February Events

There are so many things to do in this great city and the Artmore Midtown Atlanta Hotel is in the middle of all the action. Only for a limited time will there be such amazing performances at the Fox Theatre such as the amazing comedian, Louis C.K. (February 2nd) and iconic musicals such as Flashdance (February 5th through 10th) and Fela! (February 28th through March 3rd) Not to mention that the Artmore Hotel is only a short 5 minutes away from the Fox Theatre.

Speaking of music, if you would rather go to a concert, there are many musical acts coming to town such as the Georgia State University Symphony Orchestra at the Rialto Center (February 10th through March 3rd), Corey Smith at The Tabernacle (February 23rd), and the one and only Bon Jovi will be at the Philips Arena on February 27th.

Valentine’s Day is also coming up. What better way to spend it than with a relaxing getaway to Valentines in the Garden at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, followed by a romantic night at The Artmore Hotel. All of this leading up to a day at the Theatre with the renowned Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre at the Fox – the perfect gift for that special someone.

 

The Producers at Fox Theatre

The Producers is coming back to the stage after an 8 year absence. This big, comedic Broadway Musical is a record winner of 12 Tony Awards. This play, written by Mel Brooks, has set the bar for in-your-face-humor and has proclaimed itself as an “equal opportunity offender.” Co-written by Thomas Meehan, the writer of Annie, this is sure to be the theater event of the year.

Returning to Atlanta’s Fox Theatre Friday 25th through the 31st, join Max Bailystock and Leo Bloom in their adventure to create the most infamous Broadway dud and make millions of dollars in the process. The only thing that could go wrong for these two is if the play turns out to be a phenomenal sensation. Through this chaotic adventure, these two unlikely acquaintances become friends while encountering hilarious hijinks on the way to success.

You can turn this fabulous night at the theater into a remarkable weekend getaway by staying at the Artmore Midtown Atlanta Hotel and taking in all this city has to offer. Only 5 minutes from the Fox Theatre, you would be right in the middle of the cultural hub of the city. Pay a visit to the High Museum which is merely a short walk from the hotel. Afterward, enjoy fine dining and shopping at Atlantic Station, also just a few blocks from the hotel. And at night, wind down around a fire pit with a drink from our studio lounge. This will surely be a getaway to remember.

Battle of the Bands

Attention music enthusiasts! There are only nine days to go until the biggest marching band event in the nation! Yes, the Honda Battle of the Bands Invitational Showcase is back in Atlanta next Saturday, January 26 at the Georgia Dome. This year, 8 marching bands from Albany State, Alcorn State, Bethune-Cookman, Edward Waters College, Jackson State, North Carolina A&T, Tennessee State, and Winston-Salem State will be showcasing their unique talent and style for all to see.

Usually these performers are the halftime show, but there is a special treat in store for the Battle of the Bands’ halftime. R&B superstar, Brandy will be performing live during the event fresh after the release of her new album, Two Eleven, featuring the hit single, Put It Down. This showcase will indeed be the event of the year.

Turn the Battle of the Bands event into a memorable weekend at the Artmore Hotel in midtown Atlanta, close to all of the action. We are less than 15 minutes from the Georgia Dome. We are conveniently located next to the MARTA-Arts Center Station, a few short stops from the Dome. Awesome bands…Vibrant boutique midtown hotel – a great combination.

NYE – Midtown Atlanta New Year’s Eve

Looking for things to do in Atlanta this New Year’s Eve?  We scourged the internet for you and found some great events in Midtown Atlanta.

 

First of all stay at your favorite midtown Atlanta hotel:

$179 gets you:

An amazing Artmore room

Free Parking

Bottle of Bubbly

Breakfast for 2

There is a minimum night stay associated with it but just two nights.  You can’t go wrong!  Call us direct to book or for more info and to book online visit here.

A brand new club called Gatsby’s is putting on a “Masquerade Ball” for New Year’s Eve this year. They are encouraging everyone to dress and awarding the best costume $300.  Since prohobition is the theme of this new club, rip out your flapper dress for the new year!

Prefer something a little more low-key? How about heading to Marlow’s Tavern: “starters including Maine lobster and shrimp chowder or the winter tavern salad. The main plate is a grilled veal chop with Canadian milk-fed veal, harvest vegetable and lump crab hash, dried cranberry, beurre blanc, asparagus and cranberry veal demi. The meal is sweetened up with chocolate crème brûlée for dessert.

The meal is $37 per person and is available throughout the evening.”

Visit their website for more information: http://www.marlowstavern.com/.

This is an interesting concept from Halo Lounge: celebrate not by watching the ball drop, instead celebrate by watching money drop….   From what I understand they are dropping $2k from the ceiling and guests will grab as much as they can.  The Ochoa Family is probably hoping you’ll buy another round ;-).

Looking for something specific? Our friendly staff we be delighted to find you exactly what you are looking for!

 

2012 deFINE ART Honoree Fred Wilson

“Life’s Link and Other Projects: A Talk by Fred Wilson, 2012 deFINE Art Honoree,” SCAD Atlanta.

The world’s renowned conceptual artist Fred Wilson is coming to SCAD, Atlanta on February 22, 2012. DeFINE ART 2012 will honor Fred Wilson for his work and influence on contemporary art. Wilson will discuss his overall practice and approach to both his museum installations as well as individual artworks.

Wilson’s installations and large-scale singular works are subjected around social justice of African Americans.   His approach is to examine, question, and deconstruct the traditional display of art and artifacts in museums.  With the use of new wall labels, sounds, lighting, and non-traditional pairings of objects, he leads viewers to recognize that changes in context create changes in meaning.

He will also touch on the process of producing his original exhibition with works from the Walter O. Evans Collection of African American Art at the SCAD Museum of Art.

 This event is free and open to the public! The Artmore Hotel is pleased to offer special rates to all traveling guests attending this event. For more information and availability, contact reservations (404) 201.7555 today!
