After college in Florida, I moved to Atlanta to work in public accounting for a firm that was located at 235 Peachtree Street. Lunch breaks were spent either in front of the Georgia Pacific Building in line for Barker's hot dogs, at the Library cafe, or in the Cellar of the old Macy's building. I shopped at H. Stockton for my suits, Brooks Brothers for stockings (yep, it was the 80s), and Macy's for shoes, makeup, and gifts. When the "Roberts" as we refer to the sweetest men in the world came into our office and asked us to work on a new branding project and public relations for the old Macy's building, I was giddy.
Of course the restaurants which would occupy the space were a priority for us as well:
A Meehan’s Public House, from 101 Concepts, opens in January. Sweet Georgia’s Juke Joint by Global Concessions, operator of One Flew South in the airport, opens in March. Atlanta has approved valet parking on Peachtree St. for the restaurants.
Stay tuned - we will be posting more leases and announcements.
