CalaBar & Grill
CalaBar & Grill has won the love of Atlanta’s West Indian community for its spot-on flavors and celebratory atmosphere. Balancing contemporary southern invention with Jamaican flavor, the eatery serves up entrées ranging from traditional favorites like ackee and saltfish and whole fried snapper to innovative plates like curry seafood and conch fritters. The colorful yet relaxed decor is an ode to the Caribbean, providing the perfect lounge to linger on the patio for a while. We love the food, but the events are what really makes CalaBar stand out. Swing by on a Wednesday for $2 tacos and $5 rum punch, or wait for the weekend for a party vibe. Special events include Thursday’s “Gal Farm” (women get in free until midnight), and live music Fridays, featuring jazz, R&B, funk, blues, and neo-soul. Music, dancing, and good food make for some of the best energy in the A.
