Hapeville’s incoming Solís Two Porsche Drive has revealed two dining and drinking options: Apron and Overdrive Lounge. The hotel, restaurant, and rooftop lounge are expected to debut this November.
Apron will be helmed by executive chef Derrick Green, who will serve a menu of Mediterranean fare, aged meats, and fresh pasta using local ingredients. Green seems to have the right idea in regards to what he hopes diners will take away from a meal at apron: “It’s one thing to present a guest with a beautifully plated dish, but if your food can also tell a story by respecting the history of the cuisine — that’s when the menu comes alive,” the chef said in a prepared statement. It sounds like he’s shooting for substance more than style.
Green’s resume includes hotel experience at Ritz-Carlton properties Buckhead; Orlando; and Palm Beach, Florida.
Overdrive Lounge will operate eight stories above street level, offering cocktails and tapas service from Green in an al fresco environment. Live music will regularly be deployed as entertainment.
Solís Hotels and Resorts currently operates lodging destinations in China and Ireland. The soon-to-open Hapeville outpost will sit adjacent to Porsche Cars North America’s Atlanta campus, which includes the Porsche Experience Center and Restaurant 356. It’s located just north of Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
