Pretty Girls Drink Brown Liquor Day Party in Atlanta
Event: Pretty Girls Drink Dark Liquor
Venue: Encore Lounge
This Past Saturday in at Atlanta, Encore Lounge hosted the Pretty Girls Drink Dark Liquor day party. The day party started at 3 pm and ended at 8 p.m. and was free if you RSVP on Eventbrite in advance. Most people started to arrive after 5 p.m. it was pretty much-packed wall to wall. There were a few sections inside but if you were not in a section you did not have much space to dance but the music was lit. DJ Smeezo had the party going with the latest trap, hip-hop, and afrobeat with dancehall music sprinkled in between. The section closest to the bar was probably the most lit section the entire night. They had bottles of Dusse and Henny popping and they were getting lit and dancing to the music. Most of the other sections were just chilling and smoking hookah occasionally a blunt was sparked here and there.
The drink special of the night was the $4 shots of brown liquor (including Jack Daniels but not Jack Honey, Crown, Bulliet, and Maker) you could get a triple shot for $12. Be careful though because a triple shot of the Jack Honey was $36 so again pay attention to the drinks that are part of the special. But the true winner for the night was the $.50 cent wings! The only problem was the wait at the bar. The wait was so long that most people did not even partake in the specials. It seemed that they may have been understaffed there were only two bartenders and they could not take all the orders everyone was trying to get in. The line for the bar was more than a 40 min wait and if you didn’t want to stand in line, the patio had servers running in and out of the lounge delivering food, drinks, and hookah. The Patio was the move if you wanted to get some fresh air or some breathing room. The only downside was that the patio did not have any speakers. You could still hear the music from inside when the patio door opened but when closed it was muffled. The patio wrapped around the lounge and had tables and sections so it was a nice area to chill, smoke, network and maybe even bag that cutie you spotted since you could barely hear the music.
It was my first time at Encore so I am assuming that they did not predict it was going to be as busy as it was on Saturday. It took very long for the servers to get the food and drinks out to the tables in a timely fashion. This may also have to do with the space being so full of people that getting from one end of the room to the next was a challenge. The only servers making real moves were the ones delivering coals to the hookahs because no one is trying to get burn holes on their clean fit or worse, on bare skin. All in all, I had a good time at Encore Lounge during the Pretty Girls Drink Dark Liquor event. I’ll have to check out one of their evening events soon.
