Solís Two Porsche Drive gears up to open Apron and Overdrive

Solís Two Porsche Drive is excited to announce two food and beverage destinations to debut upon the hotel’s opening in November 2017. In addition to 24-hour-in-room dining service, the hotel offers Apron, a full-service restaurant and bar, and Overdrive Lounge, a rooftop bar with hand-crafted cocktails.

Executive chef Derrick Green will run the kitchen at Apron. With 15 years of experience at luxury hotels across the southeastern United States, Green plans to feature a blend of Greek, North African, French, Portuguese and Spanish influences on the restaurant’s dinner menu.

The restaurant, located on the lobby level of the new hotel, will present an inspired take on regional Mediterranean cuisine, including locally sourced produce, aged meats and house made pastas, partnered with wine and beer pairings sourced from across the globe. Chef Green’s signature dishes will include favorites like piri-piri prawns with house made potato gnocchi, grilled okra and Pomodoro; octopus terrinewith Marcona almonds, boquerones, pickled Fresnos, marinated olives, Meyer lemon, Espelette and Romesco; grilled branzino with charred lemon, Piquillo and red onion pepperonata, crispy capers and patatas bravas; and harissa-rubbed striped bass with smoked eggplant mousse, fennel pickle, marinated baby heirloom tomatoes and Chermoula sauce.

Centered around a spacious bar area, Apron will serve a variety of cocktails, wines and local craft beers. Guests in search of an outdoor dining experience will have a front row seat to the action of the Porsche Experience Center and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Smaller groups will be also able to book reservations in Apron’s semi-private dining space enclosed by suspended wine racks.

Also coming soon to Solís Two Porsche Drive, Overdrive Lounge will offer a rooftop experience. In the lounge, experienced mixologists will prepare signature cocktails. Guests of the eighth-floor lounge will also be privy to tableside service and chef Green’s constructed tapas, shared plates and flights of sliders and beverages.

Following in the footsteps of existing Solís Hotels and Resorts destinations in China and Ireland, the forthcoming hotel will showcase 28 suites and 185 guest rooms fitted with contemporary, sports car-inspired décor.

Solis Two Porsche Drive is owned by ACRON AG, a Swiss-based company, vis a vis its United States affiliate, ACRON (USA) LP, in conjunction with development partner Castleton Holdings LLC. Bruce Bradley, owner of Washington, D.C.-based Castleton Holdings, and Atlanta-based developer Scott Condra have overseen the development of the hotel project under their Castleton-Condra LLC
