Read my review of GRAIN Bar:

GRAIN bar, open in the heart of Midtown Atlanta, serves small bites and craft cocktails. The small restaurant has inside and outdoor seating but the bar is where all the action is. Settle in to the bar at GRAIN and watch veteran bartender whip up one dazzling concoction after another. Not sure what to order? Don’t worry, just give Bob and idea of what you like and he’ll create a customer cocktail for you. He even does fantastic mocktails so delicious, you won’t miss the booze one bit.

There’s far more to GRAIN than just cocktails and mocktails. They have a variety of oysters from all over. If you are an oyster lover you won’t want to miss out on this. Plus, GRAIN offers an oyster happy hour weekdays from 3 to 6pm. Oysters are just one buck each. Other highlights include incredible charcuterie options, including a Mortadella Mousse with pistachio macaroons.

Now, an order of oysters, charcuterie selections and some of GRAIN’s salted caramel popcorn is a perfect light dinner. But did you know, there’s an incredible vegetarian options to be found at GRAIN? Although the menu isn’t huge, the options are largely vegetarian. The Gazpacho and Pesto Ravioli are two of the vegetarian dishes we quite enjoyed. Although a salad of Burrata, strawberries and white asparagus was enjoyable, I felt the price of $17 was a bit on the high side.

GRAIN is perfect for the late night crowd. It is open every day from 3 pm until 3 am except Sundays when it closes at midnight.
