Atlantans are lucky to have a bustling food scene filled with top-notch restaurants that have made a dent on the country’s culinary outlook, but the best bars in Atlanta ain’t too shabby either. Even if you’re just in town for a quick business trip, you’re likely to have access to some of the best lounges and bars in the region just outside your hotel room. Why hang in your little space and depend on room service when you can belly-up to a local bar for a nightcap?
And if you’re already a local, what are you waiting for? Step away from the smoke engulfing the best hookah bars and BBQ spots in town and opt, instead, for an excursion into the city’s cocktail world.
Grab your pals and hit these happy hour hangouts before snagging a table at a nearby restaurant or partaking in Atlanta’s humming nightlife scene. After all, as Mr. Jermaine Dupri, who was raised here, so eloquently explains: Atlanta fêtes don’t end until the wee hours, leaving plenty of time for an after-dinner aperitif.
