For a few years there, it seemed that bourbon was the dominant spirit in Atlanta, a natural result of local (and national) restaurants embracing Southern foods and cooking techniques. One obvious outcome of the trend was Southern Art and Bourbon Bar, which opened in 2011: It occupies a space in the InterContinental Buckhead that was previously a French restaurant and accompanying cognac bar. Bourbon Bar offers more than seventy varieties of our region's whiskey, specializing in flights but also offers cocktails like Run for the Black Roses, made with Woodford Reserve, blackberry shrub, mint, soda, and rose water.
Mar, the Coastal Mexican restaurant initially scheduled to open in October 2012, is aiming to finally open in mid-May. (The Friends and Family night is tentatively scheduled for May 14 or May 15, with the public opening the day after.)
