The Imperial in Oakhurst
The Imperial has softly opened in Oakhurst, and neighbors are already packing the place, taking full advantage of the free-for-all seating policy. The pub is located in a small building on West College Avenue, and includes two dining areas and a front patio. There’s a full bar with bargain-priced draft beer and grub like a dressed roast beef po’ boy on Lee’s Bakery bread, plus starters, salads, wings and burgers. Partner and trivia master Robert Holland seems to be in charge of menu quips and music.

Kirkyard Public House in Kirkwood
For neighborhood residents, it might feel like deja vu as Kirkyard Public House has quietly opened in the two-story Kirkwood Station space on Hosea L. Williams Drive that’s been home to Vinocity, Kirkwood Public House and Kirkwood Bar & Grill. Urban Daddy reports that the sports pub from owner Dano Kirk features “chili cheeseburgers, a dozen draft beers and flat-screens everywhere you look.” The menu went live on the website today.
1963 Hosea L. Williams Drive S.E., 404-500-1357, www.kirkyardpub.com.
