From the wood-paneled walls with random family photos to the fake cigarette ads above the bar, this new Inman Park spot feels like it appeared out of a 1980s fever dream. Take a number at the host station, wait for the ticker to tell you your table is ready, and then order old school staples like spinach dip with ridged potato chips, mozzarella triangles, and a steak or plate of duck confit. This place has plenty of cheap beers to choose from too, but their cocktails are definitely worth trying out.
