Less than four miles outside of Peachtree Corners is a stately antebellum home located on a peaceful lawn in Old Norcross. If you love the idea of having a holiday party in an elegant, historic home, look no further than Flint Hill. During the month of December enjoy the tasteful Southern Elegance twist on holiday décor.

Sales Director Logan Fehrenbach described what is music to the ears of those who appreciate the charm of older homes, “…you will find this historic home abounding with character… From the original flooring, doors, and mantels, to the beautiful large wooden bar, this special event venue… is a step back in time.”

Through the paned glass windows of The Grand Ballroom where up to 180 guests can be seated, mingle, and dance the night away, one can view the manicured courtyard and access it through French doors.

The French doors also give way to The Covered Pavilion where up to 100 guests can be seated. This area can also be used as an outdoor dance floor. “Equipped with an extra bar and custom-fit sidewalls for the winter months, the covered pavilion is a grand addition to any special event,” said Fehrenbach.

The Courtyard with its lush greenery can seat up to 130 guests.

The home can accommodate a cocktail style reception of up to 200 guests inside. The maximum number of guests in the home and surrounding areas is 275.

How About a Holiday Party at Flint Hill?

Flint Hill is a full-service facility that hosts customized special events. You’ll meet with a complimentary Venue Coordinator who will help you with menu selections, a timeline for the event, and go over the layout of the facility, as well as the specifics of your event.

Their skilled team takes care of all of the set-up and break down, allowing you and your guests to simply show up and be present in celebrating together. This special event facility takes care of all of the necessities such as food, beverage, decor, and staffing—all in a one-stop-shop. “We strive to ensure that all of our clients have a fun and stress-free planning process with us,” said Fehrenbach.

A Divine Event is the exclusive vendor of all food, beverage, décor and staffing for this property. They offer award-winning holiday menus for the month of December. “We have a wide variety of menu options from holiday menus, brunch menus, southern style menus, Indian Fusion menus, classic style menus and more! We offer multiple styles of food services including: Cocktail Party-style buffets, formal buffets, interactive food stations, plated seated and served, late night stations and dessert stations,” divulged Fehrenbach.

Book it!

If you have your heart set on a particular date, it is recommended that you book 12-15 months in advance. For holiday parties, they usually book between three and five months out. However, they can host an event in as little as a 60-day booking window if the home is available.

Standard contract times for events at Flint Hill are five hours, with the opportunity to add additional time if desired. For holiday parties, however, they do offer the option of a three-hour block of time.

All event pricing is customized based on headcount, type of food service, and beverage package selections. Food and beverages are charged at a per person rate determined by the type of food service one selects and the beverage package one intends to offer guests.

Flint Hill will serve alcohol to guests 21 years of age and older. Some options include Beer and Wine, Full Bar, Coffee Stations, Signature Drinks, and Table Side Service. 

Pricing for corporate or personal holiday events:

  • Low:  $5,000
  • Mid:  $9,000 – $15,000
  • High: $16,000 – $22,000

Dahlia’s Restaurant & Porch offers southern-style fare and easy entertainment

Just in time for the summer season, Hilton Atlanta Northeast has launched a new dining option, Dahlia’s Restaurant & Porch.

The casual dining experience brings understated luxury to an easy, breezy setting with comfortable patio furniture on a spacious outdoor deck, a full bar with top-shelf spirits and an impressive wine collection. The cuisine is Southern style and utilizes regionally sourced, farm-fresh ingredients.

“You really can’t ask for an easier setting or a more comfortable way to unwind,” said Andrew Stegen, executive vice president of operations for FullG Capital, the hotel operator. “In the old days, hotels had restaurants for the travelers, and the locals came occasionally. Now, it’s the other way around. You have to appeal to the people who live here.”

At a press preview on May 15, Dahlia’s Restaurant & Porch was unveiled for the first time.

“Dahlia’s is a great addition for our hotel guests but also for the local community! We are most excited about our new porch, which is the perfect place for happy hour spritz, outdoor dining and future programming,” said Mike Roling, general manager of Hilton Atlanta Northeast. 

The food is led by executive chef Robert Chafflin, who said he likes to bring an approachable yet flavorful take on southern culinary staples. For the preview, guests were wowed with shrimp and grits, braised beef short ribs, mushroom risotto, shrimp po’boys, cheesecake with caramelized peaches and a whole lot more. 

The beverages were just as tantalizing – from the signature Black Dahlia to the unexpected Southern Dandie to an array of seasonal spritzes. 

“We are excited to bring a newly renovated restaurant space, brand new porch, and refreshed menu to our property,” said Roling. “We welcome the public, both locals and hotel guests alike, to come join us for a dining experience elevated by our southern hospitality.”

Dahlia’s Restaurant & Porch also has a private dining area and a lounge area—perfect for relaxing after a busy day, grabbing a sumptuous meal with the family or meeting friends for lunch or dinner and drinks. Dahlia’s also provides catering for hotel events. For more information, visit dahliasrestaurant.com.
