The Whisky Hotel’s future home, at 1717 N. Wilcox Avenue, was cleared in February making way for the Argentine-American entrepreneur to build his new 134-room, seven-story property from the ground-up, complete with a whiskey fountain in the lobby and, of course, minibars filled with craft selections will be found in each room.

“The Whisky Hotel aims to carve a niche in the growing whiskey tourism industry and plans to do so by providing a unique experience for connoisseurs and amateurs alike,” a spokesperson later told WNLA in an email. “Upon arrival, guests will be served complimentary whiskey in the lobby. Suaya wants to make every inch of this hotel an immersive experience, from the smell and the music to the whiskey sommelier on staff who will help guests expand their palettes.

Suaya is also planning a rooftop restaurant and bar atop the hotel that will resemble a giant greenhouse, with large plants and glass panels offering views over Hollywood. The Whisky Hotel also plans to host whiskey-themed events such as cocktail classes and tastings.

“Owning a hotel is the most romantic thing ever, and Hollywood is the perfect place for it,” Suaya said. Expect an opening in 2022.
