Tacos and DIY Cocktails in Buckhead
Welcome back. We trust you had a good holiday. Hope you’re feeling well rested.
Because tomorrow, you’re taking the bull by the horns...
As far as your gin cocktails are concerned.
Say hello to Cook Hall
, a dark and rustic bar for burgers, brunches and self-spiking beverages,
opening tomorrow in the old Market spot at the W Buckhead.
As far as hotel bars go, this... isn’t one. It’s more like a watering hole from a Tombstone bordello,
circa 1907. Everything here is vintage
. From the clocks to the faded black-and-white framed photos to the
crystal punch bowl that holds your Howitzer Gun Punch
(that’s rye, pinot noir, black tea,
Bénédictine and one ladle).
Our suggestion: use this as a starting point before ascending up to Whiskey Blue. Grab a spot at the bar’s
double-sided wooden banquette and summon some crispy duck tacos and Welsh rarebit with a fried quail egg
. Then, order a drink. Or, better
yet, invent one.
Yup, ask, and they’ll put together a cocktail kit for you at the bar. You’ll get a metal basket stocked
with your chosen spirit (go with vodka), a mixer (go with Bloody Mary mix) and a glass of fresh herbs.
It’s thyme time.
