Biltong Bar coming to Buckhead

A spot for cocktails and South African fare and wines is coming to Buckhead.

Biltong Bar -- which opened in Ponce City Market in 2015 -- will open a location in the Shops Buckhead Atlanta development this summer.

The restaurant offers house-cured beef jerky known as biltong, South African street food and a beverage program featuring custom cocktails and an extensive wine list that highlights South African blends.

Biltong Bar is from True Story Brands, which also owns the original Biltong Bar as well as other South African-inspired concepts including 10 Degrees South, Cape Dutch and Yebo Beach House .

The 6,500 square-foot restaurant will be designed by owner Justin Anthony's wife, interior

designer Kelly Wolf-Anthony of Wolf Design Group, and will feature a 40-seat bar which extends the entirety of the

restaurant, a dining room and a lounge with interactive games.

The second location will feature new menu offerings as well as items from the Ponce City Market location including a variety of biltong flavors and meat varieties including beef, elk, venison and buffalo.

Shops Buckhead Atlanta has seen a lot of culinary turnover in the past few years , with the addition of concepts including Le Bilboquet, American Cut, Regent Cocktail Club and Mourning Dove coffee shop and the closure of eateries including American Food and Beverage and Thirteen Pies, Dolce Italian and Corso Coffee.
