The Radical Hotel is a former five-story warehouse in Asheville, NC. The site was originally constructed in 1923 as a distribution hub for two wholesale grocers, Biltmore Wholehearts and Ebbs Bros and Company. The building has been completely rehabilitated and remodeled to create a home for the new 70-room boutique hotel.
In addition to the new rooms, the Radical Hotel will feature a restaurant, a coffee bar and lounge, a rooftop bar and event space, and even a hidden speakeasy on the top floor. James Beard award finalist Jacob Sessoms will oversee all of the food and beverage concepts in the new hotel.
Nestled in the heart of Asheville’s eclectic River Arts District, the Radical Hotel will feature the work of many local artists with large scale installations and murals. The Hotel will even retain some of the original graffiti still adorning its walls. The Radical Hotel aims to seamlessly meld with the surrounding River Arts District, which is home to numerous art studios, bars, restaurants, music venues, and breweries. The former industrial site will serve as a space for the unique art and culture of Asheville to flourish and contribute to the vibrant energy of the burgeoning neighborhood.
