Blue


Downtown Phoenix has a Kimpton Hotel called the Hotel Palomar.  If you are not familiar with Kimpton Hotels, they are considered boutique hotels and they tend to be very eclectic in decor and style.  The restaurant at the hotel is called the Blue Hound.  I've eaten dinner there once and had cocktails there a couple of times.  The food is good and the drinks are unusual and fun.  But, what I love the most is blue hound signage…..

….and the blue hound mascot at the door.

I've heard of dogs called Blue but I've never seen one before.

It is a very distinctive mascot!

Great sign! And I love the blue dog at the door! I've not heard of Kimpton Hotels before, so this was especially interesting. I'll be on the lookout for more of them.

At first I thought it was an ad for Blue Buffalo dog food. I like that blue neon on the dog.

The name of the restaurant alone would be enough to draw me in. The dog statue looks terrific!

Well, my all time favorite color is BLUE. Can't go wrong with that.

Kimpton? They are new to me. But I like the fun embodied in the blue dog.

Where is the counter that tells how many visitors you have from different countries? I really wanted to know how many Chad residents have been looking at PDP.

Easy to recognize and probably fun to visit.

The blue dog would make a great companion for Winston (bulldog) who sits at my front door Sharon :)
