ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwired - Jun 3, 2016) - Renaissance Hotels is known around the world for helping the next generation of business travelers to discover unexpected cultural experiences, and on Thursday, June 16, 2016, the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel will inspire guests and the local community to make time to discover unforgettable evenings with an exclusive event featuring indie-rock artist Emily Henry live in the lobby, followed by a tour of Sehkraft Brewery and Nicecream Factory. The fifth annual Global Day of Discovery will take place simultaneously at nearly 170 Renaissance Hotels around the world.

Spend your hot summer night cooling off with complimentary sips from our local punch bowl while enjoying a live performance from local artist Emily Henry. The evening continues with a ride on the Old Town Trolley to beat the June heat with two refreshing discoveries. First, enjoy a sipping and tasting tour at Sehkraft, Arlington's newest microbrewery. From there, venture to nearby Nicecream Factory to enjoy made-to-order, artisan flavors of nitrogen ice cream. End the evening back on the Trolley with a sunset tour of D.C.'s famed monuments and memorials, before returning back to the hotel. The event begins at 5:30pm.

Renaissance Hotels believes business travel is always an opportunity to discover. This philosophy is described as Business Unusual, by which every stay is designed to defy the notion of "conventional" business travel by helping guests to uncover local, unexpected experiences. At Renaissance Hotels, a guest's trip is about much more than the 9 to 5, it's about making time for the #5to9, with a world of local music, art and culinary discoveries.

Global Day of Discovery's fifth anniversary will kick off with a signature bar ritual centered on local craft beverages curated by the hotel bartender and local beverage experts. The bar ritual is the signal that the 9-to-5 working day is over and it is time to transition into an incredible evening of discovery and celebrate the #5to9.
