W Hotels has designed a package for the punk enthusiast slash luxury hotel guest. Inspired, of course, by the Costume Institute's Punk: From Chaos to Couture exhibit, the hotel chain has teamed up with Trash and Vaudeville to offer a "punked out" package beginning next weekend.
Starting at $299 per night, punk patrons will score two tickets to the exhibit (err, the Met is pay-what-you-wish, but okay), two drink tickets for a "specialty punk cocktail" at The Living Room (yup), and a Trash & Vaudeville t-shirt that is billed as "authentic," whatever that means in this scenario. The package is offered at four W locations in NYC, as well as the chain's Hoboken branch. 'Nuff said.
