Those of you that have been to or live in Atlanta will recognize this setting immediately. Those of you that don't, let me explain. This is the Clermont Hotel, a now defunct motel that is mostly known for the still-in-existence Clermont Lounge that resides in the basement of the building. Part dive, part strip club, and the home of the infamous and iconic Blondie (among other, equally interesting characters), the Clermont Lounge is a city landmark in itself and one of the most notable on the list of strange, quirky, and inspiring Atlanta dives. It's a weird, amazing, hilarious, confusing place. And if you need more information than that or just a deeper look, I thoroughly suggest you check out "We're All Freaks" by Dana Hazels Seith on The Bitter Southerner.
