Irby's Tavern's Goal is to Become THE Atlanta Sports Bar

In place of Meehan's Public House which closed its Buckhead location on East Paces Ferry Road Friday evening after nearly four years in business, a group of business partners plan to open Irby's Tavern.  Sources close to the situation indicate that Meehan's sudden closure [without warning to their employees or patrons] was brought about by the fact the the offer to assume the restaurant's lease was "now or never," and that 101 Concepts took the opportunity to dedicate their resources to their other concepts/locations.

Meehan's Pulls an Irish Goodbye in Buckhead, Now Closed

The Buckhead location of Meehan's Public House abruptly closed last night after about four years in business.  Atlanta based 101 Concepts opened the restaurant on East Paces Ferry Road in summer 2014.  Meehan's opened adjacent to the then recently enlarged and relocated Al's Cafe Agora, and within close proximity of Fado Irish Pub, the incumbent pub of choice for Irish fare in Buckhead.

DeKalb Plans for Cross Keys to Cross Buford Highway, Relocate to Former Briarcliff High Site

According to Reporter Newspapers, The DeKalb Board of Education earlier this week approved building a new Cross Keys High School at the former Briarcliff High School site on North Druid Hills Road.  The site was approved despite opposition from Marshall Orson, Stan Jester and James McMahan, the three board members closest to the site, who said traffic in the area would make it inaccessible for many on Buford Highway.
