    Paddy’s Irish Pub – Designed and built by Dublin architects, with fixtures and furnishings shipped from Ireland, Paddy’s pub is where you can enjoy Irish music, sample Irish food, and discover the meaning of “the craic.”

    Toast and taste at Louis’ House of Bourbon, a contemporary sports bar serving up craft cocktails, wine and beer in an eclectic setting located on the main level of the Inn atrium. Treat yourself to Executive Chef Ashley’s elevated pub fare while catching the latest sporting event on 15 flat-screen TVs.

    The Chateau Elan Resort wine experience is a must. Meet at the Tasting Room at the Winery for your complimentary Winery Tour, and then book a journey of discovery at the wine tastings. Stroll around the vineyards, hike the hills, or finesse your forehand on the tennis courts. To cool off, enjoy some laps in the wonderful pool. For an unforgettable experience, the Chateau Elan Viking Culinary Studio is recommended — courtesy of top international chefs, learn how to make an impressive three-course meal with rotating menus weekly.

    If you are interested in venturing beyond the château, the entertaining city of Atlanta awaits. Take a tour of the World of Coca-Cola and see how the iconic beverage is made.
