About usA little about our Apres Diem.

Established in 2000. Apres Diem is the evolution of the beloved Cafe Diem (1992-2000) in Poncey Highlands area. “after the day” is a play on words meaning the 2nd Cafe Diem or a cool night time spot!

Located in the heart of midtown and beside Landmark Arts Cinema, Apres Diem is a relaxed yet sophisticated take on the european style of dining. Apres Diem is an international bistro serving great food, espresso drinks, coffee/rotating desserts, full bar serving variety of cocktails.

Local art, live Jazz on Wednesday nights, and DJs on Friday/Saturday nights. Whether you are here for daily specials, movie, people watching at the patio, date night, music, eclectic international crowd, Apres Diem has been an Atlanta staple for years.
