Henry’s whips out its Big Deck anniversary party

Add this share

As much as the deck, dining and drinks are entrenched as staples in gay Atlanta, it’s hard to believe it’s only been a year since Henry’s claimed a piece of gay 10th Street for its very own.

With its “Come. Sit. Stay.” motto and a dog-friendly patio policy in tow, the gay-owned bar celebrated its first anniversary just like it celebrated last year's launch – with a Big Deck Party to benefit Angels Among Us Pet Rescue to coincide with National Dog Day.

A suggested donation got folks and some of their four-legged friends into the party with a drink ticket. Owner Maureen Kalmanson (also of swanky Campagnolo’s) held court, and DJ Christopher Kind put the whole soiree to a beat.
