Oh, hey! Creative Loafing Atlanta has a new monthly column, penned by yours truly, to “explore Atlanta’s bar scene through the eyes of distillers, bartenders, and anyone else who makes their living somewhere in the boisterous world of booze.”
Sounds fun, right? First up is Julian Goglia, who mans the bar at the Pinewood Tippling Room. This month, you’ll learn his favorite place for a drink in Atlanta, his stance on birthday cake vodka vs. whipped cream vodka, and the drink he wishes he invented. Read the whole thing here.
By the way, if you haven’t been there, the Pinewood Tippling Room is worth seeking out. Any place so bold as to call itself a tippling room sure better live up to that moniker. Luckily, they do just that. There’s plenty of whisky to choose from, and the cocktails lean to reverence for the classics, with a dash of irreverent playfulness thrown in. The Pinewood is just one year old now, but Julian and his fellow tipplers have given it the feel of a well-worn neighborhood hangout.
