+ The Wrecking Bar Brew Pub
As a 20th-century Victorian-style home, a Methodist Protestant church, a dance school and most recently as the Wrecking Bar architectural antiques store, the journey to bring you an ever-changing selection of specialty beers brewed on site and craft pub food has been defined by fond memories made by notable Atlanta families. On June 19, 2011, Bob and Kristine Sandage began a new legacy, as the basement of the charismatic Victor H. Kriegshaber House was christened as the Wrecking Bar Brewpub!
Vowing to boldly go where no other brewpub has gone before, the Sandages warmly open their doors, inviting the neighborhood to enjoy this artisanal gathering spot for the community that took the support of a community to build.
+ Havana Club
The new Havana Club location pays tribute to its forefather, but also offers amenities and an unparalleled design that guests are bound to remember. The venue boasts 15,000 square feet of warm, rich decadence and with three distinct rooms, each complete with its own unique ambiance. Let the smooth music of Stage, uplifting energy of Studio and creative ingenuity of Gallery carry you away on an exotic escape to Havana.
The Havana Club has been a fixture on the Buckhead nightlife scene since it’s opening in March of 1996. Founded by seasoned entrepreneurs, The Havana Club has garnered a steady following and remained an influence on Buckhead Ave. in Buckhead until it’s closing in late August 2007 for the Streets of Buckhead project. The revamped Havana Club reopened to the public in December 2009.
The new, 15,000 square-ft venue boasts a custom-designed lighting and sound system, satellite television throughout, cedar-wood humidor stocking rare and exotic cigars, and on-site parking. Recommended by the Buckhead Coalition for three consecutive years: 2005, 2006, and 2007.
