Restaurant to open in Harp Transmission building in Grant Park 

The long-empty building that previously housed a car transmission business will soon find new life as a bar and restaurant in Grant Park.

The Harp Transmission building at 350 Memorial Drive will become The Harp, What Now Atlanta first reported. 

The restaurant will be owned and operated by Charlotte chef Jarrett Gray and his sister, longtime Atlanta resident Joy Gray Prince.

Look for American cuisine with “a twist,” Gray told What Now, including a lobster roll prepared like a corndog. The Harp will serve lunch and dinner, a weekend brunch buffet and mimosa and Bloody Mary bars.

A wall will feature 40 self-serve taps serving beer, wine and champagne that can be purchased in one-ounce increments. The beverage offerings will also include up to 10 craft cocktails.

The space will also feature two outdoor patios with seating for 200 and oversized yard games.

The Harp could be open as early as the end of November.

The building was originally slated to become a mixed-use development with office space, retail and restaurants.
