Five Reasons to Stay on a Friday

Friday Night Stays

It’s the end of a long week. You’ve worked hard Monday through Friday and you’re ready to relax. Now you need to decide if you want to just go to your usual Friday night spot or if it’s time to try something new. You know what you’re going to get at your familiar spot, but changing it up could be fun, too. (If you go to the right place.)

Beloit was recently named one of the Most Romantic Main Streets by Main Street America, making the town a perfect spot for your next getaway with your significant other. There are many other unique things happening in Beloit that make a Friday overnight relaxing yet eventful. Staying at the Ironworks Hotel on a Friday is the perfect way to end your hectic week. Here’s why:

Live Entertainment

Adjoining the hotel, Merrill & Houston’s Steak Joint is the go-to place for a juicy steak and delicious seafood, and on Friday nights they boast live entertainment. Sip on a Brandy Old Fashioned and indulge in a tender filet while listening to a local band. That is the definition of relaxing entertainment.

The Happiest Hour

When you stay at the Ironworks Hotel, you have access to the Beloit Club through our Member For a Stay privilege. The drinks from the Beloit Club’s Scratch Bar are made with fresh juices and herbs, and they are life-changing. Friday night happy hour offers drink specials and complimentary appetizers that you won’t want to miss. If you’re staying on the first Friday of the month, you can experience the Beloit Club’s First Fridays, which features a live DJ and happy hour specials.

Complimentary Shuttle Service

Take advantage of our shuttle service to avoid drinking and driving. If you’re planning on having a few drinks at happy hour or dinner, the shuttle service can drop you off and pick you up from your endeavors within a 10-mile radius. After working hard all week, now is your time to unwind, so we can deal with the traffic and directions.

Farmer’s Market

Every Saturday from May to October, Beloit hosts one of the best farmer’s markets in the Stateline area. It’s located downtown within walking distance from the hotel, so you don’t have to worry about parking. Enjoy strolling through aisles of over 85 local vendors that carry everything from cheese to skin care from 8am-1pm, then grab a bite to eat at the market or at one of the restaurants downtown.

Customize Your Stay

Whatever the reason for your trip, we have a variety of packages to choose from. From a getaway with your girlfriends to a romantic vacation with your partner, you can choose to add a package onto your stay when booking. (Bonus: we’re pet-friendly!) For a limited time, we have our Date Night Fridays package that includes overnight accommodations, chocolate covered strawberries, your choice of red or white wine or Champagne, and keepsake glasses.

The next time you’re thinking about what to do on a Friday night, book a stay at the Ironworks Hotel and add on the Date Night Fridays package. We’ll welcome you with a champagne toast while our valet parks your car. Treat yourself to chocolate covered strawberries and Champagne (or wine) before a night on the town with your special someone or stay in and relax by the fireplace in your room before an early morning at the Farmer’s Market.

No matter what you decide to do with your Friday night, end it in one of our comfortable beds. Afterall, a hard day’s work deserves a soft place to lay your head.
