An incredible Italian American restaurant, ultra-exclusive private rooftop club and stunning accommodations are only the start of all that newly bowed hotel Thompson Buckhead has to offer. Joining the impressive ranks of Buckhead Village, the lifestyle hotel promises to be 10 stories of thoughtfully curated experiences brought to life with classic Southern charm. A staycation cozied up in one of the hotel’s 201 residential-style guest rooms is replete with luxury, as no detail has been overlooked. Brought to life by Dallas-based Studio 11 Design, the hotel’s interiors champion thoughtful design subtleties such as area rugs, marble mosaics and chevron-patterned wood flors, all anchored with floor-to-ceiling windows and luxe jewel tones. Guests can enjoy unfettered views of the Atlanta skyline while savoring custom 400-thread-count Sferra linens, Sealy Tempur-Pedic mattresses, D.S. & Durga bath products, oversized signature robes and a locally curated minibar.

No trip to Thompson Buckhead is complete without a meal at Dirty Rascal, the hotel’s anchoring old-school Italian American restaurant. “Growing up in a Jewish American family, my mother would often cook homestyle Italian American food for us several nights a week,” shares James Beard Foundation nominated chef Todd Ginsberg. “The experience gave me the inspiration for Dirty Rascal’s cuisine, which we wanted to keep classic and comforting, while applying a slightly more elevated technique.” In accordance with Italian American tradition, the chef created portions large enough for sharing, delivering a family-style experience. Of note are the ricotta tortellini with lamb bolognese and the lobster frutti di mare. This spring, the chef plans to bring in local English peas for one of his favorite dishes, prosciutto and peas with angel hair, as well as fresh asparagus to be served hot with butter and Parmigiano-Reggiano.

Be sure to stay in a Parlour Suite, one-bedroom suite or the Thompson Suite in order to gain access through the members-only doors of Tesserae, the hotel’s private rooftop club. Complete with a dedicated F&B menu and world-class mixology program by Joe Alessandroni, Tesserae is a destination in and of itself. The culinary program is new American, featuring dishes such as lobster salad with butter lettuce, tarragon and crispy shallots and guinea hen dumplings in a brown butter sauce. Tesserae’s 600 members will have access to a members-only workspace, exclusive events, networking opportunities, independent film screenings and more. Midcentury minimalist furnishings adorn the space, providing the perfect backdrop to get to know other members while drinking in the Atlanta skyline. Says General Manager Lukus Grace, “We’re tapping into the city’s local culture to design experiences that celebrate Atlanta’s culinary and cultural prowess while creating a unique sense of community.” Indeed, Thompson Buckhead promises to add yet another pillar to Buckhead’s robust hospitality community. 415 E.
