Guests will Experience the Thrills of Ski Resort Vibes, Seasonal Cocktails, and Mountaintop Fare on the Rooftop Starting Nov. 8

Atlanta doesn’t see much snow, but HOBNOB Neighborhood Tavern will soon usher in ski chalet vibes upstairs at its Halcyon location. Starting Wednesday, Nov. 8, the Ski Chalet Pop-Up Bar will immerse guests in a winter ski resort atmosphere, serving seasonal cocktails and mountaintop fare all winter long.

HOBNOB is recreating one of the most enjoyable parts of a ski vacation: the après ski experience, where guests wind down after a day on the slopes with cocktails and comforting snacks. At HOBNOB Halcyon, guests probably did not have a hard day of skiing, but they can escape to the comfort of HOBNOB’s Ski Chalet with a satisfying beverage, a cozy atmosphere with a roaring fire and some of the best après ski fare east of the Rockies. 

HOBNOB’s Ski Chalet drinks will come with a side of seasonal comfort, perfect for whatever terrain guests have covered that day. Specialty cocktails include classics like peppermint mocha martinis, RumChata hot cocoas, and Bulleit bourbon hot toddies. Guests can linger over their cozy cocktails and nibble at seasonal mountaintop fare that includes tableside campfire s’mores and homemade classic poutine.

Live entertainment will complement the snowy space every Friday and Saturday. The Ski Chalet Pop-Up Bar will be located at HOBNOB Halcyon’s High-Up Bar on the second floor. All the best features of the winter season will be alive and well and celebrated in a warm, welcoming atmosphere.  

HOBNOB Halcyon is open for lunch and dinner and weekend brunch and offers a late-night bar and live music on the weekends. Kitchen hours are Monday-Thursday 11 a.m.-10 p.m., Friday 11 a.m.-10:30 p.m., Saturday 10:30 a.m.-10:30 p.m. and Sunday 10:30 a.m.-10 p.m. Check HOBNOB’s website for more special events.

The revered group have carved out their place in history with their iconic Southern rap anthems “Knuck If You Buck” and “Rock Yo Hips.” The show will be hosted by Jessie Woo and Paige Shari, while Jay Shale, the Atlanta DJ who spins for the WNBA’s Atlanta Dream and Overtime Elite, will serve as house DJ for the battle.

Get to know the crews of Red Bull Culture Clash Atlanta

  • Rum Punch Brunch – Coined as Atlanta’s most celebrated brunch, RPB started it all back in 2016, and has become a must-attend event for those looking for exotic eats, big beats, the best rum punch, and the coolest vibe. The crew will be joined onstage by Jamaican dancehall singer and producer Serani and featured DJs Tony MatterhornandWilly Chin. 
  • Mashup Sessions – The open-format experience for Music Lovers, where music is remixed, flipped, and reconstructed. Delivering music that feeds the soul, Mashup Sessions is all about good drinks, good people, and better vibes. The crew will be joined onstage by local Atlanta rap starYoung Nudy and DJs UnruelyandThe Canterbury Tales.
  • Bamba Tuesdays – One of the nation’s premier Amapiano events, as well as an Atlanta cultural institution, Bamba Tuesdays seamlessly blends Amapiano, Afro House, Gqom, Afro Tech, and Afro Beat. The crew will be joined onstage by singer and songwriterAfro B, known for his hit single, Drogba, plus DJs KashDangerVybzand Polish.
  • Perreo404 – An all-inclusive community uplifting the Latin culture through nostalgia and sounds, featuring Reggaeton, Perreo, Latin House, and more. Que viva el perreo! The crew will be joined onstage by Bad Bunny collaborator, DJ, and producerDJ Luian, plus DJ EUandNino Augustine.

Red Bull Culture Clash previously came to Atlanta in 2017 and 2018 and, perhaps boding well for Rum Punch Brunch, Dancehall crews won both prior years. Crew Unruly with DJs ZJ Liquid, Chromatic, Jazzy T, and Jabba won in 2017, while Jamaica reggae and dancehall artist Kranium and crew Frequent Fliers took the title in 2018. After a four-year hiatus, Red Bull Culture Clash made a triumphant return to the U.S. in 2022, selling out venues in NYC and LA. 

“Super excited to be a part of Red Bull Culture Clash this year because I’ve been a team member a few years back with Mike WiLL (Made-It) and the Eardrummers. Now it’s time to lead the charge for my own team,” said DJ Kash of Bamba Tuesdays. “Red Bull Culture Clash is like a legit gladiator battle for DJs, producers, and whatever you do creatively in the music. For me, this is super important because this lets you know where you stand as far as how to rock a crowd.”

The two prior Red Bull Culture Clashes in Atlanta also saw guest appearances from Ludacris, Mavado, Rae Sremmurd, Rico Nasty, and Waka Flocka Flame, among others.

“Red Bull Culture Clash is an important event in Atlanta because it highlights all the people that are doing movements in the city of Atlanta – that are really putting on for the culture of the city and showcasing all the vibes and sounds of our cultures,” said DJ EU, who won Red Bull 3Style in Atlanta in 2013. “Red Bull Culture Clash takes me back to my Red Bull 3Style battling days, but this time it’s not one person – it’s the crew and I could not be happier to be repping the Latinos in Atlanta with my Perreo404 crew.”

Distillery of Modern Art, Sunday, November 11 at 1pm

Attention art enthusiasts and philanthropists! 

We are thrilled to announce an extraordinary art show that combines creativity, community, and a noble cause. Join us for an unforgettable evening filled with stunning artwork, live painting, delectable food, and a mission to find a kidney donor. 

This art show is a celebration of talent featuring over 20 incredible artists from various backgrounds and styles. From mesmerizing paintings to breathtaking photography, this event promises to ignite your imagination and leave you inspired. 

Adding to the excitement, we have invited two talented live painters who will create masterpieces right before your eyes. Witness their artistic process unfold in real-time, as they transform blank canvases into stunning works of art. 

But, this event is not just about art; it’s about making a difference in someone’s live. We are working to raise awareness for an individual, Vy Tran, as he is in his late stages of kidney failure and is in desperate need of a hero donor. 

About Vy Tran: 

Just before the pandemic hit, I was diagnosed with end stage renal disease, essentially my kidneys stopped working. I’ve been on dialysis for the past 3 years or so and am currently on the transplant list (which can take years to find a donor). It’s been a very rough road till this point and a lot of it has to do with the physical and mental changes that come with all of this. But as of right now, I am in a good place and I am pushing forward as best I can. 

On the bright side, my transplant surgeon says I’m a good candidate for a donor kidney but no amount of surgery will change my personality. 

In addition to the mission, we are also giving back to the community and to the artists. As the holidays are closely approaching, booth space was provided free of charge to the artists allowing them to showcase their work with no overhead. As a gift to the community, food will be provided to attendees at no charge by Ruchi Bangladeshi during the duration of the show (while supplies last-food arrives at ~2:30pm) .
