Didn't catch his name, but the gentleman behind the bar at Repast (620 N Glen Iris Dr) is a cocktailian, and the bar at The Glenn Hotel (110 Marietta NW) is stocked for one. Bring a few recipes and take advantage of their Maraschino, Chartreuse, and the like.

there appears to be another mixologist in Atlanta -- Greg Best at Eugene.

unfortunately, the few drink recipes of his that I've located online have tended toward the vodka and fruit end of things...(perhaps out of commercial necessity?)

Don't believe everything you read. The proof is in the pudding, or in this case the glass. I've had several cocktails at Eugene and can tell you Greg is very dedicated to what he does in spite of the fact that commercial vodka drinks are the commercial necessity to keep a bar open. But just ask him to serve you a good drink and he won't disappoint you.

Andrew Minchow is the man behind the bar at Repast.

Although I certainly haven't been in every city in the country, I do spend more than my share of time traveling.

From what I've seen, Manhattan has to be considered the first city of cocktails in the US.

I'd nominate San Francisco as the second and Atlanta would be third.

Before you flame me for being too simplistic, Seattle, among other cities has a very real cocktail culture but the state run alcohol distribution system in Washington leaves a lot of bar chefs scratching their heads when it comes to ingredients.

(There's a reason Robert Hess wears a bulging coat whenever he goes out.)

Other places like Florida are more geared to the tourist drinker where the trendy fair resembles the pages of a glossy fashion magazines more than the pinnacle of the art of bartending.
