If you want a drink, you’re in the right city.

So, where are Atlantans drinking right now? What’s hot and newly opened? Read on to find out.
Must-order: You could (and should) sample some of the stellar cocktails, concocted to pair well with the South African cured meat biltong, but stick to the region and select from one of the tough-to-find South African wines on the menu.
