Atlas Debuts The Garden Room for a Truly Unique Buckhead Experience

By Lauren Finney | November 10, 2019 | Food & Drink


Lush greenery—the living ones were sourced by Boxwoods Gardens & Gifts—and layered textures help transport guests into another world. An Italian artisan created a mosaic interpretation of Gustav Klimt’s unfinished “Portrait of Ria Munk III,” which is a highlight of the space.

It’s been a yearslong wait, but absolutely worth it: The Garden Room at Atlas is finally open. Designed by The Johnson Studio at Cooper Carry, its 100-seat dining room and 24-seat bar are now the crown jewel in Buckhead’s social scene. A 3,000-square-foot solarium, its vaulted glass and steel roof, tree sculpture, and sliding glass windows that open onto the plaza help make it one of the most visually stunning builds Buckhead has seen in awhile. As it is part of Atlas yet its own individual experience, The Garden Room, of course, offers top-notch chef-driven small plates and an excellent cocktail and wine list for the most discerning of patrons used to the highly designed spaces of New York City, Paris and London. Perhaps it should have been named The Secret Garden Room: It’s magical. Start jockeying for your seat at the bar now—it will soar from hidden gem to full-blown nexus of the social scene in no time. 88 W. Paces Ferry Road NW, 404.600.6471,
