“Sorry, can’t tonight. Gotta go see about some smoked ice cubes.”
“See me dancing? Look how good I am at dancing.”
All things you might say in and around Burn Social Club, a dark and leathery new establishment where you’ll go to dance, but also to probably drink some gin with arugula in it, opening Wednesday in Buckhead. (Here’s what it looks like.)
Pretty much anything you’re going to need for your various late-night exploits will be readily available here. A stage and dance floor. Leather sofas and bookshelves.
And to ensure proper utilization, note the following:
You’ll enter through a discreet door in Czar Ice Bar.
Before you: two working fireplaces, a very large bar and backlit panels with hand-painted flames all over them.
You have choices.
To your left: a stage. People will be playing Rat Pack-y live music up there. To your right: built-in bookshelves, leather sofas and West Coast oysters on the half shell.
The bar. Heed that.
It’s where things like Rocket Smashes with gin and arugula exist. And Old Fashioneds with smoked ice cubes in them. Also, 50 rare bourbons.
Which will probably make you want to dance.
And you can do that on the dance floor.
It’s perfect for that.
