Daiquiriville, a new bar focused on frozen cocktails and Colombian food, opened last month at 50 Alabama St. SW in Underground Atlanta.
The concept comes from Luisa Duran, a native of Colombia who served as a bartender for a decade before deciding to strike out on her own.
Daiquiriville offers eight daiquiris at a time in the frozen drink machine, and two rotating house daiquiris made in a blender, as well as a variety of cocktails and shots, including the Gummy Gummy Bowl made with vodka, rum, gin, tequila, blue curacao, Sprite and gummies and served in a fishbowl and the Pink Flamingo made with creme de cacao, cream and raspberry liqueur and served in a flamingo-shaped glass.
The food menu features Brazilian-style tapas including plantain baskets with salmon tartare, Iberican pizza, and tropical ceviche.
The 2,200-square-foot interior is “a total neon vibe,” Duran said, complete with a UV light hallway leading to the restrooms. The interior seats about 80 inside and 10 on an outdoor patio, and the bar hosts karaoke and DJ nights.
Opening hours are 6 p.m.-1 a.m. Thursdays, 6 p.m.-3 a.m. Fridays-Saturdays and 6 p.m.-midnight Sundays.
Daiquiriville joins several other operating and soon-to-open food and beverage concepts at Underground Atlanta, which was purchased in 2020 by Lalani Ventures. The development, which spans Pryor, Central, Wall, and Alabama streets, is readying for a $150 million renovation that will also include housing.
Already open at Underground Atlanta are the Masquerade live music venue; Future Showbar and Restaurant, a 14,000-square-foot, two-story LGBTQ restaurant and bar; and iScream Ice Cream ice cream parlor.
