Welcome to Graduate Athens – where your intellectual curiosity meets your favorite place to stay.

Perhaps you’ve noticed we’ve made a home in the Foundry, where blacksmiths crafted famed works like the UGA Arch and the Double-Barreled Cannon. We’re located near downtown Athens and just a short walk from the scenic and historic UGA campus. Our hotel has crafted the perfect setting for a wedding, company meet up and is the all-around smartest place to stay in Athens, GA.

The Foundry, our music venue, was reimagined to honor the site’s roots and to preserve this piece of Athens’ fine past. The multi-tiered venue welcomes crystal clear views, stellar acoustics and a place to celebrate with craft brews, Southern eats and new artists.

So, whether you’re dropping in for a show, showing off the alma mater or attending a meeting here in town, we’re here to make it memorable. Our warm, friendly and whip-smart staff (#humblebrag) can guide you around Georgia’s finest – so that you feel like a local – even if it’s your first time in Athens.

Sit back with a copy of The Red and Black, grab a Terrapin Liquid Bliss and bite at the Foundry – this is the good life in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Our Athens boutique hotel rooms are ready for a night like you’ve never had before. Where little moments of surprise and discovery will meet you down every corridor. This is Graduate – get ready to be inspired.
