Revelator, the Birmingham-based coffee company which purchased Atlanta’s Octane last year, is opening its next location in downtown Atlanta. This latest Revelator is the coffee company’s ninth Atlanta shop and will open in May in the renovated lobby of the 36-story Centennial Tower located at 101 Marietta Street.

Revelator Coffee has nearly doubled in size since acquiring Octane from the husband-and-wife team of Tony and Diane Riffel in 2017. Tony Riffel now acts as Revelator’s director of retail.

“The incredible momentum happening in downtown Atlanta is undeniable and makes 101 Marietta Street the ideal location for our next shop,” Riffel said via press release. “There are many symmetries between who we want to reach and who works in and around the building, which has become a hot spot for top talent.”

Revelator’s Atlanta team recently refreshed and rebranded the former Octane-Grant Park location which now includes the weekly Korean food pop-up ANJU. The team also opened The Mourning Dove at Shops Buckhead in December.

Other Revelator locations include Westside across from Westside Provisions District, Spring Street at Square on Fifth, Ponce City Market, and the Whole Foods in Chamblee-Brookhaven. Octane still holds onto its name at the original shop on Marietta Street in Westside, the Woodruff Arts Center, and Atlanta Tech Village.
