Atlanta Magazine | A conspiracy-themed basement drink parlor is planned to open in Summerhill

Raise a glass to crop circles, aliens, and the Illuminati—Jake Karmin, former general manager and bartender of the now-closed Hand in Hand bar in Virginia-Highland, is opening a conspiracy-themed basement drink parlor in Summerhill. Together with Judy Ho, also formerly of Hand in Hand, Karmin will open the aptly named Conspiracy in late 2019 or early 2020.

“I was looking around Summerhill and there was a little basement with low ceilings. It puts you in a secret, clandestine state of mind,” Karmin says. “But it’s not going to be a speakeasy. We’re not confined to a certain era.”

The Georgia Avenue space’s metal entrance door, cinderblock walls, and concrete floor add to the sense of mystery. And Karmin—who’s been fascinated by conspiracies since he was a child—says the sparse space provides an opportunity to refresh the specific conspiracy theme from time to time. He envisions redecorating the bar and redesigning the drink menu for themed months such as Harry Potter, Elvis, or the X-Files.
