Tapped cocktails and sliders in a steampunk lounge

The Joint is T&G's adjacent steampunk-sexy "turbo-pub", where the music is quality, the cocktails are on tap, and the pole is stripper. Seriously: there's a stripper pole by the bar, right where brick walls meet barnwood, all under the huge, LED-lit spiral sculpture resembling the awning from back in T&G's old Buckhead days.The menu's full of soul-comforting munchies, from Parmesan-dusted popcorn to chipped beef over toast, warm pretzels w/ cheddar beer cheese, house versions of famous snacks (White Castle-ish slider trios, bagel bites by the half-dozen), and trout dip "straight from mountain streams", much like people who just came from listening to a lot of Mississippi Queen on Pandora. They'll be aging three 'tails in small wooden barrels before pouring them ice-cold through a tap, including Southern Table Wine (Deep Eddy's Sweet Tea vodka, fresh-squeezed lemonade, Merlet Creme de Peche, mint), and a Death's Door G 'n T made w/ natural tonic from Fever-Tree, served slightly below 102 degrees.There'll also be a tiki drink called the Bahai Hut Mai Tai (served in a coconut w/ 151 & three other rums), and an evolving list of discounted boutique liquors like Fireball and Root, inspired by the root beer predecessor made by Native Americans, who also had a few joints themselves.
