Here’s What to Know About That Multilevel Restaurant Opening at the Works

Damsel brings two levels of dining and live entertainment, a rooftop lounge, and a dance club to the Underwood Hills complex this fall

More details are emerging about the latest restaurant from Dave Green (the Select) opening at the Works complex in Underwood Hills this fall.

At 10,000 square feet spread out over two levels, including a rooftop lounge, Damsel is described as a “restaurant and showplace” featuring a variety of live entertainment nightly and a downstairs dining room that transforms into a dance club later in the evening.

Expect outdoor seating opening to the linear park at the Works on the entry level of Damsel. A large staircase connects the first and second floors, each with their own bars, which leads to a lounge and Damsel’s private club upstairs and to the rooftop bar.

As for food, look for three separate menus at Damsel. The main dining room downstairs offers tapas-style small plates and entrees, while the private club sticks to “elevated cuisine” and the lounge leans into bar food and “interactive display cooking,” according to the press release. The one consistency at Damsel is its focus on live entertainment, which there should be no shortage of regardless of where people choose to sit.

Earlier this month, Green and longtime business partner chef Tom Murphy closed their restaurant Paces and Vine after nearly a decade at Vinings Jubilee. It’s being replaced by another location of Hobnob Neighborhood Tavern this summer.

Damsel joins Taste Wine Bar, Chattahoochee Food Works, Brash Coffee cafe, Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q, Fetch dog park and bar, gaming venue Your 3rd Spot, and Scofflaw Brewing Co. now open at the Works. Drew and Brittany Fancher, the owners of mobile bar business Aero Bar Atlanta, should open their new cocktail lounge at the complex later this year.
