Landmark Diner Downtown Atlanta

Built Internal Environment Description of Landmark Diner, Downtown Atlanta


I went to Landmark Diner located in Downtown Atlanta on Monday March 6th at 4:30pm-5: 40pm. During this time, there were five customers in the restaurant, including myself. When you first enter the Diner, there is a rectangular light-up sign that flashed messages including “Welcome to Landmark Diner”, “Open 24 hours”, “Where the Stars Meet at Nite”, “Dinner specials”, and “Full Bar” in colored letters. Beside the sign is a black and white painting of the skyline of Atlanta. There is a 3-foot sign standing up in front of the door telling customers to wait to be seated.

To the left of the entrance, there is a counter behind which are shelves that are holding bottles of alcohol and dark liquor including Crown Royal. On the wall beside the shelves, there are dollar bills from various countries and jumbo sized American hundred-dollar bill taped on the wall. On the counter sits a cash register and customers pay here for their food when they are finished eating. Straight ahead in front of the entrance, you can see the grill where the cooks prepare the food.

There is an area separated from what appears to be the main dining room that contains three small sized booths, a jukebox, and the restrooms. The main dining room is located to the right of the entrance. It contains about thirty tables and a bar area for customers to dine in. All of the tables have mint green tabletops and silver lining around the borders of the tables. There are seven booths in the dining room, including one large sized booth that looks as if it can sit seven or eight people comfortably.

The ceiling over the bar area is painted orange and contains different colored squares including grey, black, and mint green. The floor and columns of the restaurant appear to have the same marble tiling. There is a wall that is made up of mostly windows that outlooks the sidewalk and as well as a building across the street from the restaurant.

This picture shows one of the few two-top tables in the entire restaurant; there are about four in all. The table is set with two rolls of utensils, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper shakers, sugar packets, and grape and strawberry jelly packets. The table is pushed against the tile wall. The baseboards beside the table appear to have some dirt on them. The table is noticeably smaller than all of the other tables in the restaurant. The table is located in the middle area of the dining room, across from one of the marble columns.
