Operated by Pivot, the property boasts 161 suites and guestrooms, designed as a nod to the stockyards and railroads in the area with touches “curated by local artisans and designers” like white oak wood flooring contrasting against dark wood accents, hand-crafted custom suite tables, woven rugs, and natural, industrial-style walls and ceilings.

Bellyard’s cocktail-centric, American tavern-inspired eatery, Drawbar, opened alongside the hotel, driven by Executive Chef Christina Wai. The 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.

“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,” Brendan Abraham, Bellyard’s general manager, said Wednesday. “Bellyard embodies a refined, yet approachable escape that replicates the feeling of staying at a life-long friend’s home.”

In celebration of its grand opening, the hotel has unveiled “Bellyard Debut,” a grand opening package available through August 2021. The package includes 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.

Amenities of the hotel include approximately 7,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space and a round-the-clock fitness center featuring Peloton bikes.
