Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall
Named after Lady Bird Johnson --a First Lady known for her fondness for the outdoors -- Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall is a modern, outdoor-themed bar and restaurant in the Old Fourth Ward. Enjoy brunch, lunch, or dinner in one of five aptly-named “mess halls,” including the outdoor "Grove" space sporting Adirondack chairs and ping pong tables to match the restaurant’s campfire motif. Ladybird’s menu has decidedly Southern bent, with dishes ranging from "trail snacks" like Navajo fry bread and pimento cheese fritters, to the shared camaraderie of large format "basecamp" dining with dishes like the Butcher’s Board (smoked ribs, grilled steak, beef cracklin, and sides). Pair your large-format feast with wine... by the jug. An outpost for sophisticated summer camp dining (upscale s’more included) in a cavernous, laid back atmosphere, Ladybird is a frontrunner on the BeltLine.
Located along the BeltLine’s Eastside Trail, Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall is one of the most beautiful places in Atlanta. Its daytime atmosphere is the perfect conversation starter due to the art and people walking by, and at night, the city’s skyline sets an intimate mood in the evening. You can share stories with friends while sipping on craft cocktails, and if you stay long enough, you might meet someone worth spending the entire evening with.
