This Atlanta spot self-bills as a cocktail den. It’s an apt title too, as the space is incredibly cozy. The signature cocktail list is mouthwatering, with drinks like the Pretty Gin Fizz, a mix of gin, elderflower liqueur, yuzu soda, and butterfly pea-basil tea. There are man caves, and then there mindfully put-together bars that function with the welcoming nature of a fully decked-out basement. The Parlor is very much the latter.

If you’re searching for the perfect place to enjoy postsupper sips, look no further than Parlor, a craft cocktail den hidden behind a pink door in Castleberry Hill. Alphonzo Cross, who owns the bar, explains that the idea was born out of a need for the in between, a place where people could interact without the hurry of a restaurant or fast pace of a club while still enjoying an elevated food and beverage program.
