastogi hosted a cocktail fete to celebrate the opening of the lounge space in the luxury WestHouse Hotel called The Den. The space was designed by architect Jeffrey Beers and evokes a feeling of a 1920s gentlemen’s club.

The hotel, which opened in 2013, is meant to feel like a residential NYC building, so when you are a guest, you feel welcomed like you’re #inresidence.
