RAPID CITY, SD — For ninety years, The Hotel Alex Johnson has enamored guests with its historic charm and legacy of luxury. July 2, 2018 marks the 90th Anniversary since the downtown Rapid City hotel opened its doors. Hotel Alex Johnson has been managed by Black Hills-based company, Liv Hospitality, LLC, since 2008 and completed a 143-room renovation in 2017.
To celebrate the milestone, Hotel Alex Johnson, along with the hotel’s two on-site dining options, Vertex Sky Bar and Paddy O’Neill’s Irish Pub & Grill, will have specials all month long during July. Take a step back in time with the 1920s inspired cocktail, Bathtub Hooch, which will be available at both Paddy’s and Vertex. Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, customers will receive a complimentary piece of anniversary cake with the purchase of an entrée at both dining outlets. Paddy O’Neill’s will also feature a Bud Reserve special and the exclusive rooftop bar and restaurant, Vertex Sky Bar, will feature a signature cocktail, AJ’s Classic Basil Hayden Old Fashioned.
Immerse yourself in the celebration with Hotel Alex Johnson’s limited-time 90th Anniversary Wine, made and bottled by local Firehouse Wine Cellars. The wine will be available for purchase at the hotel’s front desk and dining outlets. Connect with the hotel’s rich history by following Hotel Alex Johnson on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The social media accounts will be sharing throwback photos and historic facts all month long, plus, they will be giving away two sets of special-edition 90th Anniversary wine glasses.
“We are extremely proud to achieve this milestone,” says Hotel Alex Johnson general manager, Domico Rodriguez. “Ninety years ago, this hotel was built to lodge the railroad workers in the Black Hills area. Nine decades later, Hotel Alex Johnson has been restored to accommodate the hard-working business traveler. This achievement not only marks our hotel’s anniversary but also its legacy of catering to the Guest’s needs. It’s going to be a memorable month at Hotel Alex Johnson. We encourage everyone to come visit and celebrate with us.”
