Kicks-off Wednesday, March 16!

In celebration of National Unplugged Day on March 4, Lingering shade, Atlanta’s go-to cocktail bar located on the beltline, is pleased to introduce Unplugged Wednesdays. Kicking off on March 16th, Unplugged Wednesdays present an opportunity for guests to disconnect from technology, focusing on the present moment, along with spending quality time with friends and loved ones.

“Now more than ever, it’s incredibly important to prioritize wellness and authentic connections with colleagues, friends and family,” said Spencer Patton, General Manager of Lingering Shade. “While the concept seems foreign in today’s time, I believe that stepping away from cell phones, even for a short amount of time, will be refreshing and beneficial to our guests.”

Unplugged Wednesdays will take place every third Wednesday of the month. Upon entering Lingering Shade, guests will check in and hand their cell phones over to staff, who will store them safely until departure. Each week during Unplugged Wednesdays, Lingering Shade will debut an off-the-menu specialty cocktail for $9, starting with the Kir Royale on March 16th. Perfect for celebrating great company and conversation, the Kir Royale is a champagne-based cocktail with crème de cassis. In addition to specialty cocktails and an extensive selection of beer, wine and liquors, bar-goers can enjoy a variety of delectable shareable items such as Pimento Cheese Crab Dip, Caramelized Vidalia Onion Dip or Pigs in A Blanket. Lastly, pups will not be left out on Unplugged Wednesdays, and can enjoy the homemade Lingering Shade Dog Biscuit. Lingering Shade Social Club is the most enchanting place on the Beltline for small snacks, superior cocktails, local brews and an impressive wine list.

Lingering Shade celebrated four years of serving up unforgettable patio cocktails in February of this year. This must-visit destination is located on Irwin Street, near Krog Street Market and overlooks Atlanta BeltLine’s Eastside Trail.

Lingering Shade does not accept reservations, and is first come, first served. Parties of 20 or more require an event reservation and deposit. For more information, please visit or call email:
