There’s a new mixed-use development in town. Bazati, located next to New Realm Brewery inside the Common Ground development, opened in August. Bazati features a Parisian-inspired restaurant, The Brasserie; a Yucatan-influenced rooftop bar, Estrella; and an assortment of specialty shops. “We were influenced by several businesses in Paris that offer a single place where gifts and impulse items are purchased and an aperitif can be enjoyed,” says partner/owner Scott Wilkins.
“We’re a place for people visiting the BeltLine to pop in and out any time of the day, whether they’re looking to enjoy coffee and a pastry for breakfast, a meal, or drink at The Brasserie or Estrella, or pick up an item from one of our shops.”
Bazati offers “travel-minded” products and gifts—think Yucatecan textiles, leather wares, handmade sunglasses, fresh flowers and books. The Brasserie boasts airy, 23-foot ceilings, Parisian-style cafe tables and a 3,000-squarefoot patio. Helmed by Chef Remi Granger, formerly of Bread & Butterfly, the cuisine is decidedly brasserie-style, offering steak frites, croque monsieur and coq au vin. The drink menu is largely comprised of French wines and Paris-inspired cocktails.
On the roof, guests can take in the views while sipping classic Latin cocktails at Estrella, which evokes the flavors of Yucatan in its small plates and entrees created by Chef Roberto Solis.
“Bazati is meant for guests to make it what they want,” says Wilkins. “Every visit can be a different experience.”
