the clermont hotel & lounge
student work︎︎︎

the clermont has been an atlanta landmark since 1924. above ground is the swanky, boutique hotel clermont with its rooftop bar and stylish references to history.

below ground is the clermont lounge, a non-traditional strip club where the dancers play their own music on the jukebox, the oldest dancer is in her 70s, people occasionally swallow swords, and the most famous dancer is known for crushing pbr cans with her breasts.

however, the most interesting part of the clermont are its regulars, the people who call this establishment of sophistication and debauchery home.
