Best Movers-and-Shakers Hangout

It’s not exactly a bar, not really a business incubator. But the Speak Easy, a members-only work lounge in SoBro, combines the best aspects of both into a 9-to-5 hotspot for the tech sector. On any given day, creative minds are hard at work at the reclaimed-wood desks developing websites, apps, and related services, craft beer from the self-serve taps in hand.
