The historic Clermont Hotel is shutting it’s doors amidst reports of several health code violations. According to the AJC, Fulton County’s Department of Health and Wellness has ordered the hotel to shut down by December 31st after finding a slew of dirty linen, old bedding and bed bug stains.
Inspectors also found mold growing on the walls, black water spilling from faucets and broken toilet fixtures. A sign on the door notes that the hotel closed on Dec. 12th, but residents have until Dec. 31st to find new lodging.
Some of you reading this may not know a thing about the Clermont, but that’s OK. The hotel was built in 1924 as an apartment building but was converted to a hotel in 1940. The photo above may seem familiar if you’ve ever visited Dugan’s or drove down Ponce. The lounge *cough* was a spot that earned its reputation as a after hours joint where shady ATLiens went to watch over the hill strippers.
Bubba Sparxx, Killer Mike & Cool Breeze rapped and ode to the “Clermont Lounge” a few years ago and I still bump it on my “A” Pod. Take a walk down memory lane below: (Strong Language): Continue Reading…
Somebody told me recently that I always have “people”…for every problem there is a solution and most likely a contact in my phone. Cool Breeze‘s “Cre-A-Tine” song is a great reflection of me and my circle of friends. As someone who’s been around these parts for quite some time, it’s easy to accumulate a few “people” who’ve been around as well. I must say though… my circle of friends is wide and ranges from corporate CEO’s to school teachers to producers to shady “A”zz hustlers (and everything in between). And they all hold me down and stand by me when I’m in need. I can honestly say I’m a blessed woman.
Shouts out to the Southside! S.W.A.T.s….. STAND UP!
