Converting Old Hotel into Indoor Entertainment Centre. Advice is needed
on Mar 2, 2017 at 6:24:18 pm

Hi! I’m new in this forum and I am very proud that I found it! ☺ Currently working in the hotel development team.

I am living in a town where the city itself is almost dead so it needs some place where its people could spend their time. That hotel is like city’s heart. The problem is that hotel is very old and not usable. Previous investors had a plan to make it into a hotel but the development stopped and that hotel is left now as a ghost in the town.

The plan is to make a hotel into indoor entertainment centre and hotel. It includes bath house underground, 2-floor night club, casino. We thought that to make only a hotel it wouldn’t be profitable so we need to make it into an indoor entertainment centre. The main focus now is on sky bar / rooftop (top floor).

We are trying to get some ideas on how we can implement a concept and make a nice place over there. We imagine the concept to be a cocktail bar, hookah and cigar lounge in the sky bar. We are trying to get as many ideas as possible on how the floor-top can be used to gather a lot of people to spend a nice time.

Another idea was to make hot tub cinema on the top of floor but we got rid of this idea because we have winter and it might be issue for that concept realization.

Roof-top plan looks like:

I took some picture from top floor as well (sorry for only few photos):

These are ideas that could be implemented on the top of the hotel (sky bar: cocktail bar, hookah and cigar lounge, karaoke nights, etc.):

Do you have any ideas? Imagine: If you were this hotel owner, what would you make with floor-top? ☺

I really would like to hear some opinions from the people who are experienced in this type of business and probably are hotel owners. Any people are welcome to offer ideas on top floor concept ideas. I would appreciate for your help. ☺

P.S. Sorry for grammar mistakes as I am from Europe country.

I'm not sure this is the right forum for what you're asking, but I did have an idea about the rooftop.

LED panel flooring under a protective glass top layer, relaying a live image of the ground from a nearby camera location, such that, it looks like the roof is a transparent glass floor suspended however many stories above the ground, with no visible support. Video Trompe-l'œil.

A variation would use a thin intermediary layer of water, and give the impression everyone was walking on water, with crabs and koi fish and etc. underfoot. You could switch this out to a top down view of a Caribbean reef. or a rainforest floor, as seen from the canopy.
