There probably will be a line to ride the elevator to the top of Atlanta’s best and newest boutique hotel. Once you’ve arrived, you’ll realize why: The stylish design and priceless view are reason enough for the insane popularity of this cabana-style rooftop scene teeming with millennials. But what will truly win you over is the lack of pretension, from Solo cups to canned beers to Astroturf. Bonus: Patrons who dine downstairs at Tiny Lou’s (our Best New Restaurant of 2018) get priority access to the rooftop. 789 Ponce de Leon Avenue, 470-485-0485, hotelclermont.com
