Shoo-Fly Diner, the Belvedere Square bar and restaurant by Spike Gjerde, has been named one of the South's "20 Best New Bars of 2014" by the editors of Southern Living in their February issue.
On the criteria: "Editors selected budding hotspots based on their laid-back (yet refined) approach to serving spirits, and skilled drink pros thirsty to elevate their craft. They combine the quality of a top-shelf joint with the rocking spirit of your favorite dive," reports the magazine.
The issue is on stands now. Shoo-Fly Diner, which is categorized by the magazine as a "Restaurant Bar," is described as an "All-American spot [that] serves playful libations like their Mudslide milkshake made with house-made 4% alcohol soft serve."
The magazine also named Shoo-Fly Diner one of "100 Best Bars of the South."
