The Ivy Buckhead is a renowned sports bar & restaurant that brings Atlanta a sophisticated yet casual and energetic experience for Brunch, Dinner and Nightlife. Located in a converted mansion in the heart of Buckhead, The Ivy is both a local favorite as well as a staple for visitors to Atlanta. Owned and operated by alumni of the University of Georgia, we bring the heart of Athens to our “College GameDay Experience” and work to provide a true “southern hospitality” touch to our guests’ experiences. Come cheer on your favorite teams on our 28 flat screens & Buckhead’s largest outdoor 300 inch TV.
Our owners, two brothers, grew up BBQing almost weekly on their family farm and developed a passion for it early on in life. They always knew they wanted to open a restaurant that would allow them to share their passion with guests & create an experience that was unrivaled in Atlanta. The curation of SmokeShow’s menu was truly a family affair.
We offer one of the best bar environments in town, with an amply spaced two-tiered outdoor patio complete with its own gazebo bar, classically designed interiors with recent modern renovations, vintage wallpaper and our centerpiece: an absolutely massive, marble topped wraparound main bar with a cathedral style ceiling and original painting.
Our commitment to our guest’s experience started with the purchase of our 500 gallon custom built smoker. Hand-built by
Mill Scale Metal Works (outside of Austin,TX – a household name in the world of BBQ), she sits on our patio for patrons to watch the most important part of their experience while enjoying their cocktails and choosing what to try next.
In 2021, Atlanta’s newest and most authentic tex-mex/bar-b-que restaurant, moved in to serve all guests of the Ivy Buckhead. This 80 seat restaurant & bar is housed in the first floor of the Ivy, but serves its scratch-made family recipes during dining hours to all guests.
