The project, “MercyMe Show’tel - Music with a view” will take place on March 5th & 6th, 2021. Originally planned for one night, the first show sold out within 24 hours and prompted enough demand for a full second show.

This unique concert going experience is a unique venue model that is able to easily comply with the local governments COVID-19 rules and regulations. The hotel balcony layout provides a safe social distancing environment with individual bathrooms, room service capabilities, contactless check-in and check-out, and a room to stay the night in. An added bonus is that it also alleviates the risk of drinking and driving.
