The concert is held in Park Tavern which is a tented, air-conditioned event facility with an amazing sound system located inside Piedmont Park. It’s perfect way to wind down your weekend “UNPLUGGED” and admission is FREE!
To show our excitement about being a sponsor and as an effort to show our appreciation to our social media presence; the Artmore will be posting several trivia questions on Facebook & Twitter to give our bookers & tweeters the chance to win cool prizes. So log on to our Facebook page, follow us on twitter and be sure to read the blog on the Artmore’s website. Look for your first trivia question Tuesday, May 21st. Questions will be posted on a weekly basis and winners will be announced via social media as well.
Hope to see you in the park!
We regularly keep tab on our presence online and something that has tickled my fancy a bit is the discovery that when you start typing Artmore Hotel Google offers up the suggestion of “Artmore Hotel Haunted”. If you don’t know what an autocomplete is, take a look below to understand what I am talking about.
Although we have (unfortunately) never heard about guests talking about the hotel being haunted before, apparently Tong Ye, a young woman, was visiting from China had a dream that she interpreted as the hotel being haunted. For more information about this check out her story. You’ll need to translate the page using Google Translate.
I especially loved Tong Ye’s “Haunted” Artmore photo that she shared on her blog:
Have you experienced anything at The Artmore Hotel? Share your stories with us! I will post them all here! I am staying at the hotel next week and I’ll be sure to stay in room 202!
The hotel was at one point an apartment building before being converted into a hotel and has been around since the early 1900’s. If anyone would like to dig up the history on the building I would also be happy to share it here. Want to get in touch or send me a story? Message us on the Artmore Facebook page!
Still nothing from any other guests but I did come across this old announcement of the Artmore being built in Atlanta that I thought was pretty great.
After posting in May still nothing from any guests. So I suppose it is not haunted. My stay was uneventful as well…

Back in 1983 the Dixie Classic Festivals were formed. The festival is open to all performance arts groups including (concert, band, choir and orchestra). This type of open festival is to inspire the growth and artistic expression. Although the festival gives out awards it is purely on a non-competitive basis.They are judged by a group of nationally known adjudicators.
Atlanta happens to be one of the six locations for the festival this year. Hickory High School Orchestra from Chesapeake, VA will be performing in the Dixie Classic Festival on Friday, April 12th. They are staying at Artmore Hotel this weekend and we couldn’t be more excited. We wish them luck and applaud them for their dedication to the Arts. We are sure they will receive many accolades and hope to see them back next year.
