We know how it goes: By the time your friends are done arguing over where to go in the group chat, its too late for happy hour anyways. Skip the drama and join us at these four spots for the perfect weekend in Downtown.
This prohibition-inspired speakeasy is the perfect spot to kick off your night. Featuring more than 180 types of whiskey and 100 cigar varietals, Red Phone Booth (@rpbatlanta) strays from the present and impresses with this trip back to the 1920s. Just make sure you know the secret phone number before you go.
Sushi and steak, who could say no? Between master sushi chef Saito Saito’s exquisite creations—a result of his more than 10-year apprenticeship in Japan—and Saito’s (@saitoatl) rare cuts of meat, including wagyu beef and more, this Downtown haunt hits the spot every time. Insider tip: Don’t even think about leaving until you’ve ordered the fried Twinkies for dessert.
Whether starting or ending your night, Meehan’s (@meehansdt.atl) always delivers an authentic Irish pub experience, especially with its selection of beer and on-brand tipples like these must-orders: Long Ireland tea; Irish limeade; and ATL, Ryes Up.
Ne-Yo and wife Crystal Smith know how to make a mean plate of chicken and waffles. Cure your hangover horrors at Johnny’s Chicken & Waffles (@johnnyschickenusa) with unique takes on the traditional dish, including the crowd-favorite Mac Attack, a savory plate of goodness complete with a crispy chicken sandwich and crispy waffle fries.
