We’re loving the mix of bars now rounding out the galleries, lofts, and designer retailers along Marietta Street and Howell Mill Road. Keep it classy at Cooks & Soldiers or Bocado, serving Basque hard cider and craft cocktails, respectively. Or dress down for beer and board games at Ormsby’s, pitchers of margaritas at Bar-taco, and local pints from 5 Seasons Brewing Company and Bellwoods Social House. Feeling moody and hip? Head to Little Trouble. Looking for a dive? Stop by Northside Tavern, where live blues bring down the house. On the way: Barcelona Wine Bar’s second Atlanta location, at the Westside Ironworks, is expected to open by the year’s end.
