The wait is over! Hyatt Regency Atlanta’s rotating rooftop restaurant, Polaris, has reopened, and we couldn’t be more excited.

This legendary flying saucer restaurant and lounge in the sky has been closed since March 2020, when the pandemic hit. But now it’s back, accepting reservations, and ready to serve you again.

In addition to its spectacular views, Polaris offers contemporary American cuisine prepared with fresh ingredients, including honey raised from one million bees on its roof. Also available are wines and craft cocktails.

“This hotel and this restaurant have such an iconic stature in this city. We opened back in 1967, and there were lines outside the hotel in order to get up to the restaurant,” Hyatt area vice president and general manager Derrick Morrow said, Eater Atlanta reported. “We really have taken our time to open back up because we really wanted to make sure we do it the right way.”

According to its website, Polaris is open from 5-10 p.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays and from 5-11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Reservations for Polaris are required, but now is the perfect time to schedule that next date night. It’s a welcome return for an iconic Atlanta establishment, and the staff at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta can’t wait to welcome you back.
