When your regular bar nights start to feel boring, El Malo is a beautiful cocktail lounge in the Atlanta Dairies that will jazz up your night out with a Latin-Caribbean food and drink menu. Giant art deco light pillars make the bar seem primed for a Charleston dance-off. But clubby hits played by weekend DJs and colorful neon lights bring us back to the present day. If the Bad Bunny mash-ups are too much, disappear into the Serpent Room in the back (padded from floor to ceiling in plush green fabric). There are a handful of solid (but small) signature cocktails featuring rums, mezcals, and other Latin-Caribbean spirits. And food items like plantain chips and ropa vieja keep the sexy bar's menu petite. This is a stand-and-sip spot, so save those uncomfortable shoes for another day unless you make a booth reservation ahead of time.
