Also planned are an indoor and outdoor bar opening on to Randolph’sfamed Restaurant Row; an exquisite 3,000 square foot, multi-use suite available for private social functions and meeting space; an indoor pool; a state-of-the-art fitness center; spa treatment rooms; and a unique rooftop indoor and outdoor bar and lounge.
