Forget A Kroger: 5 Atlanta Establishments That Really Need A Bar

Five Points Bar
Picture By Creative Loafing

With news that the new grocery store near Glenwood Ave. has its own beer and wine bar (sup gentrification), I couldn’t help but think of all the other Atlanta establishments that could really benefit from a bar. So, here goes:

Publix: You know what would really make shopping a pleasure? A bar. Publix is obviously wayyy better than Kroger (not up for debate), so I can only imagine how epic a bar inside of Publix would be. BOGO cocktails, chicken tender samples while you turn up, the possibilities are truly endless.

Decatur Library: No need to go crazy here. A simple wine bar will do. Who doesn’t love a good book with a glass of vino?

Five Points Marta Station: Yeah, I’m sure a bar at Five Points Marta Station would do way more harm than good. But it might actually be needed for most commuters. Actually, you know what? Scratch that. How about a mobile bar on all Marta trains? I’m here for it.

The Varsity: They already have the food that drunk people love, so why not offer a brewski with that Yankee Dog with Strings, and other greasy delights.

The Passport Agency On Peachtree Street: I don’t know about you all, but the Atlanta Passport Agency is up there with the DMV. The wait is insanity. And by the time you’re done with it all, a Happy Hour is likely calling your name. And if they were to ever open their own bar, a cutesy, global-themed lounge with sake cocktails, caipirinhas, and other international dranks would be the move.

Vegans rejoice! With the announcement of Baileys Almande, you can now enjoy the boozy decadence that is Baileys liqueur. The dairy free, gluten free liqueur is made using Baileys’ own almondmilk, which is a blend of sweet almond oil and almond essence (extracted from crushed almonds), cane sugar, and purified water with a touch of real vanilla

A description for Baileys Almande Almondmilk Liqueur on the Baileys website, states the following:

“Introducing a delicious and light tasting spirit from Baileys made with real almondmilk. This smooth spirit blends the luscious, nutty flavors of real almondmilk and real vanilla to create a versatile drink. Serve over crushed ice or mix with coconut water for a delicious summer cocktail.”

I’m not vegan, but I do love almond milk (it makes thee best smoothies), so I’m very curious as to how this newest addition to the Baileys line will taste.

Grey Goose La Pursuit

Grey Goose has released their latest commercial, an almost fairy tale-like visual titled “La Pursuit,” which serves as an accompaniment to the brand’s Fly Beyond campaign. The whimsical commercial, created by BBDO Worldwide, follows a young group as they quite literally hit the clouds in search of Grey Goose’s winged icon.

“‘Fly Beyond’ is a timeless platform,” David Lubars, chief creative officer of BBDO Worldwide, said in a statement obtained by AdWeek. “Our job was to make it relevant for what’s happening today. In the end, you want people looking at every part of the campaign thinking, ‘I want to be part of that.'”

Drake’s Virginia Black Whiskey Is “Good For Your Soul”

Drake Virginia Black Whiskey

With the announcement of his new Virginia Black Whiskey, Canadian rapper Drake serves as the latest Hip Hop artist to try their luck in the world of spirits. Details on this Lushworthy venture have gradually been revealed through Drake’s social media accounts and on the Virginia Black Whiskey website.

Most recently, Drizzy posted a promo video for the whiskey on Instagram. In a caption for the teaser, Drake revealed that the whiskey is “good for your soul.” That’s pretty much most whiskeys, sooo…yeah. Regardless, I’m quite intrigued by Drake’s boozy venture, which is described as “a personally selected collection of two, three and four-year old bourbons finished with a decadent profile.” Yummy.

A release date and a price point for Virginia Black Whiskey remain unknown, but I’m sure we’ll receive that info in the very near future.

Check out Drake’s Virginia Black Whiskey teaser video, below.

Good for your soul. @virginiablackwhiskey

How To Score A Free Drink On Your Next Flight

Free Drink Flight

When you’re wedged between two people on a cross-country flight, a free cocktail can be a godsend. But wait, how does one acquire this free drink? Well, there’s actually a number of ways to score a free drink on your next flight. Check out my personal tips for getting you hands on a free drink while flying the friendly skies. Cheers!

Hope For The Worst

This may seem a little backwards, but I’ve scored several drinks on flights because of ill circumstances. Both incidents were on Southwest flights. The first was because our flight was delayed by about an hour. And I’m pretty sure the second was a pity drink. A friend and I found ourselves seated in the second to last row on our flight. Trust me, you never want to find yourself in the second to last row. That’s where they seat toddlers accused of murder and other hooligans. Okay, not really, but it is pretty rough. You do highly increase your chances of a free, pity drink though.

Join A Rewards Program

Southwest Rapid Rewards Free Drink

While it may seem like eons before you can score a free flight through a rewards program, working your way up to a free drink or two isn’t nearly as hard. Rewards programs do differ depending on the airline, so be sure to ask your preferred airline about any boozy perks linked with their rewards program.
