And Announcing the newest venues to Buckhead….

Burn Supper Club in The East Andrews Entertainment District

Grand Opening Wednesday, July 15th

11248147_354827868055315_5183184127668874834_n“Inspired by the supper clubs of the 30s and 40s, Burn is a true social club where guests gather to socially eat and drink, be entertained and enjoy the company of friends,” said Andrews Entertainment District President Steve de Haan. “Burn was created as a nightlife alternative. Atlanta doesn’t lack for places to take a date for dinner, but does not have many upscale venues to go to after dinner where the energy is high, yet is still intimate enough to carry on a conversation. A place to be entertained by true performers, and not just musicians, our goal is to marry the timeless sophistication of Prohibition with premier entertainment and dancing.” Patrons will enter through a door inside Czar Ice Bar marked with a martini symbol and seated by a maître d (there’s a $10 cover charge after 10 p.m.). Menu options include a margarita flatbread, jumbo black tiger shrimp cocktail, seared ahi tuna, Caprese salad, chicken satay, and beef tenderloin medallions.

At the grand opening July 15th, Burn will have a 13-piece Latin band for salsa dancing (monthly salsa nights are in the works). Rat Pack-style music will play on Thursdays, with Friday and Saturdays focused on Top 40 hits. There will be two shows each night, at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m., each playing a different set.

The Whiskey Mistress-Late Summer 2015



Whisky Mistress will be hosted by Atlanta’s Best in the Hospitality Industry. Frank Sacchinelli will be serving up cocktails with style at Buckhead’s newest hotspot!
