Brick Store Pub tends to be the only place my group of friends can agree on after 11 p.m., which is fine because they have the largest and best beer selection in Atlanta and what I’m convinced is the best pimento cheese dish in the greater perimeter area. Appetizers tend to be hearty, reasonably priced and great for splitting. Brick Store tends to attract an older crowd of Decaturites during its most packed hours, but Emory students start to fill in around midnight on weekend nights, so chances are good you’ll run into at least one person you know. The quiet and cozy atmosphere make it a great place to wind down and have deeper conversation with friends after a night out.
