Long-Awaited Bar on Oglethorpe Is Open

Since Hendershot’s on Oglethorpe near the Loop closed, there’s been one rumor or another about what might be going into that building, but now Oglethorpe Garage is open there.

Part motorcycle garage, part neighborhood bar, it also serves some snacks and pre-made crepes supplied by Holy Crepe. Oglethorpe Garage is open from 3 p.m. to midnight Monday through Thrusday and 3 p.m.–2 a.m. Friday and Saturday, with canned and draft beer (about a dozen of the latter), hard seltzer, nitro coffee, Figment kombucha, a small seection of specialty cocktails and wine by the glass, plus classics like Chex Mix, cheese balls and Slim Jims.

Holy Crepe started selling “Grab’N’Joy” crepes last year wholesale to Jittery Joe’s (various locations, including many on UGA’s campus), Hendershot’s and now Oglethorpe Garage. Flavors include goat cheese, pesto and honey; guacamole, crispy onion and vegan bacon; jalapeno, artichoke, spinach and Vidalia onion sauce; and Nutella and banana.
