Where to Drink Cocktails in Atlanta This Month
MARCH 10, 2021
While Atlantans aren’t cozying up for drinks at bars right now, that doesn’t mean bartenders have stopped slinging great cocktails. Unlike restaurants, bars must continue to limit the number of people allowed inside to no more than 50 people or 35 percent capacity, per the governor’s latest executive order. Despite hurdles caused by the pandemic, bars and bartenders continue to innovate how cocktails are created and served safely during the health crisis. Many bars are putting greater emphasis on outdoor seating on spacious patios, offering drink kits to compile at home, or taking advantage of a city or property’s open-container license with to-go cocktails to enjoy outside.
This cocktail map highlights some of Atlanta’s newest drinking destinations, cocktail services, and libation pop-ups to consider checking out this month.

Disclaimer: A number of restaurants on this map have resumed dine-in service. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases, please visit the Georgia Department of Health. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
