The Consolate is strong, sexy, powerful. If James Bond found himself in Atlanta, this is where he’d stop. The restaurant and bar combines international cuisine with an elegant atmosphere. Antique and modern art, including works by Warhol and Matisse, combine with purple velvet booths and black ceilings to create an aura that’s both intense and intimate. Rotating tapas highlight flavors from across the globe; the menu transforms every three months, but you might sample anything from Ethiopian lamb tibs to Korean BBQ duck. The bar—repurposed from an antique bed—specializes in craft cocktails that favor quality over quantity and precision over speed. Departing from chic, chrome-tinted minimalism, The Consolate is a timeless and indulgent feast for the senses, the perfect destination to reignite an old flame, or perhaps spark a new one.
