Eclipse Di Luna - Miami Circle -

You can find the original location of Eclipse Di Luna at 764 Miami Cir NE, Atlanta, GA 30324 near Lindberg. It's way in the back in an area known for Home Design and as the epicenter of ADAC and beautiful interiors all over the US.

It had been many, many years since I've visited the original Eclipse Di Luna and when it was suggested by friends that we congregate for a birthday I immediately said "I'm in!" - well, any excuse for a party but more than that, I was a bit curious to see how this location has fared over the years. I work closer to the Park Place location and eat there often - I don't believe I've been to the Miami Circle location in at least 10 years.

As you would expect, the feel of this location is a bit different than the Park Place location - perhaps a bit more cramped and raw. The exterior is smaller and much cuter, with tons of tropical plants delivering more of a home to the Tapas served. Love the vibe.

The early evening we visited the place we arrived early and were immediately seated. Soon it was fairly packed. I think there were about 8 or more of us, all seated around a long table. As you can imagine, the drinks were flowing with a focus for me on beer (typically it would be on the classic mojito, which Eclipse handles quite well).

There was a little bit of snacking but for the most part we were here to drink. The bar was to one side and about three deep with people ordering drinks - it's quite a bit smaller than the other location. The bartenders here are a hoot, frequently putting on props and making announcements or doing other impromptu acts to get the merrymaking started. Singing, horns, music, the works. We had a fantastic time and the service was very good, even with the rowdy crowd.
