Renovations Begin with

Down One Bourbon Bar!

As you are all aware, yesterday we announced plans for an $80 million renovation that includes all public spaces and guest rooms of the Galt House Hotel.

Today, we are excited to share that our nationally acclaimed bourbon bar, Down One, will be the first of our spaces to be renovated.

This afternoon, we’ll close our doors for an anticipated ten-week period while we redesign the space and reimagine our food and beverage menus.

We will open with a celebration, unveiling a fresh, welcoming space, a new culinary experience and hospitable southern service.

Current Down One employees will, of course, be offered opportunities within the Galt House Hotel while these renovations are underway.

Please refer any guest to our other restaurants and lounges within the hotel. Please encourage visitors to experience the Urban Bourbon Trail, which Down One will proudly rejoin in a few short weeks.
