The doors are open once again at Whiskey Blue, the rooftop lounge atop the W Atlanta-Buckhead. Under construction since early September, extensive renovations to the space include a remodeled bar, intricately designed lighting, subway tile, plush leather couches and sectional seating areas. The sleek new look is complimented by a stunning 66’ mural by local artist Chris Veal, adding a bright pop of color to the Buckhead skyline.

The design is centered around Whiskey Blue’s legendary views of Buckhead, Lenox Square, and Midtown. “We are truly excited to present a newly renovated Whiskey Blue to the city of Atlanta,” Scott Gerber, Principal and CEO of Gerber Group said in a press release. “Our entire team has been working hard to ensure that every detail is perfect, and we cannot wait for those who have grown to love Whiskey Blue over the past ten years to experience the new design.” Unlike most hotel bars Whiskey Blue attracts both current visitors and locals alike who are drawn to the stunning views and speciality drinks, earning the lounge status as one of Buckhead’s hottest spots to see and be seen.
Guests can enjoy cocktails such as the Buckhead Spritz, Jalapeño Margarita, and the Troublemaker, go for something classic with a Manhattan or Old Fashioned, or choose from a selection of wine and beer. Small plates including pimento cheese with grilled sourdough, artisanal cheese plates, sliders, and crispy duck tacos are available, and you can even order a cigar right from the bar!
