Our Story

Two Birds Taphouse is a family owned and operated gastropub. Marietta locals Jeff and Rachel Byrd partnered with their son Dan and his wife Lauren, to open the bar they all would want to patron themselves. 

Each member brought a different interest to the table... Jeff with his love of cooking and craft beer, Rachel with her experience in managing properties and love for the community, Dan with his love for design and craft cocktails, and Lauren with her passion for wine and 17 years of experience in the hospitality industry.

Executive Chef Justin Balmes brings years of experience, having worked at almost every level in the kitchen. His emphasis on recipes with organic local ingredients, passion for the community and leadership experience as a culinary instructor at the Art Institute of Atlanta made him the missing piece of the puzzle.

Together, they set out to completely renovate and restore a beautiful historic property.  
Contemporary fixtures combined with the building’s historic bones provide an industrial space that maintains a warm and inviting ambience. Two Birds is a welcoming neighborhood gastropub perfect for any and all occasions! You’ll always find friendly people you can count on for good drinks, food and conversation. 

We look forward to hosting you soon!
