Keegan’s Irish Pub was founded with the purpose of sharing the tradition of the Irish “public house” where people would gather and tell stories. With that in mind, Keegan’s is a family-friendly pub that does its part to build a greater sense of community in the Atlanta metropolitan area.
Patrons at Keegan’s are treated to a menu that includes Irish plates, but most dishes have a Southern flare. The pub serves signature cocktails, 20-ounce drafts, and bottled beers. For an extra treat, Keegan's also hosts musical performers every Friday and Saturday evening.
El Sol Mexican Bar & Grill
El Sol Mexican Bar and Grill serves Tex-Mex with a Cuban flair. The restaurant serves at least nine different kinds of margaritas, including its house mix and a jalapeño margarita. Those at the bar can also choose from a selection of wines, beers, and mixed drinks. El Sol also offers soft drinks and natural fruit juice.
While the bar is a large draw, El Sol Mexican Bar and Grill is still a family-friendly establishment. The restaurant has plenty of booths and tables, bright yet gentle lighting, and a festive, welcoming feel to it.
Eleanor’s is a bar inside of Muss Turner’s restaurant. Affectionately named after Eleanor Seale, a good friend of the restaurant’s founders, the bar is infused with the energy of its namesake. Every now and then, Eleanor makes an appearance at the restaurant and brings a guest to discuss a certain cause.
Patrons who visit the bar are treated to draft beers, a selection of wines, and mixed drinks called Eleanor's Cocktails. The names of those drinks are references to pop culture. For example, there is a drink called Bey Hive — it’s a mixture of Barr Hill Gin, Suze, elderflower, and lemon.
Zama Mexican Cuisine & Margarita Bar
Zama Mexican Cuisine & Margarita Bar has a full menu of Mexican foods, but guests are always welcome to make a beeline to the bar. The restaurant boasts its margaritas. There are six to choose from, including the Zama margarita which contains silver tequila and orange liqueur. There is also a large selection of beers (draft, imported, and domestic), vino, mojitos, and daiquiris, but the main draws are the margaritas. Zama also touts its friendly service.
