The Epicurean Hotel brand has announced the arrival of its second property, Epicurean Atlanta, which will open its doors late summer 2021.

Located in the heart of Atlanta’s Midtown neighbourhood, the culinary-centric hotel will feature a signature restaurant, a theatre kitchen and Sky Terrace complete with a café and bar.

Atlanta-based architecture and interior design firm, Rule Joy Trammell + Rubio has been enlisted to oversee the hotel’s design, with plans to create interiors that reflect an urban foodie and wine lovers’ paradise.

The 179-room property, which includes 22 spacious suites, will feature an array of mixed media installations specially curated to highlight the city’s most-beloved landmarks, including dining destinations such as Sweet Auburn Market and Ponce City Market.

Design elements will also pull inspiration from the hotel’s deep-rooted culinary connection with organic tones and textures.

Hanging just below the ceiling in the Grand Cru Ballroom, guests will find three-dimensional wooden art installations reminiscent of an entanglement of apple branches, paying homage to Georgia’s extensive apple production.

At the hotel’s epicentre will be the Sky Terrace, an outdoor getaway featuring a café, bar, resort-style swimming pool and an event lawns, while a signature chef-driven restaurant inspired by a gourmet pedigree will be located on the street level.

Meanwhile, The Epicurean Theatre, will give guests the opportunity to watch, learn and cook with award-winning chefs, star mixologists, noteworthy winemakers and talented artists and will be equipped with a state-of-the-art kitchen in partnership with Sub-Zero & Wolf.

The culinary classroom will hope to attract both local and national talent to engage, entertain and enrich.

“Atlanta’s food scene is on fire and Epicurean Atlanta will bring that culinary interest to the next level,” comments Marc Bauer, General Manager. “We’re looking to build upon what already makes Midtown great and solidify Atlanta as the ultimate dining destination in the region.
