Secret Crushes

so u know your girl is always on the grind for you :-) i love visiting new spots in the city and i had the great fortune to get an invitation from one of my favorite guy friends (hey Keith! :-)to check out one of the Hottest new spots in this magic city, The Museum Bar off Ralph Abernathy.

The Museum Bar has been getting much pub lately...they hosted Fantasia's listening party...the recent meet and greet with Tyler Perry's cast of his new show "For Better or Worse" premiering this month..and I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek at the local r&b sensation Fillipia's show on Thanksgiving nite!

Ahhhhh....The Museum Bar.i am crushing on you! :-) all u have to do is login to their website and u too will be instantly transported to the smooth, sexxy ambiance that this awe-inspiring space delivers...and the sheer versatility delighted my event planning mind....from the moment u step up the stairs to the canopy and walk thru the heavy plate glass door..i was truly impressed with the gorgeous bars on every level..the main open air kitchen and brunch space...the 3rd floor huge patio with skyline views..and the main attraction downstairs is a full venue space for concerts, parties..and a nightclub style dance floor and of's own dedicated bar...

I had the great pleasure of speaking with one of the owners, Darrell Smith..he was such an interesting gentleman..and spoke of his inspiration for this bar to showcase his jaw dropping private collection of art work..and the desire to give the gorgeous people of atlanta a place to meet, greet, relax and kick back in a space inspired by the design aesthetic of the W hotel properties. And this starkly modern vibe in a 100 year old gothic church? genius!

Well Mr. Smith here's to u and the Museum Bar..ATLBROWNGIRL's new crush..and I hope soon to be yours too. Bon appetit!

Special Feature: Harbour Bar and Fish House

OMG..I am in love! :-) This big ole juicy spot in downtown decatur has taken over the spot formerly occupied by the mexican spot Tesoro..and oh mama! Have they completely transformed the is a totally delightful seafood experience..when u step thru the doors of this fish house u can literally hear Jimmy Buffett singing in your head and feel like u are in one of those fish spots in Key West..they have a full complement of fried fish baskets..chef entrees..sandwiches..salads and even a kiddie menu that even the most discriminating kid tatse bud would be pleased..and here's the kicker..the hushpuppies are delish! U see I'm a southern girl and if your hushpuppies are not on point..well it will wreck your whole dining experience..but trust ur girl..pretty much everything on the menu is a solid choice..when u stop by tell the Manager Linda that atlbrowngirl sent u in! And make sure when the weather breaks u check out their gorgeous wrap around porch. there are plans to even offer crab boils in the can you resist a crab boil? :-0

As ur girl is always on the scene checking out the newest and hottest openings, they have just opened this week and are still fine-tuning the menu. A little birdie told me that they plan to offer some lunch specials in the near future..And if u are the oak grove neighborhood check out their sister restaraunt and another atlbrowngirl favorite..Napoleons..smooches!
