Cocktail bar Draw Bar opens this spring at the emerging Interlock development currently under construction on the corner of Howell Mill Road and 14th Street on Atlanta’s westside. Part of the Bellyard Hotel at the complex, Draw Bar resides off of the lobby on the third floor and features a bar and lounge as well as an outdoor terrace.
At 98 seats between the lounge, tables, and the bar and a 62-seat terrace with views of the city skyline, Draw Bar will offer 25 cocktails and a selection of over 250 spirits on the menu paired with what’s described as “elevated” bar bites.
Draw Bar joins outdoor bar Holiday Bar, self-service beer and cider bar Pour Taproom, Velvet Taco, Cathy’s Gourmet Ice Cream Sandwiches, and Puttshack at the Interlock. Slater Hospitality, the group behind Ponce City Market’s Nine Mile Station, Skyline Park, and tower cocktail bar RFD Social, plans to open a restaurant and outdoor bar on the roof of the Interlock.
The Interlock is one of three large mixed-used projects featuring residences, restaurants, and retail planned for a stretch of Howell Mill from 14th to 8th streets. The $450 million complex includes apartments, the 161-room boutique hotel the Bellyard, restaurants, retail, and a members-only pool and lounge on the roof. The complex will also house incubator space from Georgia Technology Ventures and a location of co-working company WeWork.
Alabama-based coffee shop and roastery Prevail Roasters recently opened at the new Star Metals development on Howell Mill Road. The coffee shop is located on the ground floor residence lobby of the complex. Beer and wine bar SMR Tap could also open some time this winter at Star Metals. Once construction is complete, Star Metals will include office, retail, and restaurant space, over 400 apartments with amenities like a rooftop pool and a dog park, and a 176-room hotel.
