There are tons of places to enjoy a drink in Atlanta, but when you want to narrow it down to the best of the best, who’re you going to ask? A bartender, naturally.
At least that’s the logic behind the new book “Where Bartenders Drink: The Last Word on the Glass,” which lists 700 bars around the world chosen by 225 experts, ie bartenders. The book weighs in on everything from dive bars to speakeasies in 60 countries.
Five spots from Atlanta and one from Savannah made it into the book, almost all picked by Empire State South bar manager Kellie Thorn, with the exception of one bar — which happens to be Empire State South — chosen by New Orleans bartender Kirk Estopinal. Check out the picks here, and let us know what you think in the comments — are any of these your favorite spots to drink?
