Food-Centric and Meetings-Friendly Property Debuts in ATL

Part of Marriott’s Autograph Collection, Epicurean Atlanta has traditional event space plus a 2,000-square-foot theater focused on showcasing meal preparation by top chefs.

Set at the intersection of West Peachtree Street and 13th Street in the Midtown district of Atlanta, the 178-room Epicurean Atlanta opened in mid-September with an interesting theme: to be a hub for memorable food-and-wine experiences. However, the 11,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space also make the property feasible for small to mid-sized business meetings.

For such events, the largest formal gathering space is the 3,096-square-foot Grand Cru Ballroom that’s divisible by two, with six breakout rooms on the ballroom’s perimeter. Further, Sky Terrace is a one-acre outdoor space several stories above ground level, set between the hotel and an adjoining office building. That 4,000-square-foot area features a group-event lawn (pictured at bottom) that’s adjacent to the outdoor pool and its bar and grill.

At the front of the room is a state-of-the-art kitchen plus two 86-inch LED televisions project the happenings throughout the space. The theater also has videoconferencing capability to bring in a virtual audience for a culinary demonstration or a traditional business session seeking a unique environment.

It’s also within walking distance of several upscale eateries and art galleries, while the Woodruff Arts Center—home of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and the High Museum of Art—is a five-minute drive from the hotel.

The Epicurean Atlanta is 14 miles from Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, a 25-minute drive.
