Hotel Clermont, Atlanta

Hotel Clermont in Atlanta

Built as the Clermont Motor Hotel in 1924, it served as both a hotel and apartments over the years. It had a number of nightclubs in its lower level since opening, but the scandalous dive bar the Clermont Lounge has hosted locals and celebs alike since 1968. The upper floors fell into disrepair, and the building was sold.

The historic building on Ponce de Leon Avenue opens in May as a boutique hotel, just steps away from the Atlanta BeltLine's Eastside Trail and Ponce City Market. The decor is inspired by both the 1920s, when the hotel was built, and the 1960s, its heyday, with Wes Anderson-esque bunkrooms as well as standard rooms and suites. Hotel Clermont also will have Tiny Lou's, a French-American brasserie, a rooftop bar and, of course, the infamous Lounge.
