There’s nowhere else in Atlanta like Burn Social Club. This is a much needed addition to the Buckhead nightlife scene. I’m amazed at what the management team has done with the former East Andrews Upstairs. What makes Burn Social Club Buckhead’s best new establishment? Well, it’s really all the finer things…
Ambiance – similar to Prohibition, the door for Burn is hidden. It’s tucked away on the second floor of the Andrews Entertainment District. When we arrived and entered through the secret door, we were greeted by a team of hosts, including the GM, where we were whisked away to our table. Nestled among leather couches, dark wooden panels, and dim lighting, it was easy to switch into lounge mode.
Cocktails – Tom McGuire is at it again! He helped to put Prohibition on the map and is one of the South’s premier mixologists. Of course I had to try the Belle of the Ball cocktail with vanilla vodka, peach shrub, sparkling wine, and a white-tea peach foam that Tom referred to as “vegan whipped cream”. Seriously ladies, it’s like having a champagne cocktail with whipped cream (sans dairy). As the menu states “Even Scarlett never had it this good!” My husband said the Burn Old Fashioned was one of the best he’s ever had.
Food – the menu here offers the best of East Andrews. For appetizers, there’s a selection of flat breads, shrimp cocktail served in a martini glass, oysters, and other fare. Entrees include lobster salad, ahi tuna and beef tenderloin. You can also order select sushi from Czar Ice Bar next door. Master sushi chef Saito Saito does such amazing (and tasty) work!
Entertainment – Burn has also brought on celebrated personality Tribble Reese as a managing partner. While Burn Social Club has been thriving since opening earlier this summer, Tribble saw the opportunity to take the venue a step further to revolutionize the Atlanta nightlife scene. Keeping with the fiery ambiance, Burn will continue to set the stage for live music and renowned DJs with the latest LED lighting and state of the art sound for crowds to dance the night away on the massive dance floor or relax in plush VIPS seating lounge. There’s also a private loft area above the dance floor that I would love to reserve for my next big night out.
