Space features three patios, rooftop bar and lounge

The third location of South African-inspired restaurant and bar Biltong Bar is now open at Avalon in Alpharetta this month.

The spot, which specializes in dry-aged beef jerky, opened Nov. 9 in the mixed-use development. It joins the original Biltong Bar, which opened at Ponce City Market in 2016 and one in Buckhead Village that opened in 2018.

Biltong Bar is part of restaurateur Justin Anthony’s True Story Brands, which also includes Yebo Beach Haus and 10 Degrees South.

The new location offers a more extensive menu than the other two locations, featuring a selection of small bites, salads and sandwiches. Dishes include ostrich sliders, peri-peri prawn tacos, grilled cheese and double beef patty burger.

The beverage program is similar to the intown Biltong Bar locations, with custom cocktails, a curated South African wine selection and more traditional go-to wines.
