Reservations are the only way you’ll get any refreshment at this super-exclusive cocktail parlor (the name literally means "secret") connected to sushi restaurant Umi. Once inside, enjoy sushi, sashimi, edamame hummus, and various cooked seafood, along with a solid list of cocktails. The bar is run by T. Fable Jeon (The Lawrence) and Shingo Gokan, who is behind New York's infamous Japanese speakeasy, Angel's Share.
The Best Speakeasies in Atlanta
The name means “secret,” and you might walk right by it if you’re trotting around Two Buckhead Plaza looking for speakeasies. Based on the Japanese idea of exceptionally detailed service, this dimly lit, mid-century modern-meets-brutalist bar is reservation-only, serves small plates and desserts, and isn’t shy about pricing drinks, so expect to pay around $20 per cocktail. Plus the experience of being in a cloaked, two-story environment where everybody knows they’ve been screened in advance makes for a very bossy evening, and sets up a night of stories that you shouldn’t be sharing anyway.
