About Rooftop L.O.A.

Rooftop LOA (Leave of Absence), a Slater Hospitality concept, is the perfect spot for dining, socializing, private events, and poolside partying with views of the Atlanta skyline. Our 38,000 square foot rooftop consist of four areas including a full-service restaurant, a 1200 square foot resort style pool, an outdoor bar and gathering space, and a 150-person covered event pavilion. This adults-only rooftop with capacity for 1000 people is designed to be a sophisticated escape from the hustle and bustle of the Westside below. The intention for LOA is that guests feel like they are on vacation the moment they check in on the ground floor, before ever heading up to the roof. Once there, we want them to leave their world behind.
