True Story Brands, the South African hospitality group, has officially opened the second location of their beef jerky and booze concept in the heart of Buckhead. As the first of its kind in the world, Biltong Bar is now open at The Shops Buckhead Atlanta and features organic, house-cured beef jerky, South African street fare, and an elevated beverage program.

“Our team is proud to provide such a unique dining experience in Buckhead,” says Justin Anthony, owner of True Story Brands. “Not only are we excited to introduce Buckhead to beef jerky and booze, but we’re also looking forward to providing those familiar with the brand elevated offerings at our new location, including lounge seating with interactive games, late night hours, and an overall expanded menu.”

Industry veteran, chef Matt Weinstein, heads up the kitchen as the Executive Chef of Biltong Bar – Buckhead, joining an executive team including Beverage Director Sean Gleason. Gleason develops the restaurant’s hand-crafted cocktail program, providing contemporary craft cocktail concoctions that utilize seasonal ingredients and exceptional spirits.

Weinstein has built upon Biltong Bar’s namesake, biltong, which is also known as all-natural dry, aged beef jerky, to offer new menu selections including the BB Burger, Tandoori Chicken Wings, Hot Chicken Sammie and Smoked Peri-Peri Trout.

The 6,500 square-foot restaurant has taken shape through the aesthetic inspiration of Anthony’s wife and interior designer, Kelly Wolf-Anthony of Wolf Design Group. The space features a 30-seat bar which extends the entirety of the restaurant, a robust dining room characterized by dark woods and leather accents and a dedicated lounge for guests to enjoy interactive games while dining.

True Story Brands encompasses several South African inspired restaurant concepts in Atlanta, with a focus on sharing the lifestyle and experience of South Africa through each of its ventures. In addition to Biltong Bar, the group includes 10 Degrees South which features traditional South African cuisine, Yebo Beach Haus which completely transforms, and Cape Dutch which offers South African steakhouse cuisine.
