Eat in Atlanta — 18 August 2016
New speakeasy opens downtown Atlanta, Georgia.
21 Plus Salute! Adults only, guaranteed.

By Hope S. Philbrick

If you really want to impress a date, this might do it:

Walk into a phone booth and come out looking like Superman.

Okay, so maybe you can’t quite pull that off as gallantly as Christopher Reeve.

Try this: Walk into a phone booth, dial a phone number and then push the back wall of the booth open, giving you and your date access to the hottest new bar in Atlanta, Georgia.

That you can now do, thanks to Red Phone Booth.

Red Phone Booth

You can find the London’s-calling style red phone booth at 17 Andrew Young International Boulevard Northeast.

If you were a regular customer of Prohibition, the space will look familiar, from the swirly earth-tone ceiling tiles to the leather couches to the published rules of the bar. It’s the same concept, tweaked a wee bit perhaps, in a new space.

A renovated space, to be accurate. Red Phone Booth is housed in 4,000 square feet on the ground floor of what was once Dailey’s. Up on the second floor, Amalfi Pizza, a traditional Neapolitan trattoria opening in September, will occupy the remainder of the building.

Red Phone BoothOnce Amalfi is open, you’ll be able to get the secret phone number for Red Phone Booth by dining up there, behaving yourself, tipping your server appropriately, and nicely asking your server for the code. Before then, if you were a Prohibition customer check your email for an informative announcement. Otherwise, it helps to know a guy or gal. I can’t print the phone number here, but if you email me and I know you and/or can vouch your genuine grownup-ness, I may give it to you.

Red Phone Booth is great fun thanks to its atmosphere but also because it serves great cocktails. The menu offers an extensive list of classic craft cocktail made with great attention to detail with ingredients like fresh-squeezed juice, hand-chipped double-reverse osmosis ice, rare liquors, dozens of tinctures, bitters and flavoring agents, and bartenders who take their work very seriously.

The place is also a cigar bar and while there’s a better ventilation system here than there was at Prohibition, you will smell smoke.

But unless smoke is your kryptonite, you can deal with it.

  1. Thank you for this article! I have heard of this place but I don’t know anyone with a membership. I wasn’t completely convinced the place existed until reading your article! Now, I am even more intrigued. I love cocktail experiences, especially ones that involve a little mystery! I’m going to try your (dining at Amalfi) suggestion. Thanks again!

      Thank you! 🙂
