Scenes From a Holiday Bar Crawl Through Atlanta

Peek inside six holiday bars, from Midtown to Marietta

There’s an overabundance of holiday bars (and ice rinks and igloo dining) around metro Atlanta this year. For those who’ve lost count on the number of bars making themselves over for the holidays, there are two in Marietta, two in Midtown, two in Inman Park, one Downtown, and one in Decatur. It’s borderline ridiculous. But, in the spirit of giving this season (and service journalism,) Eater Atlanta crawled six of the eight holiday bars — from Midtown to Marietta — capturing the scenes at each along the way.
