Whether shaken or stirred, here are the top five places in Atlanta to find the best martinis.
1 South City Kitchen
South City Kitchen has an impressive cocktail menu of creative and Southern-inspired drinks to complement the menu. Our favorite martini in the mix: The South City Cosmo made with Charbay Pomegranate vodka, Pama liqueur and lemon.
1144 Crescent Ave NE Atlanta, GA 30309
2 Mid City Cafe
This unassuming cafe located in the heart of midtown has an extensive Martini menu and some of the best varieties around. The must try: The Espresso Martini made with Lavazza Espresso, Grey Goose, Vanilla, Kahula, White Creme de Cacao and garnished with espresso beans. A couple of these and you will be bouncing off the walls.

3 Highland Tap
This dimly lit local hideaway is one of Atlanta's secret gems, especially when it comes to the martini. In this speakeasy-style bar, you not only get a cold and crisp martini but the leftovers, which go into a small glass carafe on ice...so you can refill at your leisure.

This contemporary seafood tavern serves delicious Mediterranean fare and has some of the best martinis around.
