What’s Behind A Brooke Haven Lounge?
Officially opened for business on Feb. 28, A Brooke Haven Lounge in downtown Macon owes its namesake to the owner’s, Darrin Ford, daughter. In fact, she inspired not only the naming of the lounge—but a signature cocktail as well. The “A Brooke Haven” cocktail is a mixture of Southern Comfort, Peach Cîroc, iced tea, lemon juice, and mint.
Being on Ford’s radar for some time, A Brooke Haven Lounge in downtown Macon secured its spot in 2019. That’s when Ford found an open space on the corner of Cherry Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. The vibe in downtown Macon drew him to set up shop there.
