Great Food, Better History


What began as a deli located on the street-level floor of an Atkins Park home built in 1910 is Atlanta’s oldest continuously licensed tavern.

Atkins Park Tavern, celebrating its 95th anniversary, is known for its good food, better beer and rich history. Originally opened as a delicatessen in 1922, the smart-casual restaurant mysteriously received its liquor license in 1927, six years before Prohibition ended in 1933.

In 1983, the same year he founded the Virginia-Highland Summerfest, the late Warren Bruno purchased Atkins Park and transformed the restaurant into a popular hot spot of the Virginia-Highland area.
