A long-empty Grant Park building that previously housed a car transmission business has found new life as a bar and restaurant.
The Harp, owned and operated by former Charlotte chef Jarrett Gray and his sister, longtime Atlanta resident Joy Gray Prince, opened over the weekend at 350 Memorial Drive SE in the former Harp Transmission building, according to its Facebook page.
While its currently waiting on its liquor license, the spot will soon offer a wall that will feature 40 self-serve taps serving beer, wine and champagne that can be purchased in one-ounce increments and will be tracked via a wristband. Beverage offerings will also include up to 10 craft cocktails served at the bar. The restaurant will be BYOB until it gets its liquor license.
On the food side, look for American cuisine with “a twist,” according to the restaurant’s website, with the preliminary menu featuring items including wings, The Vurger black bean burger, pita sandwich with a choice of protein, wings, Twisted Brussels made with sauteed mushrooms, onions, carrots and celery and a grilled Caesar salad topped with provolone grilled cheese croutons.
The Harp will serve lunch and dinner, and eventually a weekend brunch buffet with mimosa and Bloody Mary bars.
In the future, the space will feature two outdoor patios with seating for 200 and oversized yard games.
Gray told Atlanta Magazine he plans to host theme nights and will partner with local companies to host events including yoga classes and pop-up shops.
The AJC has reached out to Gray for more details, including regular hours and dishes to be featured on the brunch menu.
