What Place: wine bar & bookshop
Description “Part wine bar, part sophisticated bookshop, part cultural concept, Lucian marries a variety of things in life that are often romanticized—art, culture, wine, prose and food—in Buckhead at the corner of Pharr and Peachtree roads. “
Why Lucian is as striking from the outside as the inside, and I remember first eying the handsome dark exterior about a year ago on a drive home from yoga. Fast forward quite possibly a year, and finally, I had the pleasure of experiencing this little gem nestled next to the Shops at Buckhead.
The wine list is impressive, the staff are as warm and welcoming as they come, and everyone there seemed to look the part like we were all on the same London movie set. Clear glasses, chunky patterned sweaters, bangs and red lips all helped add to the bookish culture.
What sweetened the experience even more is later discovering how cute the couple is behind this much needed Atlanta addition.
“’Seated at the Swans Bar at Maison Assouline surrounded by art and lifestyle books, the couple had an a-ha moment. We truly looked at each other and just knew this is what we’re doing together,’ Barringer says of the idea behind Lucian. ‘It was immediate, and shifted us in a way that we needed and provided that next step.’”– Eater Atlanta
