Here are some of Atlanta’s best secret bars (and how to get in).
Considering we’re in the twenties of this century, we thought we would highlight some of the best speakeasies in Atlanta. The city is home to some incredible bars with secret entrances, 1920’s inspired décor, and more!
Try and hit all these hotspots, as we reveal Atlanta’s best kept secrets. We recommend checking the opening times to avoid disappointment.
Here’s our 7 favorite speakeasies in Atlanta:
1. Red Phone Booth
Many are completely oblivious to the iconic British telephone box nestled in Downtown Atlanta. But if you know the everchanging secret code, you’ll enter Red Phone Booth. It’s an incredible prohibition experience featuring an exclusive cigar program and a turn of the century craft cocktail selection. They are even opening a new location in Buckhead soon!
2. City Winery
Where: Ponce City Market
This winery experience is an incredible addition to Atlanta’s list of legendary speakeasies. It’s also located in Ponce City Market, so you could make a day of it. Although the bar and restaurant is temporarily closed due to the ongoing pandemic, it’s hosting several virtual events as it’s usually a concert hall on top of this speakeasy experience. There’s even a patio that has been opening on and off throughout the year.
3. The Blind Pig Parlour Bar
An intimate and sophisticated speakeasy, The Blind Pig Parlour Bar features innovative craft cocktails with Victorian era décor and ambiance. We recommend the Paper Swan for a fruity treat using Amaro, simple syrup, Aperol, strawberry, lemon, and bubbles!
Located in the tasty Muss & Turner’s, this bar is named after one of their inspirational colleagues who started an exclusive ladies night at the location. Walk through the incognito chilled wine cellar and find this awesome speakeasy! Enjoy tasty dishes and incredible bourbon cocktails, as Eleanor is currently their head wine and bourbon taster.
5. The Club at Lobster Chops
With so much to do in Buckhead, this restaurant and bar experience is a great night out on the town. Chops is very exclusive and you’ll have to get a membership, but we hear it’s completely incomparable once obtained. It is a pricey option, but they have the unbeatable seafood and steaks to ease the splurge.
6. GA Chapter Room
Where: Sandy Springs
The gorgeous barrel-shaped interior complements the incredible wines on offer at GA Chapter Room. There’s also beer and a great selection of cocktails. You’ll find GA behind T. Mac, and you’ll see a door with a plaque of a monkey that you have to knock to enter.
7. Brigantine Beer Parlor
Where: East Atlanta Village
This is the speakeasy if you’re in the mood for beer. Enjoy the awesome parlor games on offer and make your way through their extensive beer menu. To get to this awesome hideaway you have to go to Argosy, walk straight to the back, and voilà!
