The security you expect — wrapped in the CRU Club experience you love.

Spend a relaxing day safely free of the house and peacefully away from it all…

Your “CRU Return” experience is a new and very select by reservation only curated experience for a handful of our favorite guests.

RESERVATIONS ARE BEING ACCEPTED NOW AND HERE. Available seven days a week for CRU members and by reservation only.

Think of it… you and one or a few loved ones, escaping from the daily grind and returning to BOW.  Enjoying a day at your own private table or on the couches.  In the loft or perhaps sitting before the fireplace…

A beautiful Spring day?  Take in the warmth and the vistas and hang out on the patio at your own private umbrella’d tables — Just you and a few.
