The House of Found Objects
The House of Found Objects is the newest bar from Feizal Valli It opened in mid-November at 22nd and 2nd Avenue North. Valli is one of the city’s best known hospitality entrepreneurs with stops at Highlands Bar and Grill and Hot & Hot Fish Club, and a stint managing The Collins Bar. He opened The Atomic Lounge in 2017.
That bar, which featured drinks named for customers and costumes that could be worn while enjoying the evening, was nominated three times for Outstanding Bar Program by the James Beard Foundation and won notices from outlets as varied as Southern Living and The Daily Meal, which named the bar “Best Cocktail Bar in Alabama.”
It might be easy to think of The House of Found Objects as Atomic Lounge 2.0. But while there are similarities, the new bar is very much it’s own space with nooks and crannies that feature poetry and costumes. You can listen to playlists from local DJs and watch customer videos on the big screen behind the bar. And enjoy some great, creative cocktails, which after all is the point of it all.
“Come expecting to be reminded of The Atomic, but be prepared for a new experience. Make a video for the display, put on a costume—be active in The House of Found Objects’ experience.” Feizal Valli, as quoted on bhamnow.com.
