Rich purple walls and a bar outfitted with a zebra-print façade sounds more like club decor than the decor of a school. For the past 20 years, however, the National Bartending School of Atlanta has put on mixology clinics in just this kind of lounge-style setting. At its six learning stations, teachers train professional bartenders during hands-on certification courses that cover more than 100 drink recipes, as well as eclectic topics such as free pouring or the art of making a cocktail from whatever falls down a waterfall. Alternatively, students can dabble in the art of cocktail creation during two-hour, noncertification courses, which focus on classic drinks such as the cosmo and the margarita.

The nonprofit Saferide America pursues a single, noble goal of keeping drunk drivers off the road. The volunteer-based program dispatches licensed drivers to bars, restaurants, and parties across Atlanta to pick up impaired clients and return them—and their cars—safely home. Divided into three branches of service, Saferide maintains on-call cars that cruise the streets from 6 p.m. to 4 a.m., daily, professional chauffeurs who pilot customers on preplanned nights out, and drivers at parties to drive home multiple guests. The organization raises funds through donations, and contributes money to children who have lost parents to drunk driving.
