Best of Atlanta 2015

Marcel

New Late-Night Menu: Marcel

There’s no better place to sate your late-night cravings than Ford Fry’s upscale steakhouse on the Westside.

First-Date Bar: Skylounge at the Glenn Hotel

Drinks are stiff, and the crowd at the bar is usually pretty sparse until after 10.
Ladybird Grove and Mess Hall

Hipster Hangout: Ladybird Grove and Mess Hall

The base camp for the bearded, tattooed masses is this rustic watering hole on the Atlanta BeltLine. That’s not a knock against the place—more like a dress code alert, so you don’t saunter in sporting Vineyard Vines or Jimmy Choos.
Criminal Records

Record Store: Criminal Records

It can be a daunting task to flip through the racks and racks of vinyl records and CDs inside this 5,000 square-foot Little Five Points establishment.

Post-Workout Treatment: Sports Chiropractic & Massage

Let’s say you (unsuccessfully) tried to hurl yourself into a handstand in yoga, and now your body seems to be punishing you for it. Make a call stat to Dr. Morgan Smith, who will do his best to get you in quickly—especially if you tell him you’re “in agony.”

BYOB: Dish Dive

Calling this place a restaurant almost feels too pretentious, given the bare walls and hand-ful of seats. Still, locals flock to the spare space, where you can BYO beer and wine and order a spread of affordable small plates that include shakshuka with fried egg, Green Goddess tagliatelle, and pork belly on leek grits.
The Shave

Shave: The Shave

At this new-school-meets-old-school barbershop in Poncey-Highland, you can sip a complimentary can of PBR and thumb through a 1960s Playboy while waiting for your hot towel and straight razor shave ($45).
Revival

Cornbread: Revival

We’re told that the recipe is bestowed upon only one person in Kevin Gillespie’s family at any given time. The story could be full of lard, but who cares—his cornbread triangles cooked in a cast-iron skillet are pure genius.

Karaoke Night: Clermont Lounge

The Clermont Lounge is certainly known for worse sins than crooning off-key, and that’s what makes this karaoke night (Tuesdays at 9:30 p.m.) the perfect place to find your inner rock star.
