The owners of Ms. Icey’s Kitchen and Bar in Decatur and Negril Village Atlanta in Midtown have signed a long-term, $10,000 a month lease for a new restaurant, bar and lounge concept in the heart of Buckhead tentatively called APT 4B.

The space, which belonged to 1Kept Restaurant and Bar until recently, is in impeccable condition for the spirited, multi-functional, Caribbean-inflected dining experiences that owners Glenn Wilson and Sim Walker have become known for.

Approximately 4,800 square feet on the main level holds the dining room, bar, lounge, outdoor seating, prep-kitchen and open exhibition kitchen areas such as a wood-fired oven.

All leasing agreements involving 2293 Peachtree Road NE, including “no key money required” and “no charge to use furniture, fixtures, and equipment” provisions, were guided to execution by Steve Josovitz of The Shumacher Group, Inc., a real estate leasing firm.

Details on a grand opening timeline and what you can expect on the menu are being confirmed, but here are a few looks at the “furniture, fixtures and equipment,” that the owners acquired from 1Kept:

  1. This will last maybe a year? I don’t know why places like Justin’s, Frank Ski’s, Dennis Schroeder’s “lounge”, The Hive and a host of other places think renting space in South Buckhead is somehow going to work from a business perspective (given that 80% of these places are now closed).
    Wouldn’t it make sense to appeal to the families living in Peachtree Hills, Brookwood Hills and Garden Hills as opposed to yet another cheesy “lounge” where the vast majority of your customers are driving in from other areas around the city to feel important for a cheap brunch?

    1. Well Panera Bread closed too, so your point is what exact? Was that also not appealing to “families of South Buckhead”?
