Although there was no snow on the ground, Hotel Monaco's Stratus Lounge celebrated Christmas in July on Thursday, July 25.

Executive Chef Guillermo Tellez created a delicious menu that included holiday favorites like beef wellington and Christmas-themed cookies. Custom, modern cocktails and a complementary holiday punch, all created by Mixologist Bess Gulliver, were served to thirsty holiday guests. DJ Eddie Tully filled the air with great music as guests, some wearing holiday attire, enjoyed the new 30-foot-long fire place at the Stratus Rooftop Lounge.
