Hotel Indigo in Midtown Atlanta


Hotel Indigo Redesigned - Featuring a new bar and bistro.

Hotel Indigo

The “new” boutique-style Hotel Indigo in Midtown Atlanta has been renovated with a Visual Music theme inspired by the Fox Theater and Atlanta’s rich music history, featuring a new bar and bistro.

Highlights include -

Front desk pods that look like the famous organ pipes from The Fox

Incredible murals that recreate the original inspiring graffiti by the lighting techs in the projection room of The Fox

Furniture in the style of treble and bass clefs, and...

A piano bar with lighting that seems like notes dropping from a scale.

With a musical mood and luxurious details like a self-service wine bar, the new Hotel Indigo captures the true spirit of Rock & Roll in Midtown Atlanta.
