I went for the first time to Grain with friends and we went roughly at 11:30pm on a Monday night and the place was small, but had plenty of open seats! This was a great bar to catch up with friends and I could also see it being a cute place to get drinks after a date too. I liked the classy and dark ambience to the bar. My friends Morgan and Katie ordered the Midtown Mule ($9). Morgan said this drink was too pungent for her but I personally liked it when I tried a sip. To me, the pineapple cancelled out an overly vodka taste! Katie said really liked it as well because the juices in it made it a little sweeter than a normal Moscow mule.For me, I ordered the Hemingway cocktail ($9). I believe this drink contained rum, lime juice, grapefruit juice, and a couple other of ingredients. It was too bitter for my taste so I found myself adding some lime and water to the cocktail. I would not get this drink again.The bartender was also extremely nice and I enjoyed speaking with him!
I visited Verde a few years ago and wasn't impressed; however, I was completely blown away during my last experience about a week ago. The service was fantastic and accommodating, especially considering our large group and multiple needs. The four dips (queso, salsa, black bean dip and guac) were amazing and possibly some of the best dips in the city. The quesadilla I had was pretty good. And, the margarita was great! I had one margarita and it was strong but not overbearing. The prices were great, and I had a fantastic time. I'm definitely going back.
Mondays and Wednesdays are more loungy and personal, but a great atmosphere and menu with great service and really really really hot bartenders! Now Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays are a different story at this place! HangOvers Buckhead owns the whole buckhead block with the best looking crowd, great music, cheap drinks, sexiest staff I have ever seen, and the staff is always so nice. Everything about this place is perfect and wouldn't change a thing. Great job guys!
This place has such a chic vibe! The decor is the first thing you notice, it's very beautiful. They have great specials on daiquiris, wings, and they even have all you can eat crab legs on Mondays! If you love live music, go on Fridays. They have a great cover band at night. The only con is the service. They can get pretty busy sometimes and the waitress is nowhere to be found. Overall, this place is really fun.
