View of Speakeasy from the Foothills Ballroom at the Hyatt Regency


View of Speakeasy from the Hyatt Regency.

On the 17th floor of the Hyatt Regency, in the Foothills Ballroom, it’s possible to spot the Speakeasy club between 4th and 5th streets. This view is looking roughly north north-west and Speakeasy is on the left side of this picture, highlighted in bright red.

The camera’s lens was set to wide-angle to capture the cityscape. In reality, the Hyatt and Speakeasy are closer to each other than this picture suggests. If I had been thinking at last Thursday’s reunion planning meeting, I’d have photographed a view of the Hyatt Regency from the Speakeasy terrace!

Of course, this view is as the crow flies. It's actually a decent walk to get to the south end of the Congress Avenue Bridge and then walk north to Speakeasy.
