W Atlanta -Downtown is one of the hottest new additions to Atlanta’s hotel scene. Located in the heart of downtown it is home to bar and lounge DRINKSHOP and restaurant BLT Steak, two popular night time destinations. We had a chance to get some recommendations from the hotel’s very own concierge, April Maddox, on where to go get a drink and enjoy a night out on the town. Her choices included everything from some of W’s trendy establishments to more unknown, laid back music spots. And as a professional singer for 12 years, Maddox is one concierge who definitely knows her music.
Where do you send visitors when they want to have a drink in the neighborhood of your hotel?
DRINKSHOP and WETBAR. They are two of Atlanta’s hottest bars, and located right here on property. Why go anywhere else?
Where to take a date?
BLT Steak for wonderful food, great atmosphere and quiet. Two Urban Licks because it has fun live music and an unmatched atmosphere. FAB for romantic décor, quiet, and because its an easy walk and Churchill Grounds, which is a great place for live jazz and drinks.
Where can people go for a good local vibe?
Midtown Atlanta bar/restaurant district is the top city area for dining, drinks and partying. All is within walking distance and a short cab ride from the W Downtown.
Where do you like to go out?
