New Hotel with Rooftop Restaurant May Come to Salem
It looks like a new hotel may be on its way to the North Shore, and it would have one of the only rooftop restaurants in the region.
The Salem News is reporting that Lark Hotels is looking to open a hotel in the Newmark Building along the the Essex Street pedestrian mall in Salem, with the 44-room spot having "multiple" eateries, including a cafe on the ground floor and a restaurant on its rooftop deck, along with the possibility of a few bowling lanes and another dining space one floor below the roofdeck as well. If all goes as planned and the necessary permits are approved, construction on the hotel--which is tentatively called Hotel Salem--could begin later this year and may open in the early part of 2017, according to the article.
No other rooftop dining options can currently be found in Salem or in the surrounding communities, though the upcoming Mission on the Bay in Swampscott might include a roofdeck.
The address for this proposed hotel is 209 Essex Street, Salem, MA, 01970.
