The Harp, an American eatery with a 40-tap wall of self-service beer, wine, and Champagne that can be purchased in one-ounce increments using an RFID-enabled bracelet, is really close to opening in Grant Park.

Co-Owners and siblings Jarrett Gray and Joy Gray Prince have set an August debut for The Harp but could open the restaurant’s doors as early as late-July, Gray in a telephone interview Tuesday told What Now Atlanta (WNA).

An exact opening date will be determined as “final touches” to the space are finalized.

The Harp was originally slated to open late-2018.

“Transforming the old Harp Transmission building has been a labor of love appreciated by the community,” Gray said.

“We’re at the finish line and we’re ready to rock and roll.”

The former 3,000-square-foot automotive space, at 350 Memorial Drive, will have seating for nearly 100 inside and an additional 100 on its patio, complete with “clubhouse games” like giant Connect 4 and darts.

On the menu will be American cuisine with “a twist” for lunch and dinner with a brunch buffet on the weekends, including a build-your-own Mimosas and Bloody Mary bar.

Gray and Prince on the weekends will host various pop-ups (retail) and neighborhood activations (like yoga) with a portion of proceeds benefiting local charities.

If you’re planning on patronizing The Harp, there’s an “introductory offer” available ahead of the restaurant’s opening that could save you some cash.

Gift cards are available for purchase on the restaurant’s website where if you spend $25 you get $40, spend $50, get $100.)
