A local's perspective on what's essential in Atlanta this month.
Located in the colorful Poncey-Highland neighborhood, this artfully reimagined 94-room boutique hotel is drenched in history and culture. This isn't the first reincarnation for the 1920s building. It's seen all kinds of characters pass through its doors, particularly in the basement's infamous Clermont Lounge. Now, all souls are welcome to dine at the cheeky Tiny Lou's or head upstairs to the play- fully chic rooftop for skyline views, a rum-centric bar and lawn games on the turf. As with most good things, there may be a wait, considering its instant popularity with visitors and locals alike. Bonus: the hotel is adjacent to the Atlanta BeltLine's Eastside Trail, where you may see murals by Black Cat Tips (page 12) or pass the WonderRoot Artist & Maker Market at Ponce City Market (page 15). Take your time.
