Your next night out in Roswell has been decided.
Residents of the town voted on the best spot to spend a late night, and although there was a variety of places to choose from, only one took the top spot.
In fifth place was Loyal Tavern. The Canton Street restaurant, which serves a full menu, including the heirloom tomato stack and a burger called The Big Greasy until close, earned 12.4% of votes. It’s open until midnight three days a week and doesn’t close until 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
Bistro and wine bar VIN25 tied with Little Alley Steak for third place. Each spot took 16.6% of votes.
VIN25 is not open on Mondays, but patrons can book a table as late as 10 p.m. on most nights throughout the week. Guests can stop in to sip wine by the glass, grab a half bottle or nibble on Pimento cheese fritters with sweet and sour chili jam.
Little Alley Steak, meanwhile, closes at 10 p.m. most days of the week but is open until 11 p.m. on Fridays and 1 a.m. on Saturdays. The eatery, described on the website as “a suburban steak sanctuary” offers a charcuterie board filled with local meats and a variety of steaks with an abundance of toppings. They include scallops and king crab, black truffle and frois gras butters, and horseradish cream and Yuzu béarnaise sauces.
In second place was a location that goes beyond just being a bar and grill. Chaplins, which earned 20.7% of the votes, is touted as Atlanta’s karaoke place and features a live DJ operating karaoke shows. Its menu includes staples like burgers and wings, but there’s also a section focused on South Beach and Atkins diets for those seeking healthier options while belting their hearts out.
So which place took the title as the best late-night spot in Roswell?
It’s Mac McGee! The Irish pub garnered 33.7% of the votes, as residents showed support for the eatery’s made-from-scratch meals and live music offerings. Among the dishes are the Canton street chicken or veggie curry, poutine and a Southwest Caesar salad. Mac McGee features live performances Thursday through Saturday.
