A look back at the history of Atlanta’s Peach Drop

Ring in 2020 in Atlanta with a return to the roaring ’20s

The ‘20s are coming back. To welcome the new decade in style, an Atlanta bar is throwing a party from the ‘20s of yesteryear. 

It was an era of jazz, flappers and skirting the law of the land: prohibition. On New Year’s Eve, you can break out your best 1920s attire and head to McCray’s Tavern in Midtown, 1163 W Peachtree St NE, for a roaring ‘20s themed celebration.

There will be live entertainment, “vintage libations,” a midnight buffet, champagne toast and balloon drop, according to the event page.
