Escobar Lounge aims to be an ‘upscale alternative’ to Atlanta’s club scene in Castleberry Hill.
“We want [Escobar Lounge] to be one of the top spots for the upscale and celebrity crowd in the city,” Giselle Warren, a company spokesperson, told What Now Atlanta (WNA) in a telephone conversation Tuesday.
Escobar is the first restaurant venture for 2 Chainz, according to Warren.
“2 Chainz has been looking to get into the restaurant industry for a while now, and this is an opportunity to do something unique.”
A building permit application was filed with City of Atlanta in August for commercial alterations to the Castleberry Hill space for the the forthcoming restaurant and lounge.
Escobar Lounge is expected to open its doors by November.
