4 Spots to Sip Cocktails this Summer

By Kelsie Allen Barton | May 16, 2018 | Articles

Handsome Westside newbie Donetto (@donettoatl) has quickly become a popular spot for newly instated executive chef Elliot Cusher’s innovative Tuscan fare and its good-looking scene—go for brunch and grab a seat at the bar to enjoy some eye-candy along with a Netspritz and Chill, a refreshing mix of house limonata, rosemary, aperol, prosecco and lemon.

Over in Poncey-Highland, 8ARM (@8armatl) draws a cool, arty crowd for Joshua Fryer’s classic cocktails with a twist, best enjoyed at the outdoor shipping container bar that’s decked out in day glow lights and lined with a pink-and-green palm frond mural.

Fruity Spanish concoctions like the Cadiz Punch 2.0 and the Purple Peach—coupled with a gorgeous millennial pink interior—make Bar Mercado (@barmercadoatl), Krog Street Market’s buzzy tapas spot, a frequent stop for ATL’s blogger bunch. (Bottomless bloody marys, mimosas and sangria at brunch may also have something to do with that.)

Late-night haven Bon Ton (@bontonatlanta) transports Midtown diners to The Big Easy with a cheeky, playful vibe and authentic (read: stiff) sips. Order the smoked bourbon mai tai or the frozen Pimm’s cup before a night on the town.
