UPDATE: OK, so apparently this issue is a couple months old. Still sorta interesting though!
Kimball House, Brick Store Pub, Paper Plane and Leon’s all placed among the Top 10 bars in Atlanta, according to Atlanta Magazine.
Here’s their full Top 10 list, with the Decatur spots bolded.
- Wrecking Bar
- Kimball House
- Brick Store Pub
- Paper Plane
- Porter Beer Bar
- The Sound Table
- Blind Willie’s
- Leon’s Full Service
Decatur’s Mac Magee (#18) and Pinewood (#27) also delivered a strong showing.
As to how they determined the rank, here’s the lowdown…
Each bar could score a maximum of 100 points—up to ten each for setting, food, activities, the mix of people, and service. Up to thirty points for quality and depth of drinks (this is a bars package after all). And finally, up to twenty points for the “X factor”—that ineffable quality that may defy easy description but nevertheless makes the place special. (Clermont, we’re looking at you.)
What do we think? Seem about right or do you feel an inebriated rant coming on?
