Bellyard, West Midtown Atlanta, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel, Now Open

Bellyard, West Midtown Atlanta, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel, nestled in The Interlock, opened to guests today. Operated by Pivot, the sophisticated hotspot boasts 161 inviting, yet contemporary suites and guestrooms.

What is significant about the new hotel?

The boutique hotel’s design immerses guests in the rich history of West Midtown and The Interlock – nodding to the stockyards and railroads with thoughtful touches curated by local artisans and designers, including warm, white oak wood flooring contrasting against dark wood accents, hand-crafted custom suite tables, woven rugs and natural, industrial-style walls and ceilings.

The hotel joins Marriott International’s Tribute Portfolio, a growing global family of characterful, independent hotels drawn together by their passion for captivating design and their drive to create vibrant social scenes for guests and locals alike.

Bellyard’s cocktail-centric, American tavern-inspired eatery, Drawbar, opened alongside the hotel, driven by Executive Chef Christina Wai. The upscale watering hole serves inventive spins on traditional Southern dishes – including Tomato and Ricotta Johnny Cakes, Dragged Through the Garden Frittata and Coca-Cola Short Ribs Toast – using local purveyors and seasonal ingredients. Drawbar will welcome diners for breakfast at 6:30 a.m. on weekdays and 7 a.m. on weekends. Beginning at 4 p.m. each day, guests can enjoy dinner and full access to the bar and lounge. The boutique hotel will also feature an outpost of Saint Germain French Bakery, opening later this month.

What was the vision behind the Bellyard?

“Our vision for Bellyard is a destination that mirrors the soul and surroundings of Atlanta’s West Midtown neighborhood, where both residents and travelers can create genuine connections,” said General Manager Brendan Abraham. “Bellyard embodies a refined, yet approachable escape that replicates the feeling of staying at a life-long friend’s home.”

Suited for nomads and corporate travelers alike, the lavishly appointed hotel is embellished with desired amenities such as approximately 7,000 square feet of versatile indoor and outdoor event space, a round-the-clock fitness center featuring Peloton bikes and an ideal setting among some of the city’s most admired restaurants, retailers and entertainment hubs – including Puttshack, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams and Ormsby’s.

“We wanted to develop a concept that was inspired by a relentless pursuit of discovery, giving a nod to the ingenuity and industrial character of the historic stockyards that shaped the landscape of West Midtown Atlanta. From the materials to the artwork, Bellyard is a destination that reflects the region’s distinct perspective and will ignite curiosity in all those who visit,” said Robyn Novak, AIA, LEED AP, Vice President at NELSON Worldwide.

How was the opening celebrated?

In celebration of its much-anticipated grand opening, the hotel has unveiled Bellyard Debut. A Grand Opening Package, an exclusive guest package available through August that builds upon both the arts-forward culture of West Midtown and the industrial vibe of The Interlock.
The package pampers guests with a custom Bellyard tote bag imprinted with the special Tiny Doors Atlanta installation featured at the hotel; a welcome gift, including offerings from local establishments such as Saint Germain French Bakery, Pour Taproom, Velvet Taco, Savannah Bee Company and East Fork; complimentary cocktails, breakfast and dinner at Drawbar; a private mixology class at the hotel’s bar and lounge; and an immersive activation with a local Atlanta artist.

Why is this new hotel important?

Bellyard implements Marriott International’s enhanced health and safety precautions, including frequent cleaning with hospital-grade disinfectants, social distancing protocols, hand-sanitizing stations throughout the hotel, state-of-the-art cleaning technology and air purifying systems.
