Leave of Absence’s 38,000 square foot rooftop is more of an experience than it is a mere bar. Once you make it through the slightly intricate entry process that starts with parking at The Interlock on the Westside, you can opt to hit the restaurant, the pool, or the grove. We recommend that you grab a drink at the bar, then wander around outside to soak up the view of the Atlanta skyline or head up a short set of stairs for views overlooking the pool. They’ve got light bites at the bar like lobster rolls and their LOA burger, but since the food isn’t very memorable, we recommend sticking to the drinks and the views unless you’re planning on visiting the restaurant. Side note: if you want to sip drinks poolside, there’s a $30 cover after 3pm on weekdays and all day on weekends. The grove, which houses a bar and a garden area with olive trees and fire pits, is the only spot where you don’t need a reservation.
