For most of the Rebel faithful, this bowl excursion became an extended family vacation for the holidays. If we are not at the luxury of staying with family or friends in Atlanta, we are making our home away from home at the hotel.
A great deal of the Rebels will be headquartered at the official Ole Miss hotel: The Hilton Atlanta. For those of the Rebels who may not be able to venture too far for various reasons but still want to enjoy themselves, rest easy because you won’t be traveling too far.
Our evening stop for Taste of the Game is only an elevator ride away for those of y’all at The Hilton downtown. Whether you’re looking to unwind for a few hours after a day on the town or just looking to get out of the room for a bit then I have a place for you.
Head up to the top floor of the Hilton amid the 4AAA diamond restaurant into The Point of View Lounge. You will be sure to find great drinks, company and views, not to mention there is not a cover fee like other rooftop lounges downtown.
This is one of those hidden gems believe it or not and I am sure will be a great place for Rebels to congregate leading up to game time. Oh how could I forget this is also a cigar lounge as well and you know that is a plus in my book. Last call for cigars is one hour before posted closing hours.
If you don’t enjoy cigar aroma no worries this place is still big enough yet intimate to not be engulfed by the cigar crowd. So come enjoy a cigar with me at The Point of View this week. Hotty Toddy Y’all!
