Located in Atlanta, United States, Marriott Marquis was designed by Thompson, Ventulett, Stainback & Associates. The new design is a reinvention of the space including a dramatic overhaul of the world’s largest atrium. The completion of the Phase 1 work includes the opening of four new food and beverage facilities: ‘Sear’ fine dining restaurant, ‘High Velocity’ sports bar, ‘Pulse’ lobby bar and a new Pool Bar. In addition to these restaurant and bar facilities and an extensive supporting kitchen, additional completed elements include the renovation of the pool deck, Imperial Ballroom and meeting rooms.
The bar creates a gathering place for guests and features contemporary, clean white marble panels, stainless “fin” accents and a white backpainted curved glass top. The structure itself is clad in resin panels that are backlit with Light Emitting Devices (LED) which change color throughout the day to reflect the mood and ‘pulse’ of the property. ‘Sear,’ the signature restaurant of the hotel, creates both a bright and cheery dining experience in the morning and a chic, intimate feeling in the evening with its layered drapery, metal accents and raised platform in the rear of the restaurant to separate the spaces.
