August Startup Drinks is at Ormsby’s

It’s the dog days of summer so we’re heading back someplace cool and sheltered: Ormsby’s basement! Complete with bocce ball, pool tables, and beer!  Ormsby’s is a “speakeasy” style bar hidden away on the West Side, near Georgia Tech. If you’ve never been to Ormsby’s before, follow the directions below, and look for the secret door with the big wrought iron “O” on it, underneath the furniture store. Then look for us in the sub-basement (seriously, go down the main staircase and you’ll find us in their 2nd bar).

No Fourth of July Startup Drinks

For the first time Startup Drinks has fallen on a major holiday so instead of trying to reschedule we are going to be cancel this month’s event. Expect details on the August event soon!

June Drinks is at the Oak Brewpub in Decatur

We’ve had a couple of recommendations to try this place out and to head down to Decatur in general. The Oak Brewpub opened earlier this spring and has a full bar with cocktails and their own beer selection. The menu looks very eclectic and creative. One slice of their pie looks like a meal by itself. It is near Oakhurst Park and about as easy to get to as anything in Decatur.

April Startup Drinks at the Skybar at 5 Seasons Westside

And there’s something ’bout the Southland in the springtime
Where the waters flow with confidence and reason

Southland in the Springtime
Indigo Girls

The place to be in Atlanta on a spring afternoon is a rooftop bar with a great view of the city. One of my favorites is 5 Seasons West’s Skybar. Who knows, maybe the Real Housewives of Atlanta will be there again? So April’s Startup Drinks will be at 5 Seasons Westside’s Skybar. Parking is super convenient. Just park on the top of the deck in the back and walk directly into the bar.

February Startup Drinks is at The Dark Room

February Startup Drinks will be at a private Atlanta speakeasy called The Dark Room on February 7th starting at 5:30 and running until 8:00. The Dark Room is at 1040 West Marietta Street NW. When you come in just head straight in and then head downstairs. Unlike a real speakeasy there will be signs. We will have snacks and drinks but The Dark Room is definitely a ‘potluck’ affair so if you have a favorite beverage, please bring it with you (and maybe some extra to share?).
