Bocado's Brian Lewis and David Durnell have been working on an Inman Quarter cocktail bar for a while now, and the project is beginning to take shape. Durnell will lead the beverage program at Amer, and a few new details are available.

  • The bar is on track for a "likely November" opening, according to a release.
  • The drink menu, launching with 25 cocktails, will be divided into four sections: Shaken, Built, Sodas, and Stirred. The list will focus on bitters and Italian Amari. Beverages include the Electric Feel with white rum, passion fruit, yuzu, and sea salt; Bling Machine with vodka, citrus, blackberries, vanilla, ginger, and Chambord; and the Super Coke with the AMER ten Amari blend, clarified lime, and Mexican Coke.
  • Bocado chef Adam Waller will come up with a menu of savory snacks and small plates such as chips with charred onion dip; fried artichoke hearts and lemon; Buffala with trout caviar and fried leeks; Hamachi, green apples, and sunchokes; and an English muffin with local egg and pork belly.
  • The ambiance is inspired by 1970s Italian films and retro Amari labels. Look for bright yellow, deep indigo, bronze, and marble. Large accordion windows will complement mid-century furniture.
  • The space is small, with seating for 35 and an additional 12 in a private room.

Lewis previously told Eater Atlanta he wants Amer to be "the perfect place to begin the evening and end the evening," a place that falls "between the esoteric and the playful."

Among the other ventures opening in Inman Quarter over the next few months are Char Korean Bar & Grill, Richard Tang's Korean barbecue restaurant, and Beetlecat, Ford Fry's little sister to The Optimist.
