THE FRENCHIE'S NEW POOLHOUSE MAKES A SPLASH W hen you stay at The Frenchie Boutique Hotel in Round Top, you get all the bells and whistles, including a hot tub and pool, personal massages, a fully stocked kitchen, firepits, and Kristin Light's covetable interior design. Now there's another reason to stay: Owner Katy Bader has unveiled The Poolhouse, a restaurant and bar exclusively for guests of The Frenchie. The serene Round Top retreat is bathed in shades of yellow, pink, blue, and white, mirroring the St. Tropez striped umbrellas that flank the pool. Light is abundant; lush banana palms reach toward the sun from a wall of windows, while a vintage palm-shaped chandelier hangs above the fireplace and pineapple-shaped chandeliers illuminate the striped banquettes below. Blush pink makes a play in the artwork as well as in the curves of mid-century molded chairs. The bar is topped by short milk-glass lamps and attended by wicker bar stools. The Poolhouse welcomes hotel guests sev- en days a week, 8 am to 7 pm, with a bar offering The Frenchie's signature libations as well as wine and beer selections and a menu from Culinary Institute of America-trained chef Brenna McBroom, whose brunch and three- to five-course dinners must be reserved in ad- vance. The Poolhouse is perfect for events, as heralded last fall by The Southern Coterie, a networking group for female entrepreneurs that booked the venue's first party. "It was dreamy. Like The Frenchie on steroids," Bader says. The Poolhouse at The Frenchie Boutique Hotel, 311 N.
