Paper Crane


541 Edgewood Ave SE, Atlanta

Paper Crane Lounge is hidden on the second floor of Staplehouse and feels a bit like a super villain’s lair. Instead of a swivel chair and a large ominous button, though, you’ll find high-end cocktails and a very short menu of upscale bar food - which means you can get a taste of Staplehouse without spending a whole paycheck. There’s a rotating list of ambiguously named drinks, like the Disco Nap and Masterpiece Theatre with descriptions such as “breezy,” “graceful,” and “intuitive,” instead of a list of ingredients. But just like the drinks downstairs, all of them are excellent.
