St. Regis Partners with Jazz at Lincoln Center for Unique Arts Programming

Major news for jazz aficionados this week: St. Regis Hotels & Resorts, part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, and Jazz at Lincoln Center have announced a global partnership to create a series of jazz clubs around the world in St. Regis hotels. With a goal of opening five jazz clubs in the next five years, St. Regis and JALC will open the first jazz club at the upcoming St. Regis Doha in April 2012. Through this partnership, unique jazz programming will be developed at St. Regis hotels, led by Wynton Marsalis, Artistic Director of Jazz at Lincoln Center.

Cool touch: We hear that the jazz club at the St. Regis Doha will be similar in character to JALC's Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola at its New York home, Frederick P. Rose Hall.

The partnership is actually historic in nature: Throughout the Jazz Age, The St. Regis Rooftop Ballroom at the New York hotel played host to some of the finest jazz musicians in history (think Count Basie, Duke Ellington and Buddy Rich).
