Mardi Gras in Midtown

Popup-atl is the newest member of Diem Restaurant family, a group that includes Apres Diem, Carrol Street Cafe and Tapa Tapa that's been serving Atlanta for nearly 20 years. Popup-atl comes from the people that have been serving holiday cheer to thousands of Atlantis these past three years as Miracle On Monroe. This past autumn also saw the launch of Prost Atlanta, a German-inspired beer fest overflowing with liters of German brews. This year we will be expending our vision and hosting more pop-ups, so keep an eye out for more information on our next great theme...and it all starts with Mardi Gras!
