Staplehouse has a new upstairs cocktail bar

Reservations at critically-praised Old Fourth Ward spot Staplehouse are tough to come by, but grabbing a drink in the same building just got a little bit easier.

The restaurant opened Paper Crane Lounge in an upstairs space that previously served as a private event space earlier this month, Eater Atlanta reports. Open from 5:30-10 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays and 5:30-11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, the bar is first come, first serve and features a rotating cocktail list with five or six drinks (including a sparkling Negroni). Different drinks lists will be offered at the restaurant and lounge.

Staplehouse was recently named to Eater's America’s 38 Essential Restaurants list as compiled by critic Bill Addison.
