ⓘ Manuels Tavern
Manuels Tavern is a historic tavern in the Poncey–Highland district of Atlanta, Georgia. Established by Manuel Maloof in 1956, the location is notable as a meeting place for influential people in the Democratic Party. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2020.
Manuels Tavern was established in 1956 by Manuel Maloof. The building itself is a commercial building from around 1922. To encourage discussions between patrons, Maloof banned live music and jukeboxes in the establishment.
The bar is notable as a venue and meeting place for members of the Democratic Party. In 1970, Jimmy Carter announced his gubernatorial campaign in the bar. In 2015, President Barack Obama visited the bar during a visit to Atlanta, playing a game of darts at the location. Maloof himself was politically active, being elected to the DeKalb County Board of commissioners in 1974.
In the 1980s, two additional locations were opened on Memorial Drive and near Norcross, Georgia, though both locations closed within a short time. In 1984, the tavern hosted a stage production of As You Like It, leading to what would eventually become Shakespeare Tavern, a prominent playhouse and acting group in Atlanta. In 2015, Brian Maloof, son of Manuel Maloof, sold the bar to developers. The bar closed in December of that year for extensive renovations, with the bar reopening in July the next year. In 2017, plans were unveiled by Manuels grandson for a spin-off eatery in Grant Park, called Mannys Grant Park Pub. On May 29, 2020, the bar was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
