Celebs continue to rock Crimson Lounge

Last month it was movie starlet Lindsay Lohan who blew partygoers away when she casually hung out in Crimson Lounge's deejay booth for several hours with gal pal Samantha Ronson. Last Thursday, it was singer Jewell's turn to shock patrons of the hip hotel lounge when she suddenly broke out her acoustic guitar and started singing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" in the middle of the bar.

And tonight (Sunday), legendary jazz pianist Herbie Hancock—who was in town to headline Saturday's American Cancer Society's Discover Ball—played a secret show at the swanky spot with gifted students from the Thelonious Monk Institute. Who knows who'll be next?!
