Downtown's 21c Museum Hotel is officially reopening — after 100 days of being closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

The museum hotel and Metropole restaurant will open their doors to the public on Monday, July 6, with health initiatives in place to ensure the safety of their guests. Both the hotel and restaurant will experience limited hours of operation for the time being. 

“The safety and trust of our guests, our team and our community are more important today than ever,” said Shelley Meszoly, General Manager of 21c Cincinnati, in a press release. “We have partnered with top experts to implement new standards of safety and enhanced operational protocols and procedures which are among the most stringent in the hospitality industry. That combined with a phased reopening approach gives us confidence that we can do our part to keep our team and guests safe and healthy.”

The much anticipated seasonal rooftop bar, 21c's Cocktail Terrace, will also be opening this month. Guests can look forward to washing down their city views with a boozy summer slushie on July 15. 

According to the release, Metropole's menu "highlights fresh, summer ingredients including Charred Summer Beans with za’atar ranch, crispy garlic, and sesame or Hearth Roasted Summer Squash with tomato verde, jalapeno, and crispy rice." Menu items, cocktails and wine will all be available for carry-out, and the establishment recommends making reservations ahead of your visit. 

The release outlines the safety precautions they will be taking, including: implementing distancing markers; the addition of hand sanitizing stations; mandatory health screenings for all guests and employees; employees required to wear masks; masks provided to guests; rooms unoccupied 48-hours between guest stays; more frequent cleaning; and providing disinfecting wipes in rooms.
