Old Fourth Distillery to debut speakeasy concept tomorrow

Atlanta’s first distillery since prohibition is changing things up this week with a new speakeasy concept that hearkens back to that era.

Old Fourth Distillery is turning its tasting room into the Locker Room starting at 7 p.m. Thursday, Atlanta Business Chronicle first reported. The club is named for the private clubs that popped up around Atlanta during the early 1900s, when alcohol was locked up and only served to members.

Bartender Cole Younger Just will head up the cocktail program, which will feature the distillery’s gin, vodka, and the distillery's forthcoming bourbon, Eater Atlanta reports.

Jeff Moore, who owns Old Fourth Distillery with his brother, Craig, said there are plans to open similar tasting rooms around Atlanta, including one in East Atlanta at one of the distillery's barrel-aging locations in 2019. The opening will coincide with the release of their new bourbon.

The distillery is also doing work on its Decatur Street facility.
