  • Entrance sign to Dante's Down the Hatch, an Atlanta institution for more than 40 years, 32 of them in Buckhead.
  • An exit sign directs diners past an old car. About a half-dozen classic restored cars (not including this one!) will be part of the sale.
  • With its nautical theme, unique furnishings, fondue menu and nightly jazz, Dante's was a one-of-a-kind dining experience.
  • Many antique items will be sold, like this wonderful old Gillett & Company clock, made in London.
  • Wonderful appointments such as this heavily carved wood chandelier showing Oriental figures in boats will be sold.
  • Three of Dante Stephensen's on-premises classic cars (all to be sold) peek out beneath a sign with a slightly different last name spelling.
  • Marvelous architectural elements - including the plank flooring shown here - will be sold at the Sept. 21 auction.
  • A sign for the Sailor's Rest boasts that Proprietor Sally Small “can accommodate up to 14 sailors a night” -- yikes!
  • Dante's had a decidedly nautical look and feel. Items such as this authentic ship's maiden will be part of the auction.
