Chef pop-ups, DJ performances, craft beer and more are coming to the dynamic indoor-outdoor culinary destination

On Saturday, June 10, Westside Motor Lounge, the indoor-outdoor restaurant, bar, beer garden and live music venue at Echo Street West, will host Punk Foodie Fest vol. 2, a culinary celebration hosted by Punk Foodie with live DJ performances, specialty craft beer and 16 restaurant pop-ups. From noon to 5 p.m., attendees are invited to enjoy over 45 dishes representing a wide range of cuisines from a variety of local Atlanta pop-up chefs.  Proceeds from the event are expected to support charity Flavor Forward’s production of at least 500 fresh, chef-cooked meals for individuals experiencing food insecurity. Tickets are now available for purchase. 

“Punk Foodie Fest Vol. 2 is an incredible way to bring the community together to celebrate the underground Atlanta food scene while also supporting a great cause,” said Kelly Campbell, Partner at STHRN Hospitality Co. and Southern Culinary & Creative, the company behind Westside Motor Lounge. “Westside Motor Lounge and Punk Foodie have similar missions of discovering unique talents in the music and food scenes, and we couldn’t be more excited to partner and spread awareness of some of the best in Atlanta’s culinary scene.” 

Punk Foodie Fest Vol. 2 is an all-ages event. Each ticket includes access to Westside Motor Lounge and the 16 pop-up chef concepts, all DJ performances and one complimentary smoked fruit Berliner Weisse beer or nonalcoholic alternative. The list of attending chefs is available here. Children ages 13 and under are free to attend and furry friends are welcome. Costs for food, beverage and vendor goods will vary. Free parking is available at Westside Motor Lounge or Guardian Works at Echo Street West. 

“We have carefully curated the list of 16 chefs and 45 dishes to help showcase the wonderful ways in which pop-up chefs are redefining the restaurant landscape in Atlanta (a third of Eater’s hottest restaurants were originally pop-ups),” said Sam Flemming, founder Punk Foodie. “These chefs everyday are painting pictures of the new South, not with paint on canvas, but with local and global ingredients served in Styrofoam take-out boxes from borrowed kitchens and 10×10 tents with tabletop fryers all over the city.”

Founded by father and son team Sam and Leo Flemming and powered by Punk Foodie, Flavor Forward is a community giving platform that provides local chefs with the tools and facilities to prepare warm meals for those experiencing food insecurity. Last year, Flavor Forward delivered over 5,000 meals to local organizers Camp Peace, Intown Cares, The Cathedral Towers, Second Helpings and Free99Fridge. 

Punk Foodie is the ‘go-to’ platform for diners to discover unique, local experiences from the Atlanta underground dining scene. The platform hosts a database of over 900 Atlanta area pop-up chefs and manages a calendar of over 200 culinary events per week. At the festival, Punk Foodie will launch the new Punk Foodie app and the official Punk Foodie beer, smoked fruit Berliner Weisse, a collaboration between Round Trip Brewery and Secret Pint BBQ. 

Additionally, Westside Motor Lounge will host Skyway Man on Friday, June 9 and the “Girls Love To BAMBA” Day Party on Sunday, June 11 from 4 to 10 p.m. In partnership with Girls Love Ama + Bamba Tuesdays, Westside Motor Lounge will be transformed into an extravaganza of Amapiano, Gqom, Bacardi, Afrohouse, and more. The musical lineup includes DJ Tag, DJ Kash, Danger VYBZ and Xavier Blk. The day party is an ages 21 and up event, and tickets are now available for purchase.
