The fire pit outside the DEQ Lounge at The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto is where the fabulous meet and enjoy the bar's signature summer cocktail, the Classic Mojito. As the weather gets cooler it's the perfect spot for a hot toddy or two.
An accent wall in this "gothic glam" guest bedroom is covered in wallpaper from Iris Maschek. A ruby-hued bed adds a pop of color but keeps with the room's moody vibe. Lamps from Voila Gallery connect the space to industrial elements found elsewhere in the home. LIghting is dim, setting the tone for a show-stopping space with a modern gothic mood.
The walls of this chic, gothic-inspired guest bedroom are covered in a rustic metallic wallpaper by Vahallan. Contrasting materials add texture and interest, while a fun fur pouf and quotable chair bring playful touches that keep the mood from feeling dark. Dim lighting sets the tone for a guest room the designer calls "gothic glam."
The textured black wallpaper is good for sleeping, but also is great for hiding that TV! We didn't want to take things to seriously so this white Jonathan Adler vase reminds us of that! It's whimsy and charm in this dramatic space makes you stop and smile.
Originally the dresser was just supposed to be sleek and clean without hardware, but addidng this hardware and the metal base took it to the next level. This hefty gothic iron pulls completely transformed it!
What do you get when you combine works from a billion dollar art collection and a decadent, seasonal menu masterminded by French Laundry vet and executive chef Christopher Grossman? You get one of Atlanta's most memorable nights out in the tony Buckhead neighborhood. Atlas, on the ground floor of the St. Regis hotel has been open since 2015 but in spring 2019 adds a gorgeous glassed-in "outdoor" dining room reminiscent of vintage European train stations or Paris's Ritz dining room. There is live music in the Tavern Wednesday through Friday, so giddy dancing and general merriment is likely afoot, next to a subdued main dining room where you can dine beneath a Picasso or a Chagall. Locally-sourced ingredients pay homage to Georgia's red clay bounty and inventive, indulgent dishes like a foie gras jus with agnolotti and black truffles and trout with garlic-braised kale and mushrooms alongside pastry chef Christian Castillo's desserts make for destination dining. Oneophiles should check in with personable sommelier Samuel Gamble who offers more than 80 wines by the glass and can expand your vino knowledge exponentially in an evening.
Currently the only-North American location of the four-star Solis brand, with locations in Ireland and China (and new properties coming in Qatar, Florida and Indonesia), Solis shares an architecture firm, HOK (which also designed Atlanta's 1.6 billion Mercedes-Benz Stadium) , with the equally slick and modern adjacent Porsche Experience Center. Amenity-loaded, the hotel has an indoor pool, on-site gym and free Wi-Fi and two memorable dining and drinking destinations. Overlooking both Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and the Porsche Experience Center track from its open-air rooftop perch, the Overdrive Lounge has a Jetsons-meets-Space Age vibe and chef Derrick Green's memorable bites including tuna tartare tacos you won't want to miss as well as the car-themed (when it Rome) Formula 911 featuring muddled blackberries, vodka and Combier. The equally stylish Apron restaurant also helmed by Ritz Carlton vet Green is more chef-driven and imaginative than your usual hotel spot. Apron also features a dog-friendly patio (recommended when the weather is nice), with both tables and lounge-type seating with an impressive view of the airport flight path. Green's focus on inventive Mediterreanean fare offers up nods to Greece in an oregano-infused chicken and to African foodways in a berbere-accented lamb dish with kale and a luscious, tangine-spiced farrotto. A caramel-poached golden beet salad with goat cheese mousse illustrates Green's desire to blend haute cuisine flavors and ingredients with delicious accessibility. Cocktails and craft beer offerings are imaginative and often feature local distilleries like Old Fourth Distillery and ASW as well as Jekyll Brewery, Terrapin and Hapeville's own Arches Brewery so diners can sample some locavore flavor.
