Sometimes change is a good thing. So a friend and I headed out to a new restaurant near the new Hyatt in Midtown Atlanta. The hotel is being built but already has a great thing going for it with the location and strong southern restaurant scene.
Wathen’s Single Barrel
Wathen’s Single Barrel Bourbon is a Kentucky Bourbon. I like it best served on the rocks. Not the crushed ice kind, but a big block of ice will do.
This Bourbon is new to me and I found it has a sweet finish.
Speaking Of New
The new Atlanta restaurant is called Empire State South. This place brings a little New York to the South and serves drinks with style. It’s a relatively new restaurant near the soon to be new Hyatt in Midtown Atlanta.
The mixologists here know how to make a proper drink. Just check out their selection of house made mixers. A friend highly recomends the “rumble in the Ramble” which is a Bourbon mixed drink.
The Hyatt is still being built but it is looking like a great property alreay with the location. If you visit this Hyatt when it opens, Empire State South Restaurant is just next door, complete with their bar and bocce ball grassy patio for you to relax with a bourbon southern style.
