The newsroom and control room
Muslims visiting the CNN studio will not be able to find prayer facilities within its premises. They could however ask around for an empty room which they could use to offer their prayers. If unable to find one, they can use the facilities offered at one of the many mosques in the city, such as Al-Farooq Masjid of Atlanta, Masjid Abu Bakr and Atlanta Masjid of Al-Islam.
It is unsure if the CNN building has a café. Guests looking to get a bite to eat could ask their tour guide for more information regarding this. Also, the city of Atlanta has a wide selection of fantastic Halal restaurants. Muslim visitors could therefore ask to be directed to the best Halal restaurant nearby.
