Imagine the year is 1912: the Republic of China has just been proclaimed, New Mexico becomes the 47th state, and making hats is your trade (best fantasy ever?!). And this is where said hats were produced... at the brand-new-at-the-time, 12-floor, neo-gothic, "store-and-loft" Colony Arcade Building which..

After briefly exchanging pleasantries with the desk clerk/MacBook, enjoy a beverage at their lobby bar, the prohibition-style Winnie's Tea Lounge.
