The Renaissance Atlanta Midtown Hotel officially celebrated their opening during a private event on Thursday, September 15th. I had the opportunity to cover the event and I have to say it was quite the Lushworthy affair. Attendee’s sipped on specialty cocktails and various wines while mingling in the Renaissance’s main lobby and outdoor lounge at Rooftop 866. Around 9′ish the doors to the grand ballroom were opened and we were all treated to a…DESSERT BAR! AND MORE COCKTAILS! Yea, I think it’s safe to say that I was a little excited about the whole drinks and dessert part.
Shortly after, the amazing Janelle Monae hit the RLife Live stage for a few songs and although there couldn’t have been more than 150 of us she really gave it her all. She performed a few original songs as well as classics like Stevie Wonder’s “My Cherie Amour” and The Jackson 5′s “I Want You Back.” The Renaissance Atlanta Midtown Hotel really put on a great event and if you plan on visiting “The A” in the near future you really should consider booking a room there. Everyone who worked at the hotel was extremely hospitable.
