Poncey-Highland’s iconic Manuel’s Tavern—which received an overhaul last year—is slated to spawn a new bar in Grant Park. Sort of.

Eater Atlanta reports that plans are in place for the creation of “Manny’s Grant Park Pub” in an old row of brick commercial buildings just south of Oakland Cemetery.

The new watering hole will occupy two storefronts at the corner of Boulevard and Woodward Avenue, a block north of Interstate 20, where Stone Soup Kitchen used to be.

It’s a concept by Manuel Maloof, an Atlanta restaurateur who’s part of the extended family behind Highland Avenue stalwart Manuel’s Tavern.

Paces Properties, who has owned the multi-unit building since 2016, has leased two retail spaces to Manny’s and a space to Jimmy John’s, leaving one retail space still available.

Manny’s will feature a dining patio, small game room, an extensive wine list, nearly two dozen beers on draft, and even alcoholic slushies. (Frozen Moscow Mules, anyone?)

The leasing news comes as no surprise, considering the upward trajectory of the surrounding neighborhood. Just a few blocks away, Paces’ Larkin development and Atlanta Dairies are taking shape, while plans for Fuqua’s Madison Yards development are being finalized.

Manny’s should be open by late spring of 2018, officials said.
