Tempo by Hilton's New Moonsong Bar + Café Redefines the Café Experience

Building on its innovative food and beverage offerings around the world, Hilton announced the forthcoming launch of its all-day café concept with help from Bluestone Lane for the Tempo by Hilton brand. Moonsong Bar + Café, which will debut spring 2024 at Tempo by Hilton Louisville Downtown NuLu and Tempo by Hilton Raleigh Downtown, promises to deliver a premium, dawn-to-dusk café experience for guests and a custom, efficient food and beverage solution for Tempo owners. 

“By uniting two leading lifestyle brands, Tempo by Hilton and Bluestone Lane, we have seen great success in providing unique solutions to travelers who strive to find a balance in their travel routines and crave delicious, healthful food and beverage offerings wherever they go,” said Adam Crocini, senior vice president and global head, food and beverage brands, Hilton. “Moonsong Bar + Café leverages the strength of Hilton’s hospitality and Bluestone Lane’s acclaimed coffee recipes to create a unique dining experience. Guests can look forward to enjoying a variety of healthful and satisfying options, transitioning seamlessly from energizing morning meals to relaxing evening drinks, including signature cocktails from the Tempo brand.”

According to Hilton’s 2024 Trends Report, 82% of travelers seek out hotels that feature a noteworthy restaurant while on the road. In that vein, Moonsong Bar + Café will leverage Bluestone Lane’s first-rate recipes and methodologies and Hilton’s signature hospitality to ensure guests’ needs are exceeded at every meal. Designed to transition from the morning’s bright and uplifting energy to a more intimate evening setting, Moonsong Bar + Café will offer guests a wide range of satiating and healthful options, from grilled halloumi breakfast bowls to blackened salmon tacos. The beverage program at all Moonsong Bar + Café outlets will include the Tempo brand’s signature Spirited and Free-Spirited cocktails

"We are thrilled to partner with Hilton to redefine their hospitality food and beverage offerings," said Nicholas Stone, founder and CEO of Bluestone Lane. "Moonsong Bar + Café represents an innovative collaboration that perfectly aligns with the refined tastes of today’s traveler."     

Hilton first partnered with Bluestone Lane, an Australian-inspired premium coffee roaster, café, and lifestyle brand, in October 2021 to provide a unique, on-property food and beverage experience at Tempo by Hilton properties. Tempo by Hilton Times Square, which opened in August 2023, features hearty and healthy breakfast and lunch options designed by Bluestone Lane, while Tempo by Hilton Nashville Downtown features the city’s first Bluestone Lane Café. Reinforced by the brand’s renowned approachable service, Bluestone Lane is known to offer sophisticated, clean, and natural foods with a variety of options for every taste bud and dietary need alongside beverage-forward programming.

"Moonsong Bar + Café is just one of the ways Tempo by Hilton's partnership with Bluestone Lane is brought to life," said Kevin Morgan, global brand leader, Tempo by Hilton. "It allows our owners and Bluestone Lane partners to have flexibility in discovering what healthy, plant-forward dining outlet is best for each property. Whether it's a traditional Bluestone Lane café or an all-new Moonsong Bar + Café, guests will enjoy an uncompromised food and beverage experience at Tempo."
