Tavern 99 closes in Buckhead

BarTavern 99, located at 128 East Andrews Drive in Buckhead, has closed. The restaurant shut its doors following its 3rd annual ATL’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve party.

I am personally sad to see it go as it had become one of my favorite music venues in Atlanta. Ed Roland, Marc Broussard, Pat McGee, David Ryan Harris, James Otto, Levi Lowrey, Ernie Halter and John Driskell Hopkins are just some of the musicians to grace its stage recently.  Thanks for the great memories, Tavern 99…I’ll miss you.

UPDATE: Tavern 99 posted the following statement on Facebook: “To all of our great fans who have supported us over the years we want to thank you.  Tavern 99 has been sold.  The new owners will be renovating the restaurant and reconcepting it.”
