The Gaslight Group is a hospitality group that owns & operates a variety of locations in Savannah, Georgia.

Ranging from a petite wooden bar illuminated by low lighting, a bourbon buzz, and the personalities that frequent its seats at Abe’s on Lincoln.

A bustling beacon for beautiful food & libations with raise-the-bar-worthy service, B. Matthew’s Eatery is nestled into the Historic District in an antiquated building which boasts a colorful history & one of the oldest standing taverns in the South East. But, make no mistake, there is nothing “old-fashioned” about this little gem (other than the craft-created old fashioned you may be sipping at the more than cozy bar). The unpretentious charm of the restaurant coupled with the beyond stellar fare continues to keep guests–just as moths to a flame–raving for over 8 years…and counting.

“Brassy”, “fresh”, & “spot on”, Blowin’ Smoke Southern Cantina is the restaurant embodiment of these words. At home in a repurposed garage, Blowin’ Smoke is a mash up between a Southern shanty BBQ shack, a California taco truck, & a lively South-of-the-border cantina. Needless to say, it’s off the beaten path & delicious on all levels.

A plaza space revamped & gilded with industrial and modern aesthetics, The 5 Spot Kitchen & Bar is a neighborhood hub. Churning out breakfast, lunch, dinner, & a sought-after happy hour in Midtown Savannah, this location aims & succeeds to please all palates, at all ages, from all walks of life, & at all times of day.

Owned & operated by a now-Savannahian-by-way-of-Tennessee couple, Gaslight Group is…special.

We hold a genuine care and concern for not only our guests and their experiences, but for our staff and their well-being. We understand that good food and libations with a smile are just straws in the bundle that make up the identity that is “hospitality”. Creating and sustaining spaces for guests and staff alike to feel welcome, nurtured, and important is what we’re all about. We look at the big picture all the way down to the tiniest details everyday.

We are Gaslight and we’ve got you covered.
