Want to take a travel back to a simpler time?
Take a time machine back to the roaring 20s at Atlanta’s swanky new speakeasy: The Third Door is now open with rip-roaring good cocktails near Marietta Square.
Sure, maybe the 1920s weren’t so simple. After all, alcohol was banned so getting through the rigor of the day-to-day must have been brutal, am I right? Whereas to get your hands on spirits back in the day required top-dollar cunning and a secret password, none such clandestine behavior is required at The Third Door in Marietta Square.
Built into a restored 1920s gas station, the speakeasy is a classy joint fixed with polished wood bars, drop-down counters, Victorian seating, and tin ceilings. Its Jalopy Gallery is designed to stage a variety of live musical performances once things go back to normal. Additionally, the speakeasy is fitted with roll-up garage doors that open to a spacious outdoor biergarten, complete with yard games.
Presently, Third Door is offering a seasonal cocktail menu inspired by National Lampoon’s Family Vacation, with libations such as the Bend Over and I’ll Show Ya, which includes gin, lime, cranberry, ginger, and maple, as well as the Kiss My Ass, Kiss His Ass, Kiss Your Ass, Happy Hanukah – a mouthful of a concoction mixed with PX Sherry, lemon, walnut, cream, whole egg, and nutmeg.
Spirits, as well as an assortment of red, white, and sparkling wines are also available, same with local craft beers.
The Third Door is open from 5 pm until midnight Tuesday through Thursday and 5 pm until 1 am Friday and Saturday. Special events can be booked at the cocktail lounge through here.
