Joel At Trader Vic's
You're probably expecting us to pick some hot, tattooed young thing at the Local, Echo Lounge, Vinyl or some other hot spot. But we've got to give a contrarian's nod to JOEL AT TRADER VIC'S in the downtown Hilton. His degree in philosophy, keen baseball mind, dry wit and unflappable demeanor makemore...
You're probably expecting us to pick some hot, tattooed young thing at the Local, Echo Lounge, Vinyl or some other hot spot. But we've got to give a contrarian's nod to JOEL AT TRADER VIC'S in the downtown Hilton. His degree in philosophy, keen baseball mind, dry wit and unflappable demeanor make him one of the city's more engrossing mixologists to engage in a barstool debate. He slings a mean Zombie - just ask the devotees who sing his praises on tiki-bar message boards. (We're not making this up.) And somehow, he makes that Hawaiian-shirt uniform "work".

Eddie Johnson
The decor and the clientele are so gosh-darned beautiful at Halo, it can be unnerving. So thank God for bartender Eddie Johnson. Don't get us wrong - he's cute as hell and all. But he's also welcoming and considerate, both atypical traits among the posh and hip. Plus, only the best servers remember whatmore...
The decor and the clientele are so gosh-darned beautiful at Halo, it can be unnerving. So thank God for bartender Eddie Johnson. Don't get us wrong - he's cute as hell and all. But he's also welcoming and considerate, both atypical traits among the posh and hip. Plus, only the best servers remember what you're drinking "and" make sure you have a fresh one the very moment you start looking around for the bartender. Eddie handles both with ease and a smile.

Hammy
Star Community Bar, 437 Moreland Ave. 404-681-9018 http://www.cloun.com/starhome.html He looks like he might need a step stool to reach the bar, but Hammy's one of the best in the business.

Star Community Bar, 437 Moreland Ave. 404-681-9018 http://www.cloun.com/starhome.html He looks like he might need a step stool to reach the bar, but Hammy's one of the best in the business. The Star Bar's drink mixer remembers faces and doesn't have to ask what you're drinking on your return visit. Sometimes his hat's pulled down so far on his head, you can barely see his eyes, but make no mistake, he sees you and will keep the beer flowing, even when the bar's packed and you're sweating like a redneck at a rodeo. less...

Dawn Dean and Jeff Rader
Come to the cabaret, old chum — the Dawn and Jeff Friday night sing-a-long boozefest cabaret, that is. These roommates/workmates, (not a couple) sling the drinks fast and strong while keeping the crowd entertained with songs and jokes in a distinct, but not exclusive, Midtown style. Oh yeah, the custom-brewedmore...
Come to the cabaret, old chum — the Dawn and Jeff Friday night sing-a-long boozefest cabaret, that is. These roommates/workmates, (not a couple) sling the drinks fast and strong while keeping the crowd entertained with songs and jokes in a distinct, but not exclusive, Midtown style. Oh yeah, the custom-brewed lagers, usually three choices on tap with a seasonal one or two thrown in, kick ass, too. less...

Gino Halliday, Fay-Lynn Owen and Anna Bender
If neither the more-piercings-than-thou-Midtown-type bartender nor the Coyote-stunning-bottle-flippin'-Buckhead-type holds any appeal for you, the Yacht's tag-team of Gino, Fay-Lynn and Anna are probably just who you're looking for.

The trio pour 'em strong, keep 'em comin', remember what yer drinkin' and tell a damn good story when the mood strikes. No nonsense drinkers only. less...
