A reminder of nights many Atlantans have forgotten is up for sale, and it’s going to the highest bidder.
The iconic sign from the Clermont Hotel on Ponce is now up for sale on eBay, and bidding prices have already surpassed $3,000. The auction will last until next Thursday morning, and if you win, you’ll have to pick it up yourself in the city.
So at least you’ll save some money on shipping.

For $3,000 (and rising), you only get the top of the sign, but it’s still a heck of a collector’s item.
The Clermont has been a hotel since 1940, but it closed in 2009 after falling into disrepair; the basement strip club, known as the Clermont Lounge, remained open except for nine months in 2016 and 2017.
The Hotel Clermont is expected to reopen as a revamped boutique hotel in May, according to AJC.com.Follow @Sean_Breslin
