For Atlanta, the bar of choice for Thrillist editors has South African influences and cocktails you won’t find elsewhere in the ATL.
Ponce City Market’s Biltong Bar got brownie points for not only its cocktail lineup but its beef jerky. The editors gave kudos to Biltong’s “delicious air-dried, charcuterie-ish” beef jerky. They also suggested trying the unusual Celery Sour, a concoction of London gin, pineapple, celery, lemon, vanilla, and greek yogurt, on your first visit.
“We love jerky. And we love cocktails...Even if you don’t really drink much, you can’t go wrong with cocktails like the unorthodox Celery Sour.”
There will soon be a chance to enjoy the combination of cocktail and house-cured jerky in Buckhead. Owner Justin Anthony plans to open a 6,500 square-foot restaurant in the Shops Buckhead plaza later this year, the AJC recently reported.
