Our Bar ATL: Thank You To Our Pop-Up Chefs

Updated: Mar 7, 2022

Since April 2020, we've partnered with 84 chefs and home cooks to host 314 kitchen pop-ups here at Our Bar ATL.

That's an incredible feeling.

What started as a panicked response to the pandemic gradually turned into 16 months of eating and getting happy from food cooked by people with some seriously amazing culinary skills. Moreover, we had the opportunity and space to introduce their cuisines and stories to our neighborhood, as we saw them grow, evolve, and overcome all the difficulties of the past year and a half.

From these 84 chefs, we learned how nervous and excited they were when they first took a chance in the hopes that strangers may like their food. We saw all the hard work, preparations, early mornings and late nights that backed each and every plate they sold. Most importantly, we felt just how delicious food can be when it's cooked from the heart and with a passion that no pandemic can crush.

As we shift gears this month to long-term kitchen residencies, we would like to thank our 84 chefs for being a part of the journey - what a wild ride it's been. At the same time, we're excited to introduce Chef Elliott Farmer who'll be bringing his heavenly Jerk Chicken, Fried Catfish, Cheesy Seafood Bread, and more to his fans every Wednesday (2PM - 2:30AM). In addition, our favorite pizza pop-up, Dolo's Pizza Co., will be slinging their mouthwatering pies every weekend: Friday - Saturday (2PM-7PM) and Sunday all-day (2PM-12AM).
