New Savoy Hotel sparkles in downtown Nelson
Owned by Jimmy Bundschuh, the man behind the Shambhala Festival, the Savoy has undergone extensive renovations.
The new Savoy Boutique Hotel is starting to shine after its owner has invested heavily, over the last several years, into restoring and revitalizing the once derelict premises.
Owned by Jimmy Bundschuh, the man behind the Shambhala Festival, a new high end restaurant/lounge called the Falls Music Lounge is serving guests along with an accompanying Savoy craft beer brewing facility, the Bloom nightclub operates nightly downstairs, and the opening of a new front-of-the house bistro called Farm Fresh Cafe is slated to take place soon.
The Farm Fresh Cafe promises food "from farm to tummy in the Kootenays. Real food. Real Fresh." Breakfast will served at the Farm Fresh Cafe from 6 am to 11 am. Lunch and dinner will be available until 6 pm.
“For us to be successful in Nelson, we’ll have to cater to different tastes,” Bundschuh said in an earlier Kootenay Business interview. “We’ll bring in a whole variety of genres that the community desires. We’ll try all sorts of things and see what works, what draws the crowds.”
Exterior finishing still needs to be completed as the hotel continues to renovate in phases. The Savoy Hotel is located at 198 Baker Street in Nelson.
