Buteco Coffeehouse & Bar in Grant Park, Atlanta

Located in the Grant Park neighborhood of Atlanta, Buteco Coffee & Bar is a Brazilian-inspired coffeehouse and bar. Here is how this new shop, opened earlier in 2018, describes itself:

Inspired by the bold flavors, the dynamic cultural vibes, and the sense of community at traditional Brazilian neighborhood bars, Buteco provides full espresso and coffee/tea service from 7 a.m. through the afternoon. Buteco's bar emphasizes cachaça-based cocktails (like Brazil's national drink, the Caipirinha), craft beer, cider, wine, and mixed drinks.

At the center of Buteco's main bar room is a custom-made maple bar top and a set of custom fitted repurposed tables, seats, shelving, and other furniture.

During my visit, I ordered a cappuccino and Brazil’s national drink, the Caipirinha. A set of photos showcasing Buteco are below.

The final touch.

Buteco features several beers on tap. On this particular afternoon: Monday Night Scotch Ale, Foothill People’s Porter, New Belgium Pumpkin, Terrapin Pils, and Lone Rider Hefeweizen.

On the menu…

Buteco is partnered with Intelligentsia coffee.

Old lockers beautifully repurposed to serve as a counter/storage/shelf for coffee lids, sugar, napkins, and other supplies.

The Caipirinha that I ordered. Delicious!

Buteco is a really cool coffee/drink spot in Grant Park which I will come back to. The menu is extensive, the atmosphere is friendly, and the parking is plentiful.

Perhaps the coolest aspect of Buteco seems to be the integration of music events at their space. For instance, Music Industry Mondays look to be a recurring event at Buteco. Check the event page for details.
