Swanky Remodeled Hotel Honors Atlanta’s LGBTQ+ History With Touching Tribute

This new hotel in Old Fourth Ward carries a lot of history

Wylie Hotel is one of Atlanta’s newest hotels, and recently opened their Southern restaurant inside this swanky safe haven. The 1920s hotel property in Old Fourth Ward hadn’t operated as a hotel in quite some time, and holds a lot of history.

The remodeled historic building has become a modern boutique hotel in the heart of the city. And the owners have touchingly paid tribute to the building’s past life. Reclaiming the name “the friendly hotel”.

The property’s restaurant, Mrs. P’s Bar & Kitchen, is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Offering a comforting Southern menu, head to the hotel’s basement for Atlanta’s hottest restaurant, featuring a gorgeous sunroom and outdoor terrace!

The name of the restaurant is a tribute to a previous bar at one of the hotels that called the building home. Mrs. P’s opened in 1956, and emerged as one of Atlanta’s original LGBTQ+ bars and drag venues. The previous venue faced several police raids, and all of those who regarded it a safe space, were also survivors. Mrs. P’s closed shop in the 1980s, so the venue hasn’t been a hotel for a while. Shortly after Mrs. P’s closure, one of Atlanta’s best clubs took over the space, MJQ.

The menu at the newly opened restaurant features awesome dishes, like their Louisana Blue Crab Spread sharer. Or indulge in their dessert menu. We suggest trying Butter Crack Pie with delicious raspberries and cream!
