Where are Atlantans drinking right now? What's hot and new? Read on to find out.”

Bars on the list include:

*Bar Amalfi (Zagat says, “This breezy Home Park bar in the Piazza San Gennaro mini-complex conjures sunny thoughts of coastal Italy, with striped blue-and-white umbrellas and open-air cabanas draped in flowing linens.”)
