The Lee + White complex on the West End stretch of the Beltline is kind of like an adult playground where you can wander with open containers from brewery to cidery to distillery, visiting tasting rooms and patios while maximizing your day drinking. Eventually, though, you’ll want to break up the beverage crawl with some food and that’s when you head to the Boxcar patio for a lobster roll, some chicken liver pate, or yuzu fried chicken. When you’re ready to get back to drinking, Boxcar has almost 80 draft taps, 30 wine-by-the-glass options, and a cocktail menu mostly made up of spirits from the neighboring ASW Distillery. They also have a “beer cave” with 1,000 packaged beers and 800 bottles of wine, which means that Boxcar is also where we’d like to be stuck during a nuclear war.

There are few things we like more than showing up to Gus's downtown with a big group and ordering the 20 piece family meal with a bunch of sides.

Anis Cafe & Bistro
Anis is one of our favorite places in Buckhead to get wine drunk outdoors, especially while surrounded by plants and eating a croque monsieur.
Ration and Dram
Ration and Dram on the border of Edgewood and Kirkwood is a great walk-in spot for a casual drink or for all day brunch drinking.

Cypress is one of the only spots in Midtown with an outdoor area, so come for some sun and definitely their burger.
