Hotels aren't usually great spots for locals, unless you're looking for one around the Six Flags area, which interestingly, aren't really there for you to Sleep Inn. Giving you non-shameful, quite awesome reasons to hang in one of ATL's most famous hotels, Twenty-Two Storys.
Opening tomorrow, TTS's the Hyatt Regency's new local-welcoming bar/ eatery, boasting a beer-infused menu plus a grip of brews and ATL-inspired cocktails served amidst full-length windows and booths with built-in beer taps, deriving its name from the building's height (downtown's tallest when it opened in '67), and spelled as such as a shout-out to its "Y"-shaped interior sculpture, which helps explain why this place is so fun to stay at. Almost all edibles include beer as an ingredient, from apps like Terrapin-plum diver scallops and Georgia Brown Ale aged cheddar soup w/ bacon croutons, to breaded-ness like the Lambic-infused onion-jammed Kobe flat iron wrap, and the maple-smoked pork sammy with BBQ sauce made from cracked pepper, which isn't Mad pepper, but'll still make you feel like a Newman. You can build burgers (Angus, chicken, or shrimp) on a biscuit or bun w/ various sauces (root beer BBQ, charred tomato salsa...) and toppings like pecan coffee-smoked bacon; there're also entrees like Negra Modelo-/ lime-brined pork belly tacos and stout-braised short rib, plus desserts including a vanilla float made with ice cream infused with 420 from Sweetwater, proving it's possible to think just about anything is sweet after 420ing.
As for beer-infused beers, they've got crafts like Sweetwater Sch'Wheat, 3 Philosophers Quadrupel Belgian Ale, and 10.5% ABV Gulden Draak Triple, plus house cocktails like the Gent Jack/Cointreau "Olympic Gold", and the peach-garnished "The Storys Classic" -- a pronouncement you'd almost always come away with after spending a night, or at least an hour, on Fulton Industrial.
