Summer in Atl = Patio Season

8 Patios for Sensational Summer Eats and Drinks

Summer in Atlanta consists of a series of brunch dates with bottomless mimosas, day parties, and evenings on the patio. Everyone is always on the lookout for the newest or proven favorite spots to patronize. I recently ran across a Jezebel list of patios for an “open-air affair” and had to share. Some, like O-ku and Gypsy Kitchen, are favorites of mine while others I’m looking forward to checking out, myself!

Check out the list below. Let me know if you’ve visited any of them. Add your favorite ATL patio in the comments!

1. Fuel up with Southern bites (and drinks, of course) on South City Kitchen Buckhead’s two-story patio before painting the town with your party posse. @fifthgroup

2. O-Ku is further elevating its happening rooftop scene with the addition of frosé—the perfect cocktail to pair with sushi and a view. @okuatlanta

3. Hit Basque in the Sun with your squad for a Sunday afternoon of day-drinking and people-watching over half-priced bottles of wine from Gypsy Kitchen’s swanky rooftop. @gypsykitchenatl

4. Bring your fur baby along to sunbathe on Smokebelly BBQ’s dog-friendly patio while you and your friends enjoy live music, cold suds and hot ’cue. @smokebellybbq

5. After touring Three Taverns Brewery in Decatur, head outside to sip A Night on Ponce IPA on the charming light-strung patio. @threetaverns

PS: Adding a couple more patios that I love!

6. Six Feet Under Pub & Fish House: Both locations are bustling seafood houses that  draw crowds thanks to their laid-back vibe & rooftop bars with city views.

7. bartaco West Midtown: Stylish Mexican spot serving serving classic & creative tacos along with a large drinks list. (Try the fried oyster tacos!)

8. Barcelona Wine Bar: With locations in Inman Park and West Midtown, Barcelona offers unvarnished paneling, a brick fireplace, and a shaded wraparound patio. Barcelona delivers Spanish flair to Atlanta with more than 200 wines straight from Spain and, of course, tapas.

COMING TO THE FOX THEATRE ONLY ON TUESDAY, APRIL 4 AND WEDNESDAY, APRIL 5

Brilliantly innovative, heartbreaking, and wickedly funny, Hedwig and the Angry Inch is the landmark American musical by John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask that is “groundbreaking and undoubtedly ahead of its time” (Entertainment Weekly). This genre-bending, fourth-wall-smashing musical sensation, with a pulsing score and electrifying performances, tells the story of one of the most unique characters to ever hit the stage. “Internationally ignored song stylist” Hedwig Robinson is out to set the record straight about her life, her loves, and the botched operation that left her with that “angry inch.”

Directed by Tony Award-winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening) and winner of four 2014 Tony Awards, Hedwig and the Angry Inch played to record-breaking sell-out crowds on Broadway and promises to take North America by storm with what Time Magazine proclaims is “the most exciting rock score written for the theatre since, oh, ever!

The members of Hedwig’s band “The Angry Inch” — aka “Tits of Clay” – will be music director Justin Craig (guitar and keyboards), Matt Duncan (bass), Tim Mislock (guitar), and Peter Yanowitz (drums), all of whom originated their roles on Broadway.

David Binder, who first produced Hedwig and the Angry Inch in 1997, produced the musical on Broadway with Jayne Baron Sherman, Barbara Whitman, Latitude Link, Patrick Catullo, Raise The Roof, Paula Marie Black, Colin Callender, Ruth Hendel, Sharon Karmazin, Martian Entertainment, Stacey Mindich, Eric Schnall, and The Shubert Organization. 101 Productions, Ltd were the executive producers. The record-breaking production ran for over 500 performances at the Belasco Theatre.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch was originally produced Off-Off-Broadway at Westbeth and then, under the direction of Peter Askin, ran over two years at the Jane Street Theatre beginning in February 1998. The musical won the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Musical and both John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask won Obies in 2001. It won a 1998 New York Magazine Award and Entertainment Weekly’s “Soundtrack of the Year” Award. Time Magazine named Hedwig the Top Musical of 1998.

The film of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, directed by John Cameron Mitchell, won the Audience Award and Best Director Awards at Sundance. Mitchell won the Best New Director from the National Board of Review, the Gotham Awards, and the LA Critics Society. Stage productions have played for many years in Japan and in 2008, Korea hosted a popular televised reality show about the search for a new star to play Hedwig.

The creative team for Hedwig and The Angry Inch features Emmy Award nominee Spencer Liff (musical staging), Tony Award nominee and Drama Desk Award winner Julian Crouch (scenic design), Tony Award and two-time Oscar nominee Arianne Phillips (costume design), four-time Tony Award winner Kevin Adams (lighting design), Mike Potter (hair and makeup design), Tony Award nominee and platinum- selling record producer Tim O’Heir (sound design), Benjamin Pearcy for 59 Productions (projection design), John Bair/Phosphene (animation), James Calleri (casting), Tony and Grammy Award nominee Ethan Popp (music supervisor & music coordinator), Justin Craig (music director), Stephen Gabis (dialect coach) and Johanna McKeon (associate director).
