CL Critic Kevin C. Madigan Recommends:
A new distillery that combines booze and artistic endeavors is open for business in Chamblee. The venture is producing vodka, gin and whiskey and could soon add an amaro or herbal liqueur, we are told. The newly constructed 15,000-square building includes a modern art gallery featuring local artists, some of whom receive commissions to design the labels that adorn the distiller’s bottles; Xie Caomi, Juliana Lupacchino and Josh Jalbert were the first three to get picked for the task.
DOMA is “an amalgamation of distillery, gallery, event space, covered patio, and cocktail lounge” and “an accessible meeting of both art and spirit,” its promoters say. Kandinsky and Rothko each have parts of the locale named after them. Art works bedeck many walls, and a recent visit showed a standing female model on whose nude torso a couple of artists busily expressed themselves with paint brushes. Founder Seth Watson toldCreative Loafinghe was aiming for a confluence of his two favorite things: art and liquor. He added that the artists - and musicians who perform there - are all locally based. "This project took time to perfect. I want it to truly be seen as a creative space and a work of art (in) itself as well."— KCM
