The courtyard pool of the Lumen Hotel is surrounded by chaise lounges and waterside cabanas, but you'll need a room key if you want to dip a toe. Soon, that changes. The recently renovated hotel, which just picked up a few Brad Oldham sculptures, announced today that it's extending its pool privileges to the public on Sunday afternoons (noon to 6 p.m.) for the summer, beginning June 23.
The $8 swim fee at Lumen's ultra-modern oasis -- only one dollar more than the F.O.E. charges for its picnic-y lodge landscape -- will include lemonade, valet, swimming and hand-passed appetizers. If you don't mind racking up a tab, there's also a cash bar, cocktail service, and a poolside à la carte food menu at your disposal. Fake vacation anyone?
