Atlanta's Most Unique Restaurant - or so it says. As I said in the post below, it really was a "happening" to eat there. Excellent service, food overflowing the buffet dishes and refurbished quickly, hot and tasty foods in never-ending variety. Sitting on the porch before dinner, eating hors d'ouuvres or popcorn and sipping a "Scarlett", Pittypat's version of a frozen daquiri, while watching old, silent movies on a huge screen was quite an experience. If you click on the top card, you can read it easily.
Left: The Hyatt Regency, a 1000 room hotel with a revolving restaurant on top and outside balconies. The lobby atrium had growing trees, exotic birds in 2-story cages, and glass capsule elevators. The bird cages were fascinating. I enjoyed sitting in the lobby bar and watching the birds fly up into the topmost part of the cages and then come back down to the lower levels, to sit on braches with their friends. It seemed ahead of it's time back then.
Right: Peachtree Plaza, the 70-story glass tower with 1,100 rooms, a tri-level revolving restaurant on top and a 7 story atrium lobby with a lake on the ground floor. Also ahead of it's time - at least to me. Peachtree had a glass elevator that went up and down the outside of the building. One of my kids has a fear of heights, so when we went up in this, she had to stand in the center of the elevator so she couldn't see outside, plus cover her eyes. Just as you get to the top, the elevator goes through the concrete shell that forms the restaurant on top. We all ducked! and then we laughed at ourselves for being scared.
