Not to be confused with the bottle-juggling bartender, the mixologist works like a chef: sourcing fresh ingredients, rare liqueurs and forgotten recipes — and crafting cocktails designed more for complexity of taste than for raw potency. At Restaurant Eugene’s tiny bar, GREG BEST produces some of the most sublime concoctions in the city, armed with an old-fashioned seltzer bottle, a near-encyclopedic knowledge of the spirit world and shelves stocked with a dizzying array of rye whiskeys, Dutch genevers and Czech herbal bitters. Perfectionist Best makes his own simple syrup, tonic water and even a lavender infusion that takes two weeks to steep. He has recently partnered with the folks who own Eugene to open a “public house” across the breezeway called Holeman & Finch. The restaurant is scheduled to open any day, with Best behind the bar. Be sure to save us a stool. less...

Opened by local restaurateur/self-proclaimed Anglophile GOVANTEZ LOWNDES, Technology Square-situated bistro the Globe celebrates the fresh-from-the-garden multidimensional cuisine of chef Joshua Perkins in a space-age, unfussy environment. And the clarity extends to the cocktails. The space overlays sleek textures and organic flavors, and the mixology of Lowndes follows suit with concoctions inspired from travels in London and Sydney. Served from behind a 30-foot zinc bar, the Globe’s bracing cocktails contain juicy ingredients like guava, passion fruit, mango, and rhubarb puree and combine them with worldly libations, including molasses rum, Pimms and Campari. The impact is mod yet classic, discreet yet zesty.
The Globe, 75 Fifth St. 404-541-1487. www.globeatlanta.com.
