I had the amazing opportunity to attend the Red Phone Booth Media Preview Party this past Thursday night. I had never experienced a prohibition experience before and when I tell you I was blown away beyond words, and in awe of this first-class experience. Beginning with the entry as I dialed the secret phone number into the old school London phone booth to the amazing customer experience I will never forget and will definitely return.
The Red Phone Booth will open to the public on August 20th and Amalfi Pizza will open in early September in the over 12, 000 square foot iconic Dailey’s located at 17 Andrew Young International Drive Boulevard NE in the heart of Downtown Atlanta. This 100-year-old building had been closed for years but a complete renovation has taken place over the last nine months and has a new look thanks to Casie Davis of CDM Interiors, LLC. Amazing job done on the renovations, every detail has been finely tuned. On the ground floor, the cigar lounge Red Phone Booth is housed in the 4,000 square feet area. On the second floor, Amalfi Pizza, a traditional Neapolitan trattoria, occupies the remainder of the building.
This is the first of a multi-location rollout, Red Phone Booth is a prohibition experience featuring an extensive classic craft cocktail and cigar program. Customers will experience the finest attention to detail that provides for exceptional cocktails including 100% fresh squeezed juices such as blood orange, mango, and cranberry, hand chipped double-reverse osmosis ice, garnishes cut to order, a collection of some of the largest liquors available and over a dozen tinctures, bitters and flavoring agents to help breath new depth.
Small plates will include fresh seafood, carpaccio, and beef tenderloin. Neapolitan pizza and house made desserts including a rotating selection of signature desserts courtesy of former Daileys owner and current President of the Georgia Restaurant Association, Karen Bremer are also available.
Inspired by the 1920’s speakeasy theme, the venue features restored original brick floors, have a honey onyx bar, intimate fireplace, custom Italian leather couches, and hand-painted ceiling with back lighting. Also featured on the ground floor is a private “mob-style” kitchen complete with poker and pool tables available to rent for private events.
Finally, in true prohibition style guests enter by securing a secret phone number and dialing it into a restored antique London red phone booth entryway.
This is experience and a place that you will definitely want to be apart of.
