Fondly and Affectionately proudly presents: A Weekend at Ryde Hotel, their fifth art party inspired by the combination and contrast of West Coast fine art and the seedy undertones of the seemingly unobtainable skate, moto, and van culture.
For just one weekend this spring you can take the road less traveled and tap into the art of escapism. The Ryde Hotel on the Sacramento Delta (HWY 160) was built in 1927 and is riddled with controversy around the time of prohibition including visits from the Hollywood Elite, bootleg booze and a bordello. The hotel with it’s lower level speakeasy will see a reinvigoration of it’s storied past. Imagine the hallways, walls, and walkways of a nearly unaltered and haunted hotel built in the 1920’s embellished with the works of Phil Leonard (Hollister, CA) and Ursula Rose Brown (Seattle, WA).
During the day, shop a carefully curated selection of vendors like Utopian Society (handmade jewelry and hats), Friend of Yours (vintage utilitarian pieces chain stitched on the spot with whatever you want) Speedmasters (modern take on classic motorcycle tees), HH Dry Goods (handmade leather goods) and Leather and Lace Vintage (top notch women’s vintage) to live DJ’s – The Witchdoctor and Space Cowboy. Take a dip in the swimming pool (or the delta waterway just outside the front door of the hotel) and explore restaurants and watering holes in neighboring towns such as Walnut Grove, Isleton, and historic Locke.
At night, experience the full bar and live music in the Speakeasy by Noelle Fiore and The Deserters (Southwestern Honky Tonk), The Gutz (Melodic Hardcore Punk Rock), Chuck Suckit (Backwoods Country Blues, a one-man show on homemade instruments) Glass Bat (Experimental Indie Pop) and pianist Ariel Schneider (Mozart meets Danzig) just before heading up to one of the 34 rooms available for booking or to your tent out on the back lawn behind the hotel with the peacocks.
