101 Concepts plans to invade Fado Irish Pub's turf with a Meehan's Public House at 322 East Paces Ferry Road. The new Meehan's Public House will replace Aspen Grille & Bartini which itself replaced East Paces Tavern. The space was for many years Abbadabba's before they relocated to Roswell Road in north Buckhead.
Situated next to the recently relocated and enlarged Al's Cafe Agora, Meehan's will be a mere tenth of a mile from Fado Irish Pub on Buckhead Avenue.
Meehan's has existing locations in Sandy Springs, Downtown, Atlantic Station and Vinings. 101 Concepts also operates Cibo e Beve and Food 101 on Roswell Road in Sandy Springs, and late last year opened barbecue joint Smoke Ring on Nelson Street in Castleberry Hill.
There were plans to open a Meehan's in Decatur, but those plans fell apart for some reason. (Interestingly, the Decatur location is listed on the Meehan's van in the above photo.) There was also a Meehan's on Peachtree Road in Brookhaven, but it was sold a few years ago and is today operated as Pub 71. (101 Concepts originally operated an Italian eatery called Mangia 101 in the space)
Sources say 101 Concepts hopes to have its Buckhead Meehan's open in
mid to late July. August 1st
