Tri-Level Eatery Closes From Early October to Late December

While The Westin Peachtree Plaza embarks on the largest window replacement project in the Western Hemisphere, The Sun Dial Restaurant, Bar & View will take a short beauty rest for three months. To expedite The Westin’s 6,350-window replacement project, the restaurant is scheduled to close after dinner on Sunday, October 4 and re-open in late December, pending weather. Guests can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner in 200-seat Café restaurant in the lobby during the renovation period.

“We look forward to ushering in the New Year with a new winter menu and new windows,” said Wassim Takriti, general manager of the Sun Dial Restaurant, Bar and View.

The replacement of the Sun Dial windows, which offer breathtaking 360-degree panoramic views of Atlanta, is a major priority for the tallest hotel in the Western Hemisphere. Damage to the Westin Peachtree Plaza occurred Friday, March 14, 2008 when a 130 mile-per-hour tornado ripped through part of downtown Atlanta and snaked across a six-mile long, 200-yard wide stretch of the city with the Westin in its path. Upon impact, the hotel swayed two feet in either direction, as it was designed to do. The storm initially disabled 320 of the hotel’s 1,068 rooms. Since that time, hotel operations have continued as normal. Eighty-one rooms remain out of service.

The Sun Dial Restaurant, Bar & View is Atlanta’s original tri-level complex with a revolving upscale restaurant, a rotating cocktail lounge, as well as an observatory view level. Situated atop the Westin Peachtree Plaza at 210 Peachtree Street in downtown Atlanta, the Sun Dial offers breathtaking 360-degree panoramic views of Atlanta, live jazz, seasonally-influenced contemporary American cuisine and specialty desserts. The Sun Dial is the ultimate Atlanta dining experience, ideal for special occasions, corporate events, celebrations, and as a place to unwind. Visiting the Sun Dial is an Atlanta tradition and a must see and do for Atlanta visitors and residents alike.
