Tesserae, the award-winning rooftop bar, and lounge on the top of the Thompson Buckhead, announced it will be opening its doors to the public on May 3rd, 2023. Since debuting in early 2022, the former private (yes, we said private) social club has earned a reputation as one of the city’s most sought-after locations for sipping handcrafted cocktails and rubbing elbows with movers and shakers. This chic and sophisticated restaurant bar may have the best views with its 10-story-high views of the Atlanta skyline.

In response to rave reviews and steadily growing demand, the Thompson Buckhead team has decided to relaunch Tesserae as a lounge, bar, and restaurant concept. This time, they will open to all hotel guests, locals, and Atlanta visitors alike. The Tesserae celebrates the diversity of Atlanta by creating an inclusive space for creatives, innovators, and thought-leaders to network, socialize and blur the lines between work and play.


“We’re eager to continue growing the incredible community we’ve built at Tesserae and excited to build on this strong foundation to attract a diverse audience of individuals from Atlanta and our surrounding cities,” said Donte Johnson, General Manager of Thompson Buckhead. “We’re grateful to Tesserae’s founders, some of the city’s most influential leaders and power players, for helping drive this success, and remain committed to challenging the status quo in this beautiful place where guests can connect, be inspired, and celebrate the best this city has to offer.”

Guests can visit Tesserae with reservations on Tuesday to Thursday from 5:30 PM to midnight or Friday and Saturday from 5:30 PM. to 1:00 AM. Its stellar dining options range from yellowfin tuna tostadas to lobster rolls to sliders. Moreover, their innovative craft cocktails such as Rose Negronis, and Espresso Martinis are always a hit. My personal favorite is the Salmon Chips which hard to share. You can also book space for private events or dinners.
