FROM RESTAURANTS TO BARS TO BREWERIES, NEON LIGHTS UP THE LOCAL F&B SCENE
1. Bon Ton (pictured above)
Bright glass tubes spell out “Fancy Service” at Midtown’s Bon Ton. The tongue incheek sign is just the way the Cajun-meets- Vietnamese joint rolls. It’s all fun and good eats inside the retro den.
674 Myrtle St. N.E.
2. Le Fat
Luminous scrolled script welcomes guests to the French Colonial Vietnam atmosphere within Le Fat. Caged bright pink glows against gleaming white subway tile at Guy Wong’s Westside beauty.
935 Marietta St. N.W.
3. Monday Night Brewing
Fixed above the main entrance of this West Midtown brewery is its white-neon logo— a jacket-and-tie-clad, fist-pumping gent presumably fresh off the clock—lighting the way inside the lively space. Once inside, neon-lit block lettering invites patrons to “Tie One On”—a nod to both beer-fueled revelry and a wall hung with the colorful neckware.
670 Trabert Ave. N.E.
To match the motorcycle theme of Double Zero’s bar, red-and-blue neon lettering by artist Mike Rogers above the restaurant’s banquettes reads “Vanno Velocissime.” Translation: “going fast,” like the main mode of transportation in Naples—as well as your Neapolitan pizza. A second piece depicting a motorcycle key, also designed by Rogers, can be found near the bar.
1577 N. Decatur Rd.
The cocktail emporium and noodle bar doesn’t have a sign directing you. A long, dark hallway leads to twisted tubes formed into a chic emblem. The ambiance is futuristic noir straight out of Sci-Fi. Just try to resist snapping a photo while surrounded by the glow.
1170 Howell Mill Rd.
