One of the hottest spots in Old Fourth Ward/Inman Park on weekend evenings. A lot of groups come here before they go out on the weekends to start their night. Hop City has an extensive beer selection - they have a big list of both local beers (they mark them so you know), as well as beers from around the world. Quick, efficient staff that keeps long lines moving so you never have to wait too long, even when it's packed. If you grab a beer from Hop City, you're able to walk around Krog Street Market with it if you're waiting for a table at a restaurant.
my entire staff bought me a gift certificate to this place. when i tried to use the certificate for a 6 pack; they denied it. they stated that i had to use the whole amount in a single visit. this is NOT a good way to do business people ! this alienates me as a new customer. this alienates my staff members as customers as well as our friends and business contacts. In this day and age of social media, make your business more sensible and allow the use of gift certificates as any other business would...as cash.
Green's on Ponce is a great liquor store. Not only do they have a wonderful beer selection (though their wine choices are a bit lacking) they also have most liquors you could want, mixers, cigarettes, and other last-minute drinking needs. The best part about Greens is the crowd. This place is truly democratic--everybody likes to drink! So you see businessmen and soccer moms in line with college kids and welfare moms. Plus they play the tv so you have something to do while waiting in line. A great store!
