Inman Park, 299 North Highland Avenue Northeast
Atlanta, GA 30307
This small, retro, cocktails-first spot has a 1970s feel and emphasizes Italian amari and bitters. A fun-starter for your afternoon and evening, it has all-star bartenders from a where’s-where of Atlanta watering holes (Leon’s Full Service, Victory Sandwich Bar, Joystick Gamebar, etc.), plus a menu split into four categories: “built,” “sodas,” “stirred,” and “shaken.” Try the Bone & Mast, a member of the shaken group, which is made with bourbon, rum, banana, a stout reduction, allspice, and lime.
