In 1989, NightCap Food & Spirits opened Highland Tap, an underground hideaway, on the soon-to-become-fashionable corner of Virginia & North Highland avenues. Nestled between what was then Tim’s Ice Cream and Chao – now Winter Wren & Fontaine’s Oyster House, respectively – Highland Tap (https://www.facebook.com/highlandtap) quickly became a neighborhood favorite known for hickory wood grilled steaks and burgers, serious martinis and a wide array of draft beer.
Fast forward 25 years: Highland Tap still delivers the same value and quality VaHi has come to expect. Steaks are hand cut, burgers are ground in house and hand-pattied, and martinis are made to perfection. Service is dependably good and the bartenders mix up cocktails just the way you like them.
On August 11th, Highland Tap will close its cellar doors and begin a week long renovation to include a new draft system with 22 tap handles, new paint, new carpet, patio improvements, stone wall restoration and an updated menu.
To celebrate their re-opening, Highland Tap is hosting a Fire Station #19 dine out benefit on Wednesday, August 20. Highland Tap will donate 20% of total August 20 sales to Atlanta’s Oldest Fire Station (http://www.vhfirecompany.com) to commemorate its shared history with this historic landmark and the Virginia Highland community.
We hope to see you in late August at the brand new Highland Tap!
