Located in the blossoming neighborhood of Savannah’s historic district near Drayton and Liberty is Savoy Society. Savoy bleeds “cool kids” charm. Mismatched enough to look like the basement of Stanger Things with decor that is upcycled and eclectic. The bar touts engaging bartenders and an impressive collection of vinyl which is the pinnacle of the vibe. Drinkwise, you’d be remiss not to partake in their large cocktail selection and feature brews from near and far. For food, the menu is just as easy to grab a snack as it is to stay for dinner. The fresh baked bread should give you just enough carbs to successfully order an Uber at the end of the night.
This is a Savannah gem you don’t want to miss whether you are local or visiting, Savoy Society is a must. Here are 6 things you need to know about Savoy Society.
1.Their best selling cocktail is “Eyes Without a Face” which is made with tequila, carrot, ginger, orange curacao and tamarind. It is light, refreshing and c’mon would Mr. Idol steer you wrong?
2. I had the snack mix while I was there which is listed on the menu as “a little/or alot” and this isn’t just any snack mix. It was the best snack mix I’ve ever had. If you find yourself between meals and just in need of a refresher then one of their sweet cocktails and this salty nut mix cannot be beat.
3. The vinyl game is strong and the records that get the most play are: Charles Bradley, SZA and LCD Sound System. It’s a space where people can enjoy music communally.
4. Don’t miss the 2 most requested menu items which are Korean Meatball Sliders served with gochujang sauce, and cucumber. Also, Pepper Chicken with toasted jasmine rice, black pepper, turmeric, ginger, pickled red onion and crema.
5. Monday’s at Savoy are all about partaking in Italian specialties like Caesar salad, Sicilian Pie and plenty of red wine. Check them out on social media to see when offered.
