Pixel Scoop Writes about the RL/SL Hotels!!

From Pixel Scoop:

The Chelsea Comes to Second Life™

Having featured in films such as The Interpreter, Sid & Nancy and Nine 1/2 Weeks, several music hits and numerous books, the Bohemian hub that is the Chelsea Hotel, New York is something of a Mecca for the creative.

More famed for its permanent residents than its guests, the hotel housed Dylan Thomas, Arthur Miller, Stanley Kubrick and Jane Fonda amongst others.

For those of you who don’t know much about the Chelsea, you can take a quick read here.
More relevant to my point however is the fact that his iconic establishment has now been replicated in Second Life. Mykal Skall has built the Chelsea with impeccable attention to detail right down to displaying the same artwork you’ll find in the real Chelsea and replicas of plaques at the entrance.

The Chelsea in Second Life has already attracted the attention of the New York Times and looks set to become a real focal point for the creative arts within Second Life. An impromptu event on Monday saw some twenty poets take to the stage in the Living with Legends lounge, an area that will host numerous poetry and live music events.

For anyone interested in taking part in anything even remotely creative within SL, it is definitely worth checking out available office space for rent. As well as raising awareness of the hotel and its more recent controversial takeover, which saw the popular Bards ousted from management, the virtual Chelsea is already becoming a meeting point for the artistically minded.

Whether you want to share your creativity, simply watch others share theirs or just explore an incredible build, go along and take a look.

The grand opening will take place on Sunday May 3rd at noon SL time. Want to be a part of the opening of this incredible location? Go on then….
