It’s the Freehand, a playful new hotel where you can bunk alongside absolute strangers, or at least catch a drink with them, now open in Downtown from Sydell Group of Nomad/Line Hotel fame. Here’s the slideshow.
Sure enough, you can book a room here with bunk beds for four random people. No, it’s not a hostel. Yes, it’s nicer than any hostel you’d ever picture. Or you can get a normal private room resembling a charming city apartment. Or you could always just...

It’s a scenic chalet under a soundtrack of worldly jazz where you’ll find a location of Flowerboy slinging bouquets and curiosities. And a Nicaraguan coffee spot called Café Integral. Slinging Nicaraguan coffee.

Meaning booze. Tea-infused booze, the specialty of the bar called Rudolph’s, where you’ll share pots of Russian tea-infused gin and tonics from Bar Lab with your comrades.
Kebab it up.
Order the lamb kebabs with a Kefir & Honey cocktail at the Exchange. That’s the lovely corner restaurant that has a Mexican-American/Chinese-American chef cooking Israeli-inspired food.
Yep, another one of those.
MONDAY BONUS: The Most Trumpian bed sheets ever.
