The bar at Folk Art Decatur.
The new location will feature a full menu similar to the original Inman Park outpost, with Southern breakfast, lunch, brunch and dinner menus. The space features a full bar, local beers on tap and dining room seating for 138 with an additional 17 spots at the bar and 10 on the patio.
The new space will share a similar visual aesthetic with the original Folk Art with murals from local artists R. Land and a rotating gallery of original pieces by a variety of Atlanta artists.
The space will be designed by architect Leslie Ellsworth of Studio SOGO, who also designed the Inman Park location.
Thumbs Up Diner closed in October 2018 after 10 years in the space, citing rising rents as a major reason for the closure.
For its first week, Folk Art Decatur will be open from 7:30 a.m.-3 p.m. through Friday and 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. On Nov. 18, the restaurant will be open for its regular hours from 7:30 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 7:30 a.m.-10 p.m. Friday, 9 a.m.-10 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday.
