Earlier this summer, our new friends Dwayne Keller and Brian Ettelman took us on a behind-the-scenes tour of the fabulous 5-star InterContinental Hotel in Buckhead.
We were surprised and delighted by the many eco-friendly features of the hotel, including earth boxes in the garden space (where spices for the restaurant were planted) and the rainwater capture systems used to water the gardens and provide water for the fountains.
Event space at the venue lives up the five-Star billing. While we were there, we happened upon Tony Conway and Kate Stone of A Legendary Event as they were planning Housewives of Atlanta NeNe’s fabulous wedding. We were also privileged to see planners preparing the 11,000 square-feet Windsor Ballroom for a large event for a local accounting firm.
A few weeks after our tour, we attended the AGLCC Awards Gala in the Windsor Room and the folks at Q and A Events had given the room a spectacular chic, modern look for the evening. At the event we were able to sample some of the InterContinental’s delectable dishes.
If you've never been to the InterContinental, you should set a date for a tour, or stop by for lunch, dinner or dessert at the fabulous Southern Art Restaurant & Bourbon Bar.
