Top Flr closing Nov. 7

Top Flr owner Darren Carr announced via Facebook that the Midtown cocktail bar and small plate restaurant would close on Nov. 7. But he added that three new concepts would appear in its place early next year.

Beyond its name, which was destined to appear as a typo, Top Flr and its sister spot, The Sound Table , were in the vanguard of Atlanta places where DJ-driven nightlife became as important as the food and drink.

Soon after Top Flr opened in 2009, former AJC dining critic Meridith Ford declared it "by definition, quirky."

It will be fascinating to see what Carr and company come up with next. In the meantime, Scoutmob is offering "Top Flr's Dinner For Two, One Last Time."
