A View to Dine For: SKYVIEW ATLANTA
Written by C.B. Fletcher
The iconic Centennial Olympic Park has welcomed the SkyView Ferris Wheel as it’s neighbor for all to experience unbelievable views of the city and food spots that line the Luckie Marietta district. The SkyView Ferris Wheel is a ride in a lap of luxury for all to comfortably ascend up 20 stories in a private gondola with views that capture your breath. This new attraction is a great escape from the world for 15 minutes or more before or after grabbing a bite at one of the unique surrounding restaurants.
You will need a calming twilight ride after downing beers during the game at STATS, where guests pour it up from their own taps and enjoy the view and classic munchies on their rooftop lounge. Feeling a little down after your favorite team lost, create your legacy over at Game-X where high tech games meets old school sportsmanship with a mezzanine lounge and fully stocked bar. You might also be chugging authentic German beer at Der Biergarten! Their on tap authentic German beer and the best wurst in the city will make you take a trip across the world before you take a trip across the sky.
Speaking of a ride across the world, check out Max’s Coal Oven Pizzeria which will submerge you in Italian flavor like their New York Style pizza is engulfed in flames. Munch on everything from pasta to the cannoli of the day! Feeling classy? Take a turn to a new way to enjoy Mexican cuisine in a fine dining setting at Alma Cocina. This Latin sensation will dance all the way to your belly under la luna with traditional dishes revitalized for a new generation of taste buds!
Staying overnight? Be sure come by the one stop shop to eat, sleep, and stare at the sunrise or starlight sky at the Glenn Hotel. This boutique hotel features intimate luxury hotel rooms, succulent American cuisine at Glenn’s Kitchen, and the Skylounge where a cocktail or beer is a compliment to the gorgeous view of the Atlanta night sky.
