A cadre of local dignitaries converged on historic Auburn Avenue to celebrate the progression and restoration of this beloved and esteemed street.
Legislators, educators, business owners, bankers and other professionals appeared for the the grand opening of the all -new M BAR establishment, Atlanta City Councilman Andre Dickens alongside Atlanta city councilman C.T. Martin proclaimed Aug. 5, “M BAR Day” during the ribbon cutting ceremony in Atlanta, Georgia.
M BAR was given this prestigious accolade due to their pledge to restore the historic Auburn Avenue district to its former prominence and reinvigorate a sense of pride for the surrounding community. The owners will kick off their restoration initiative by immediately creating jobs with their venture in the area, setting a professional standard and experience and venturing past the four walls of the brick and mortar development to create an economic uplift.
Four young, well established African American men have joined forces to partner in bringing the M BAR vision to life: Damien Gordon (mixologist/ owner); Yaw Botchey ( marketing director); Xavier Peoples (client relations), and Melvin Simms (general manager). M BAR will offer guests the definitive Atlanta bar and lounge experience.
