The historic, but slightly long-in-the-tooth Clermont Hotel situated on Atlanta's busy Ponce de Leon Avenue had seen better days. But it had a lot going for it including a very popular terrace level Clermont Lounge, a one-of-a-kind strip club where celebrities including Bill Murray, Woody Harrelson and Robert De Niro had stopped by when filming in town. The historic preservation experts at Oliver Hospitality, based in Nashville, have made revitalizing beautiful old buildings and smart design part of their mantra. Hotels and restaurants have all been resuscitated by the group, in cities from Atlanta to Nashville to Knoxville. Leaving the beloved local dive the Clermont Lounge intact, but re-doing the Clermont Hotel with an emphasis on retro style has transformed this space into a hipster locus.
