Nestled on 202 Corcoran Street, a is  a vibrant, community-focused hospitality destination full of color, charm and comfort. Last summer, Unscripted opened it’s doors in this historic location, once the Jack Tar Hotel that operated in the 1960s and true to is former time, Unscripted is designed with timeless mid-century functionality.  The sleek and streamlined architecture is bold yet totally approachable.

–HOW TO UNWIND WITH UNSCRIPTED–

This spring break, I’m sharing tips to UNwind at UNscripted Hotel for a relaxing staycation! As busy creatives finding a place that inspires us while we travel is key. I love finding locations where I can getaway and unwind but still be inspired to create something magical when I return to the office.  Downtown Durham is ON THE GROW but it’s still charming and comfortable enough to explore.  The energy inside the hotel is peaceful. Scattered in the Studio are people on laptops enjoying the fare, reading magazines and enjoying coffee.  The staff is happy to meet each guest and see to their comfort.  So before heading out to explore drop your bags and UNWIND in The Studio, s place for socializing, drinking, hanging out and getting inspired. There’s specialized cocktails for sipping, a lounge area for relaxing, and a range of delicious mains and sides that will satisfy any appetite.

Hang Out!

The Studio is modeled after a “REC ROOM” , talk about nostalgia, I found a backgammon game! The Studio is a great place to have fun in solitude and just relax. Or, grab your friends and play a hand of cards.

READ

One of things I really enjoy about this space is the light during the day.  The comfortable chairs and sofas are the perfect places to read and relax and if you must, go ahead and check your email for a few minutes, there’s wifi :)

EAT

LOCAL! LOCAL! LOCAL! I love that the menu at Unscripted is full of local options.  If you’re not from around these parts and are looking for a spring break option, there’s nothing better than finding a hotel that brings the city to you! In the morning enjoy fresh baked goods from Ninth Street Bakery and at night enjoy brews, ciders and wines from Pour Taproom.  I LOVE the Perfect Guac! It’s reason enough to stay in for the day and watch a little TV.
