The Barrelhouse is opening in Old Fourth Ward Monday

Guests can stop by Saturday for a sneak peek


A bar formerly located in Midtown is set to make its debut in Old Fourth Ward next week.

The Barrelhouse, which was located at 22 5th St. NW at Tech Square for seven years, is opening Monday in a space previously occupied by Cast Iron, which closed earlier this year.

The 2,500 square-foot space will seat 104 guests total, with 68 seats in the dining room, 12 bar seats and an additional 24 seats on the patio, and allows the business to expand its kitchen and menu. 

“We have added exciting upgrades to the existing interior with a large focus on the spacious patio space,” said owner James Brooks in a press release.

The Barrelhouse’s refreshed menu will include the Barrelhouse Burger, topped with bacon jam, a fried egg, onion rings, cheese and a roasted garlic mayo; a New Orleans muffaletta topped with olive salad; and a beer-braised short rib sandwich.

On the beverage side, look for classic cocktails, 12 rotating local beers on draft and an extensive craft Bourbon list. The bar also features a custom Barrelhouse punch bowl that serves four guests.

The Barrelhouse will be open for lunch, dinner and late night from 11 a.m.-2a.m. with brunch on Saturday and Sunday. 

The restaurant will feature a preview from 6 p.m.-close Saturday in conjunction with the Old Fourth Ward Fall Fest and Atlanta Beltline Lantern Parade featuring food, drink and games shown on several televisions.

How to clean annoying messes on your kitchen appliances and tools

My favorite kitchen cleaning strategy: Use the dishwasher. Alas, not everything can go in the dishwasher, and these days, mine is so chock-full of regular dishes and toddler accoutrements that fitting anything larger than a plate in is bordering on impossible. Here are some of my favorite strategies for getting rid of messes, including on (and in)...

Make your bottles last longer: Buy good wine

One of the biggest myths about wine is that it starts to fall apart the instant we open the bottle. Sure, a really old wine may gasp and die as soon as it touches air, but how often are we opening one of those? The maxim that oxygen is the enemy of wine, or that wine really wants to turn to vinegar, is irrelevant to us in our daily consumption of wine...

Move over, beef: Eggs are potatoes’ true love

Goodness doesn’t get much simpler than eggs and potatoes. The combination works for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I think the contrasting textures explain a lot of the combo’s appeal. Also, both ingredients exhibit a fantastic affinity for picking up other flavors — butter, oil, bacon, hot sauce, black pepper. For just about any hash...

Kitchen Curious: Tortillas are secret weapon for simple, savory pie

When I developed a recipe called Veggie Tortilla Pie a decade ago, I thought I was the smartest home cook on the block. At the time, my husband would have lunch weekly with work buddies at a Mexican restaurant. He always ordered the tortilla soup, but never ate the accompanying flour tortillas. He’d wrap them up and bring them home. Finding clever...

We love a good banana pudding; this one’s even better than we remember

I will always have a soft spot in my heart for pudding, in large part because it brings me right back to my grandma’s house, where as a child I stood on a step stool so I could reach the pot and help stir, stir, stir as the sweet scent of the thickening mixture wafted upward. Looking back, I see how that aromatherapy, along with the anticipation...
