Jacques and Rakel Cohen of Euro Capital Properties, owners of the Watergate Hotel, celebrated its grand reopening June 14, following a $125 million renovation. Guests included the former senators Bob and Elizabeth Dole, actor Vincent De Paul, William Kennedy Smith and his wife Anne Henry and Ambassador of Equatorial Guinea Miguel Ntutumu Evuna. Check-in was with 1960s-inspired secretaries — complete with typewriters and rolodexes — as a nod to the hotel’s heyday. Open for inspection: The Lobby, Moretti Ballroom, the Next Whisky Bar and Kingfish Restaurant — but, sadly, not the rooftop.
