If you live in Atlanta, chances are you’ve visited Buckhead’s Andrews Entertainment District at least once. The complex is home to several bars, restaurants, and other nightlife spots, including the newly-opened Burn Social Club. Burn Social Club has dubbed itself “a modern day supper club,” serving craft cocktails and smaller bites like sushi and flat bread pizzas.
With famed, cocktail-slinger Tom McGuire behind the bar, the cocktail menu at Burn Social Club is pretty major. From an Old Fashioned that’s served over smoked ice cubes to a Rum Punch that’s made using clove-vanilla syrup, the cocktail selection at Burn Social Club is not to be played with.
During my visit to Burn, I had the opportunity to sample the “Mary Pickford” and the “Buckhead Bramble.” Sadly, the “Buckhead Bramble,” which was made using vodka, sparkling lime, wine, and Creme de Mure, was on the underwhelming side. It was much sweeter than I thought it would be, and wasn’t very memorable overall. The “Mary Pickford” on the other hand was my kind of drink. Although it boasted only a handful of ingredients, the flavors meshed well together and helped in creating a subtly sweet cocktail banger.
I had a few favorites from the food menu at Burn Social Club. First up was the BBQ Chicken Flat Bread Pizza. I’ll merely describe the pizza as being “off the chain” (that’s a good thing, by the way). Their carrot cake was amazing. I’m not even that big of a carrot cake fan, but I would definitely order that piece of dessert-y goodness again. I wasn’t a fan of the oysters. I’ve had tastier at a more wallet-friendly cost. (A half a dozen West Coast oysters at Burn were $15) Presentation also left a lot to be desired.

Oh! Almost forgot about the entertainment! There was a house band performing the majority of the time we were there. Very talented, but their choice of songs left a lot to be desired. We’re talking Taylor Swift records, an even more upbeat version of “Hey Ya,” and other pop-heavy tunes. Damn you, Buckhead! What I did find pretty cool was The Atlanta Rat Pack, a trio of gentlemen belting out tunes from the likes of Frank Sinatra, and engaging in entertaining dialogue with one another and the audience.
You can find Burn Social Club at 56 East Andrews Drive in Atlanta, Georgia.
