New Irwin St. Cocktail Bar Will Cater to the ‘Middle-Aged’ Crowd

Lingering Shade Social Club promises a “low-key” vibe and a menu of small plates

Lingering Shade is located directly on the Beltline next to Irwin Street Market

Cocktail bar Lingering Shade Social Club is now open on Irwin Street at the intersection of the Eastside Beltline trail at Irwin Street Market. The bar hopes to target a very specific niche market—the middle-aged crowd—owner and Old Fourth Ward native Lewis Jeffries told Atlanta Magazine last spring.

What age actually defines “middle-aged” is up for debate, but Jefferies promises a “low-key” vibe for those who may be seeking a more subdued evening from that of the area’s often boisterous bar and restaurant scene.

Lingering Shade offers classic cocktails, ten local beers on tap, wine, and a food menu focused on shared plates and snacks such as deviled eggs, onion dip, and boiled peanuts.

In addition to a bright and airy interior with a large, wraparound bar and floor-to-ceiling windows which open onto the Beltline, Lingering Shade’s dog-friendly patio features an outdoor fireplace.

Open Monday - Friday. 4 p.m. to 12:30 a.m.; Saturday and Sunday, 12 p.m. to 12:30 a.m.

Lingering Shade, 660 Irwin Street NE, Atlanta.
