If you missed my Travel Tuesday: 24 Hours in Savannah, GA [Part 1], you can check it out, here!
I left off talking about my love for the speakeasy, Alley Cat Lounge. The drinks were fantastic, craft cocktails at their finest!! The next morning, I was feelin’ all that vodka, so we went to get some hangover curing Bloody Mary’s at The Collins Quarter. The Bloody came with bacon, shrimp, & had just the right amount of spice, so it was basically to die for. For brunch I ordered a Collins Quarter signature dish, the #Tag this Hash. Of course, it tasted amazing and was just what I needed to kick that hangover to the curb. The Collins Quarter does brunch every day so it’s the perfect spot to visit when recovering from an Alley Cat Lounge hangover, or if you’re just really hungry on a weekday morning!
After our amazing brunch we walked through Savannah a bit, and then ended up at the Prohibition Museum which was such a fun & interactive experience. We all learn about Prohibition in school, but the way the museum is put together makes it so engaging and informative for pretty much all ages. I def learned a lot more about the Prohibiton Era, and certainly more about the role Savannah played in it all. Extra bonus, when you purchase entry, you can add on a cocktail from the in house speakeasy! Yes, there is a speakeasy inside the museum, which, of course, made it that much better!!
After the museum & some shopping we stopped by the Olde Pink House, which is a historic restaurant and tavern. It is absolutely beautiful, and the food was delish. I enjoyed the Pink Lady cocktail with some fried chicken and mac & cheese…sounds amazing right? It was- ugh, I wish I had it right now! What’s even cooler though is that you can walk around the entire restaurant and see each unique room in the house, now dining spaces, especially down in the basement. The food and drink was so good, not touristy at all, so I can’t wait to return for dinner next time I am in Savannah.
Before we headed over to Hilton Head, we stopped in at the Savannah Candy Kitchen and the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, just as the thunder clouds rolled in. I def need to spend a lot more time in Savannah, especially to do some more historical tours, and eat more Southern food, duh. I would suggest at least 2 days in Savannah to see all the charming little city has to offer. It’s 100% walkable, you can find a great restaurant on every corner, the drinks are amazing (& no laws on open containers!), and the history element is somethin’ else too.
Looking forward to sharing my next Travel Tuesday with you, New Orleans!
