Where to Nab an After-Work Drink in Atlanta

Edgar’s Proof & Provision (659 Peachtree St. N.E.,  Atlanta. 5 p.m.-midnight Tuesdays-Thursdays, 5 p.m.-2 a.m. Fridays-Saturdays. 404-897-5045, proofandprovision.com). If a speakeasy feel sans the cheesiness is your thing, this bar in the basement of the Georgian Terrace hotel, with its exposed brick, high-backed leather booths and barrel-aged drinks, should fit the bill. The perfectly named Firm Handshake — Redemption rye whiskey, Demerara syrup, Boker’s bitters and Leopold fernet — is given a kick by the mintiness of the fernet, an herbal digestif. For a snack, order the chipotle and soy marinated flank steak jerky. For something more substantial, the grilled cheese gets foodie points for using fontina, pecorino spread and truffle butter.
