Brooklyn Cantina has stood empty for months since the restaurant temporarily closed its doors in March and announced its permanent shutter at the end of June. That’s going to change by the fall. While the owners of Peach Pit Bar and Grill were looking at the site for a possible new location, the 4,069-square-foot building will actually house Dancing Skulls, the owner of the incoming restaurant confirms.

Part bar, part restaurant, and part venue, Dancing Skulls’ owner, who asked to stay anonymous for privacy reasons, said that their focus is primarily on the venue element, closely followed by the craft cocktail bar.

“We’ll have music and comedy shows. We are working on charity events,” the owner said.  “We’re hoping to be one of the best liquor selections in town. We’ll probably have 50 bourbons, 20 tequilas, 20 vodkas, a really lavish bar.”

They will also be serving a menu with classic American bar food and Mediterranean and Indian fusion in the vein of seafood kebabs.

B’s Hospitality, LLC, which will operate Dancing Skulls, just signed the lease on this space at the end of last week. “We don’t even have a key,” the owner said. 

With a signed lease, the owners have started renovating the space, knocking out some of the walls. 9945 Jonesbridge Road’s revamped interior will be Art Deco-influenced, with several murals on the wall. 

“Atlanta needs something that is happening, with a little atmosphere, a little different,” the owner said. “[Dancing Skulls] is something I’ve always dreamed about. I wanted to have my own music venue bar lounge.”

B’s Hospitality hopes to have Dancing Skulls in operation by Halloween on Saturday, October 31.
