There are a lot of rooftop spots in Atlanta, but if you’re looking for one where you can actually meet people, rather than deal with distraught six-year-olds, head to Hotel Clermont. It’s a little more difficult to get into than their lobby bar or the one in Tiny Lou’s, but you’ll be glad you waited when you finally see the view. Head here for a date, when you want to impress clients, or for a pre-dinner drink that happens to coincide with golden hour.
