While visiting Atlanta last month, my colleagues and I stopped at Sweet Georgia’s Juke Joint for some live jazz and Southern cuisine. Two of my colleagues are hard-core foodies, and they ordered an assortment of tasty treats from the dessert menu.
Oh, my! If I lived in Atlanta, I would come here every week. The food and the music are outstanding, and the ambiance is wonderful. From the website:
Sweet Georgia’s Juke Joint is the culmination of a deep history of music, food, drink and socializing in the South. Historically, juke joints originated in the rural outskirts of many southern towns to give African American communities a place to kick back and unwind after a long week of work. Sweet Georgia’s Juke Joint offers a dining and musical entertainment experience in downtown Atlanta, representing diverse culture, featuring music across all genres and popular hits throughout American history. An imaginative menu makes Sweet Georgia’s Juke Joint a staple in Atlanta’s downtown restaurant scene, and the allure of traditional juke joints is showcased in the restaurant’s design.
