With inspiration from its namesake at the Royal Sonesta Boston, the new ArtBar at the Sonesta Gwinnett Place offers southern favorites alongside American and international dishes. With local art on the walls and a lively music scene on the schedule, it’s also the perfect place for a Liquid Art signature cocktail – the Georgia Mule. And we’re happy to offer a taste here, straight from our new seasonal menu.
