Six Feet Under’s main sell is its location. The tavern is a landmark in the celebrated Grant Park district just off Memorial Drive. Housed in a reclaimed Atlanta manufacturing company called the Southern Elevator Company; remnants of its former tenant are evident in the red brick design of the building and interior décor with exposed piping and large factory windows. The walls are lined with antique beer signs which give the space a relaxed feel and ambiance. Folks who like a bit of history with their grub may like the fact that the restaurant is directly across from Atlanta’s historic Oakland cemetery; the final resting place to golfing great Bobby Jones and Gone with the Wind’s author, Margaret Mitchell. It’s ironic and a bit funny that a bar called Six Feet Under serves food and drink to patrons overlooking a cemetery. Customers can choose to sit downstairs in the main restaurant or head upstairs to a rooftop bar and patio with a delightful view of Atlanta’s skyline.
“But I will place this carefully fed pig Within the crackling oven; and, I pray, What nicer dish can e’er be given to man.” Aeschylus, ancient Greek poet
