Henry’s makes play for piece of gay 10th Street

Add this share

Just when you thought everything was chill in Atlanta’s gay turf war for the corner of 10th Street and Piedmont Avenue, gay men, lesbians and a few stray straight people wandered further down the street on Saturday to the opening of Henry’s Midtown Tavern.

The indoor-outdoor to-do celebrated the latest restaurant effort from swanky Campagnolo’s equally swanky owner Maureen Kalmanson. That's right, fickle gays. There's a new place in town, and Kalmanson's bringing big guns to get a piece of the 10th Street action. The space is designed by Jeffrey Bruce Baker and the menu is by chef Daniel Chance.

The opening bash served as a fundraiser for the AIDS Research Consortium of Atlanta and the AV200 vaccine ride. In other words, schedule the opening for a sunny weekend, have it benefit gay-favorite causes, then just sit back and make room for a big gay influx of noshing and sipping. Stumble down soon between Juniper and Peachtree during your usual fruit loop between Blake’s, Ten and 10th & Piedmont.
