Atlanta, Georgia –– Bar Vegan, a new restaurant from the team behind Atlanta’s acclaimed vegan burger restaurant Slutty Vegan, will open on the Second Floor of Ponce City Market’s Central Food Hall this Sunday, February 28. From Slutty Vegan’s CEO and Founder Pinky Cole, the full-service restaurant and bar is part of the revolutionary vegan movement and will be open for nightly dinner, lunch at the bar and Sunday brunch. A grand opening celebration from 1-6pm on Sunday will give customers the chance to try
never-before-tasted bites from Cole, plus cocktails and more.
Bar Vegan aims to be bold, memorable and experiential, introducing Atlanta to “bar theatre.” The restaurant will offer a fun, high energy atmosphere with exciting and exotic visual presentations of food and drink. Guests can expect really good vegan bar food – think hearty salads, savory egg rolls, flavorful cauliflower wings, and must-have cheesesteaks, sweet potato tots and more surprises from Cole.
With a heavy focus on the beverage program, Bar Vegan will offer beer, wine and “experience cocktails” that are made tableside. The Foreign Fruit Punch will be served in an “Active Smokey Volcano,” and other cocktails may come in a fire extinguisher, gas can, ferris wheel or bank safe, complete with musical sound bites. The beverage team will also serve adapted versions of classic cocktails, like margaritas, cosmopolitans, old fashioneds, lemon drop martinis and more, and utilize organic, fresh-squeezed juices. A “Shaken Not Slurred” mocktail menu will also be available.
Bar Vegan’s vibe will be poppy and trendy, with accents of love throughout and multiple focal walls and design elements for guests to capture memorable photos within the space. A private dining space will be available for events, large gatherings and celebrations. “Today’s culture is exploring the truth, and the truth that we’re walking into is that, as a community, we are beginning to eat healthier and focus more on the things we put into our bodies,” says Cole. “Bar Vegan’s aim is to create an enjoyable experience for those who want to eat well and enjoy a bit of fun and flare, while still maintaining the vegan lifestyle.”
