Georgia Bartender's Ball This Sunday at CosmoLava

By Christopher Hassiotis | January 24, 2014 By Christopher Hassiotis  |  January 24, 2014

The 2014 Georgia Bartender's Ball takes place this Sunday, January 26, at CosmoLava. The popular annual event isn't just for hospitality industry folks, though it's always packed with those who want to see their co-workers succeed - it's open to the public. Over the past several weeks voting's taken place in both Best Bartender and Best Bar categories, with 20 individual nominees in each. Those making the list run the gamut, from foodie favorites like 4th & Swift and Local Three to barbecue joints like Smoke Ring, and to party spots like East Andrews, Tongue & Groove and F.R.O.G.S. Cantina. Prizes include a trophies, cash and gift cards. The Midtown lounge complex CosmoLava comprises three levels and six separate bars, and funds raised at this year's ball benefit Atlanta Fundraising Foundation and Designated Driver Alternative. There's an open bar the first hour of the event ($10 online; 8 PM-2:30 AM; 45 13th St. NW; 404-873-6189).
