A new hotel concept champions social change

Eaton Workshop—a combination hotel, co-working space and club advocating progressive ideals—recently opened on K Street. Katherine Lo launched the Eaton brand to embrace those who feel displaced in the current climate. “My vision was to use hospitality as a force for conscious, forward-thinking progress,” says the hotelier, who will soon launch similar projects in Hong Kong, San Francisco and Seattle.

Artists-in-residence stay free at Eaton Workshop and conference space is discounted to organizers and activists. A radio station, cinema and wellness center are part of the mix. The culinary program spearheaded by chef Tim Ma of DC’s Kyirisan features the restaurant American Son, plus an all-day café, rooftop bar and speakeasy.

The existing eight-story structure was transformed by architectural firms Leong Leong and Kengo Kuma. Parts and Labor Design and Gachot Studio—both New York-based—created vibrant interiors, with 209 guest rooms marrying mid-century lines and a bohemian vibe. Rooms start at $180 per night; members enjoy access to co-work areas and other amenities. eatonworkshop.com
