4. The Atomic Bar & Lounge – Birmingham, Alabama
Whatever pretension that’s left in the cocktail world gets blown to smithereens at the Atomic, a downtown bar that feels like walking into a 1950s house party thrown by your weirdest friend. For example, the bar has its own “costume menu,” a list of full-body costumes that guests can wear while they drink, and each cocktail on the menu is named after one of the joint’s regulars, like the James Sears—a rye drink described as “aggressive, dark, and rich.”
GET INKED: Atomic’s signature drink is the Sex Panther, a bourbon and rum cocktail that comes with a temporary panther tattoo for you to sport throughout the night.
