It's an Atlanta institution, and the temporary closing of Manuel's Tavern has inspired nostalgia, fear and, very likely, a drink or three.
Located at the corner of North and North Highland, the building has been sold to Green Street Properties. Shortly after Christmas Manuel’s will close for several months, during which time it will be disassembled, renovated from top to bottom, and put back together, albeit in a slightly smaller footprint. The 9,600-square-foot bar will lose about 2,000 square feet along North Avenue, which will be converted into a separate unit to be leased by another business.
We've been taking a look at the 60-year-old bar and its impact from many angles. Check out our complete coverage here.
