Establishment interior theme is the year 1845: note the antique cash register, the copper fire extinguisher, and the rustic paintings on the wall, one of which is Henry Irby in all his dated glory, the principal founder of Buckhead himself. With a thick list of beers on draught, plenty of original cocktails, and an old time feel full of class, the Establishment certainly is one of the most unique places in Atlanta to grab a drink.

Seven Lamps is located in the shopping center directly next to Lenox Square Mall. Sandwiched between the sleek Westin Hotel and arguably Atlanta’s most premier shopping hub, it makes for a very convenient destination. The interior is trendy and dimly lit, with a modernized yet traditional feel. Seven Lamps’ apple cider is impressively delicious, and the kitchen produces a rich handmade gnocchi dish among several other choices in case you develop an appetite. Try the ‘barrel rider,’ made with Four Roses bourbon, Zucca, Tawny Port (a Portuguese wine), and cardamom.

Small plates and cocktails meet a lively music venue, perfect for a high-spirited couples’ night out. The Sound Table is often quite crowded, so keep that in mind as you make your way over to Edgewood Avenue. Once you’re inside, cheer on the DJ and get down to funk, soul, and every other dance-inspiring ballad you can imagine. Atlanta’s Creative Loafing praised the Sound Table for its ‘indefinable nature,’ as the establishment blends good times, down to earth guests, and, of course, unbeatable cocktails and delicious dishes.
