The Harp, a restaurant and bar located in the old Harp Transmission building, is now open on Memorial Drive across from Augustine’s in Grant Park. Owned by siblings Jarrett Gray and Joy Gray Prince, the self-service taproom includes 30 beers and 10 wines and champagne on tap purchased and tracked via an RFID-enabled bracelet.

The restaurant is currently BYOB while awaiting its liquor license.

At nearly 3,000 square feet, the Harp seats around 300 people between its dining room and two generously sized patios. Both patios, which feature corn hole and other games like life-sized versions of Jenga and tic-tac-toe, are expected to open by spring and seat up to 200 people. Along with several televisions inside for catching a game, weekend activities like yoga and retail pop-ups are in the works.

The Harp offers both lunch and dinner, and eventually weekend brunch. The opening menu features a burger, wings, salads, “award-winning” mac and cheese, and a fried chicken sandwich among its current offerings. Beyond beer and wine on tap, the bar also serves cocktails.

Eater Atlanta reached out to the Harp for more details.

The Harp isn’t the only new restaurant addition to open over the last year along the Memorial Drive corridor. Chefs Duane Kulers and Nhan Le (8Arm, Octopus Bar) opened their counter-serve taco joint Supremo Taco across the parking lot from Grindhouse Killer Burgers last October. Wonderkid, a diner collaboration between the King of Pops crew and Big Citizen restaurant group’s Darren Carr and Eric Simpkins (Bon Ton, The Lawrence) opened in December at the Atlanta Dairies complex.

Chef Richard Tang (Char Korean Bar & Grill) expects to open his Asian seafood boil restaurant Girl Diver by spring at Madison Yards on the corner of Memorial Drive and Bill Kennedy Way.
