Yacht Rock Revue
Yacht Rock Revue has been touted as the “Best Overall Music Act in Atlanta,” but they might be most proud of their show being named the “Best Place to Get Drunk With Your Dad” and the “Best Place to Start an Extramarital Affair.” Equal parts tribute act and polyester-hoarding comedy troupe, the retro-loving pranksters have perfected the act of party instigation in their loving throwback to the mellow sounds of ‘70s soft rock. But while the act may poke affectionate fun at the bygone era, the musical professionalism is tighter than Brooke Shields’s Jordaches, earning them performances with the likes of Weezer and Kid Rock.
On May 31, the group takes the stage beneath a 10,000 square foot tent overlooking Piedmont Park and the Legacy Fountain. Yacht Rock Revue starts the evening with a set of the “greatest dentist office rock of all time,” which often includes the hits of Hall & Oates, Steely Dan, and Michael McDonald, before launching into his purple majesty’s 1984 magnum opus, Purple Rain. After the last guitar lick fades, the night continues at Park Tavern, where half-off sushi and a Prince-themed dance floor encourage guests to party like it’s 1975–1999.
The Park Tavern combines the historical grandeur of a century-old locale with the forward-thinking practices of a modern, eco-friendly restaurant. Some of the original woodwork and stone from its past life remains, chronicling the building's history as a horse stable in 1905, a golf clubhouse in 1928, and a space shuttle in 1969. The Tavern’s current layout contains an elegant events space, a dining room with an outdoor terrace, an ice-skating rink, and a live music and festival venue that features the annual Oyster Crawfish Festival.
Adopting green habits, the Tavern's owners developed a rainwater-recycling system to feed its plants and water its landscape, and switched to low-flow plumbing and LEED-certified hand dryers. Its concern for the environment extends to its menu as well: locally harvested ingredients and wild-caught fish support coastal communities and local farms while simultaneously ensuring each plate contains quality, eco-friendly fare. The lineup of dishes includes sushi rolls brimming with sashimi-grade Hawaiian tuna and meaty burgers bursting with fresh-ground Angus beef or great range bison, all of which can be paired with a house microbrew.
