At The Candler Hotel

About Us

A NEW ATLANTA FAVORITE

In 1905, Asa Candler—the founder of Coca-Cola—hired two architects to design and construct a landmark building on Peachtree Street in downtown Atlanta. The work of those architects, George Stewart and George E. Murphy, will reopen in summer of 2019 as The Candler Hotel, and its restoration represents a homecoming to Beaux Arts refinement in the very heart of the city. An outward-facing restaurant—named By George in honor of the duo that crafted its space—will be the hotel’s destination dining room.

By George will be open throughout the day, and it will offer a pure, classic cuisine—largely influenced by traditional French cooking—spearheaded by two-time James Beard Award winning Chef Hugh Acheson. To match Acheson’s food will be an extensive wine program helmed by accomplished sommelier Steven Grubbs and keen cocktails from the talented hands of Kellie Thorn. 

Like the hotel’s high marble columns, tinkling chandeliers, and original period elevators, By George will serve as an iconic reminder of a metropolitan polish that exists outside of trends, one that is making its return to Atlanta’s oldest center.

Our Story

HOW IT ALL STARTED

At By George, form lead to function; the unrivaled beauty of the Candler Building demanded a restaurant and cuisine of equally timeless appeal. What started as a simple idea – serving food and drinks for our both our downtown community and travelers being introduced to Atlanta for the first time – developed into our vision of sophisticated executions of classic dishes, an ample offering of French brandies and apertifs, and a welcoming place to hang your hat.
