lifescapes..., a new collection of work by Alexis Chinon, will be unveiled at Room Service on March 22nd. There will be refreshments, including a specialty cocktail using Teroforma 1pt Spirit Infusions (must be 21 years old to partake). Additionally, be the first to see the spring R/S window- a collaboration between Alexis and R/S owner and lead designer Jennie Doran.
The saving grace of winter is the joy felt when you spot that first sprout from the ground (hello little crocuses!!), or the first bud in the tree. Spring always seems to makes winter seem like a distant memory.
By the time June rolls around, you'll start to wonder if winter even existed, as the seeds you start now begin to blossom into the summer harvest. We love the anticipation and excitement of planning and learning from each other- a juicy new variety of tomato, a beautiful type of string bean, or a glorious collection of sunflower- the shared imagination of fruits to come is one of our favorite joys of the season.
We are so privileged to present the 2nd annual Spring Seed Swap, and to collaborate again with The Cleveland Seed Bank- tireless workers in keeping our natural diversity strong and sustainable. There will be a presentation by members of the Cleveland Seed Bank on composting, plenty of delicious refreshments and, most importantly, seeds and seedlings provided by our amazing community of local gardeners!!
We cordially invite you to join us, bring your collection of seeds, seedlings or plant cuttings of all varieties (flowers included!) and share in the excitement that is this most anticipated time of year!!
We know you are on the hunt for the perfect gifts this season- this Saturday, you can shop two of Cleveland's best boutiques, together at ABC Tavern!! Room Service has teamed up with Whiskey Grade to bring you all manner of gorgeous goods for giving this season. So come join us upstairs at ABC, grab a drink or two, and show that gift list who's boss!

Following up on the wildly successful, community-building Spring Seed Swap held last April, Room Service Boutique in Ohio City will present Summer Harvest Fest on Sunday, August 23rd , from 12 – 5 pm. The Summer Harvest Fest will be a chance to share the bounty of many of the individual and community gardens that dot our urban neighborhoods.
The staff at Room Service will transform the Ohio City boutique into a space were gardeners of all stripes can mingle and share tasty bits and beautiful blooms from their gardens. For those inevitably enviable bounties of summer veggies – bring extras to swap. Additional refreshments will be provided by Room Service.
RSVP and share pics of your garden on our Facebook Event!

To celebrate the arrival of spring in northeast Ohio, Room Service will present a Spring Seed Swap at Room Service Boutique in Ohio City, 2078 W 25th St, from 12pm to 5pm. In addition to being able to swap seeds and seedlings with other neighborhood gardeners, the first fifty visitors will receive a “seed bomb” – a small ball of seeds and soil bound with soft clay – containing native wildflower seeds courtesy of Ohio Prairie Nursery (www.ohioprairienursery.com). Kids (and adults) will have a chance to get their hands dirty and make their own seed bombs. Representatives of the Cleveland Seed Bank (www.clevelandseedbank.org) will be at R/S to distribute information and answer questions about the work that is being done in the area to preserve and propagate local, heirloom seeds. Restore Cold Pressed (www.restorecoldpressed.com) will be giving away samples of their raw, organic juice just weeks before opening their new downtown digs. Other refreshments will be served throughout the day.
It's technically not an R/S event (pun intended), but our own Andrew directed and our own Jennie was the art director ...
