Inn at the Black Olive: A place where everyone knows your name
Jack Dwyer, Woody Harrelson, Dimitris Spiliadis, David Blaine, Chrissa Carlson
Welcome to Baltimore’s Inn at the Black Olive, a green hotel with luxury suites and two restaurants that embrace farm-to-table, organic and the raw food movement. With the additional help and guidance of the new owners Jack Dwyer, founder of the Capital Funding Group and award-winning actor, known for his iconic role on Cheers and most recently for True Detective and Hunger Games , Woody Harrelson - the vision of the luxury, ecological full service inn continues being managed by Dimitris Spiliadis.
A dinner was held to kick off this new phase of the Inn at the Black Olive with a multi-course dinner at their rooftop Olive Room Restaurant that benefited Great Kids Farm. Being able to sit down with the new owners one got the sense of respect both Dwyer and Harrelson held for Spiliadis and his vision.
At the press conference it was made clear that Spiliadis’s vision of a green hotel and organic, farm-to-table restaurants would continue with Dwyer guiding where needed. Harrelson would be more behind the scenes and when his schedule permits visiting the Inn at the Black Olive.
