Sometimes, all you want is a really good mojito. Okay, I want that everyday. If I had a million dollars, I'd spend it all on a personal mixologist who would greet me every afternoon with a perfectly made strawberry mojito. While I continue to search for that magical scratch card, I'll make do at Whiskey Blue, located in the W Hotel Buckhead.
I've never liked Buckhead. With places like Buckhead Saloon and Moondogs, it's always felt a bit too prep or retired fratboy or incredibly yuppie for me. I always assume that the music will be too similar to Yacht Rock - easy listening for the over 40s doesn't round out my ideal night out. But my skepticism was completely ill founded at Whiskey Blue, where the DJ spun a nice mix of club hits with indie dance songs. Round that out with the best strawberry mojito I've ever had and a fantastic outdoor deck with great views of Buckhead, it was an almost perfect night. Now, if only they could bar the creepsters from crawling over to our table...
This is my go-to dress when I go anywhere at night. With a jacket, it's demure enough for dinner. When the festivities begin, shed the outerwear and show off the scoop back. Give me exposed backs over cleavage any day.
