Atlanta’s Sweet Auburn District Takes A Hit

Harlem Bar, a nightclub in downtown, closed on Friday, May 21.

Located on Edgewood avenue in the Sweet Auburn District, Harlem Bar was sending out an SOS when they reduced its hours of operation back in March of this year. Originally opened seven days a week, the reduction left them struggling for business, open then just on the weekend, three days a week.

Owned and operated by Lorenzo Wyche Restaurants, other concepts by this owner include The Social House, a breakfast place and Rare, a “Soul Tapas” restaurant.

A what now, atlanta? reader first tipped us off in March and recently notified us of Harlem Bar’s closure last Friday. A call to the bar confirms: “this number has temporarily been disconnected. There is no further information at this time.”
