Bazati Plans August Opening in Atlanta's Common Ground Development
Bazati is set to open later this month inside the Common Ground development along the Atlanta BeltLine’s Eastside Trail. The 7,000-square-foot space is housed inside a 1940s industrial warehouse and will serve as a destination for lounging, sipping, shopping, reading and dining. It will feature a chic eatery, The Brasserie, evoking 1920s Paris, as well as eight specialty retail shops.
With both indoor and outdoor seating, The Brasserie will be a place where guests can enjoy coffee and a pastry for breakfast, a drink at one of two bars, or classic brasserie fare for lunch and dinner. The menu will feature authentic plates such as steak frites, quiche Lorraine, duck confit and tarte Tatin. To drink, there will be a selection of well-curated, mostly French wines and a cocktail program rooted in Paris’ années folles era (think French 75s and Boulevardiers). Chef Remi Granger, formerly of Bread & Butterfly, will helm the kitchen.
“We’re so pleased to be opening at such an exciting time for the BeltLine,” says partner/owner Scott Wilkins. “We’re bringing a truly authentic French experience to Atlanta with The Brasserie, and Bazati will offer unique gifts and collectibles that simply can’t be found elsewhere, including online.”
With soaring, 23-foot ceilings and handsome tones of navy, tan and gray, The Brasserie will be sophisticated and relaxed, an all-day place. Custom imported furniture from Europe and Latin America will include Parisian-style cafe tables and a comfortable lounge area. Guests entering from the BeltLine will be greeted by The Brasserie’s 3,000-square-foot patio and garden with seating for dining and drinking al fresco.
Inside Bazati, the open space will offer the feeling of a chic hotel lobby with soft seating throughout, allowing visitors to lounge and imbibe as an extension of The Brasserie. Specialty shops will be a source for stylish, travel-minded items to take home or gift, many of which are uniquely available in Georgia at Bazati. Offerings will include flowers from The Fleur Shop, books from TASCHEN, artisanal Yucatecan textiles from Taller Maya, leather goods from Blumarino, handcrafted sunglasses from Bamboo Life and more. Operated and owned by hospitality group The Diligence Company, Bazati is the culmination of many years of planning and extensive research of products.
