After several construction hiccups (to be expected in the industry), City Winery Atlanta opened its doors at Ponce City Market at the end of June.
Part urban winery, part music venue, part restaurant/bar, it’s the newest of the City Wineries founded by Michael Dorf, originator of New York City’s Knitting Factory music venue. In 2008, Dorf created the concept as a way to combine his love for food, music and wine. Executive Chef Jeffrey McGar’s menu features locally sourced ingredients in dishes with global and Southern influences, and portions are easy for concertgoers to share—think seasonally rotating flatbreads, risotto balls and a daily charcuterie selection. Seasonal cocktails include house-made bitters and mixers, and, of course, there’s an impressive curated 400-plus bottle wine list featuring City Winery-made wines. Concerts and live music are being added daily.
