New supper club brings entertainment and hint of mystery

Burn Social Club

A new metro Atlanta entertainment establishment borrows its style from yesteryear when it was illegal to partake in spirits such as gin and whiskey.

Back during prohibition days, speakeasies sprang up in numerous places requiring potential patrons to know where to find these mysterious venues—some with no signage—and how to enter with a specific knock or password.

The Burn Social Club is tucked away inside the Czar Ice Bar in Buckhead. The black door to the club bears only the establishment’s burn flame logo but all one has to do is ask and the club’s maître d is pleased to show visitors the way.

Inside it’s an intimate setting with tables of two and more arranged on two levels giving everyone a view of the club, stage and dance floor. Some seating is positioned in a den-like setting with a faux fireplace, dark leather sofas and cocktail tables and low lighting.

Similar to the supper clubs that were popular in the 1920s and 1930s, the Burn Social Club puts as much emphasis on dining and imbibing as it does on entertainment. The food menu is small but the quality is high. Patrons can choose from flatbreads, salads, sushi and an incredible beef tenderloin with potatoes and a dipping sauce as well as several desserts. And there are pages and pages of drinks from which to choose. Prices range from $8 to $24.

Entertainment rotates among various genres including a salsa night (with complimentary lessons) on Wednesdays and the extremely energetic and talented Cinnamon Groove band on Fridays and Saturdays. Cinnamon Grove features two female singers whose dance moves are only outshone by their vocal talents, delivering contemporary pop songs as well as R&B classics and vintage rock. On Thursday evenings, Atlanta’s own version of the Rat Pack features three talented singers filling the shoes of the original Rat Pack crooners Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. One of the Atlanta singers is Patrick Sallarulo, who by day is a chiropractor in Tucker, but after dark dons a tux and belts out iconic songs. A $10 cover charge applies some nights and after 10 p.m. However, there’s no cover charge for diners.

Burn Social Club, www.burnsocialclub.com, is located at 56 E. Andrews Dr., Atlanta.
