Tucked inside an item about the closing of the bar Bellocq is news that the Hotel Modern has been sold.
Hotel restaurant Tivoli & Lee closed in March, and Bellocq will follow suit June 20. The hotel’s new owners say they have not chosen a new brand for the hotel. No word on if the hotel will close at all during the rebranding.
Formerly Hotel Le Cirque, the Lee Circle hotel known for its changing light facade relaunched as the Hotel Modern in 2011.
