Let's see here, there's so many.
- The Star Bar - Occasionally you'll catch a hip band here, and the bartenders are really cool. Very Rockabilly style in the middle of lil 5.
- The Brewhouse Cafe - My fav. place to go see a fight. This place goes nuts over boxing, packed house, huge screen projection TV. Excellent selection of beer, but be careful with those 64 oz mugs.
- The Fountainhead Lounge - The coolest bar in town; best drinks, reasonable price, cool DJ's (20hz Cartel), postmodern & Ayn Rand theme throughout. East Atlanta Village.
- The Righteous Room - Noone likes to admit ending up here, but it's low-key, convenient, and cheap. At the corner of Ponce & N. Highland, by the Majestic.
- The Cobalt Lounge - Similar to the fountainhead style, but with that nasty Buckhead aftertaste. Expensive, older, annoying crowd, but for some reason it's still kinda fun.
- The Yacht Club - Little 5, low-key, fun place for cheap beer and a fun place to play cricket.
- Twain's - Decatur, cool low-key bar with pool tables and dart boards, not too expensieve...
- Clairmont Lounge - What can I say. You have to go hear at least once to see Goldie. This used to be one of GG Allen's favorite places to go, no surprise! Supposedly his blood stains are still on the walls. Make sure you are specific to the bartender when ordering drinks. "Jack&Coke" will get you Jack Daniels & Coke, while "Whiskey&Coke" will get you some sort of toxic waste.... ughhh.. Yeah baby Yeah!!! Ronnie and Melonie are the hot ones to catch here. Goldie crushing beer cans with her tits is a perennial favorite.
- Front Page News - Crescent Ave, midtown. Best martinis in town, biggest martini glasses in town. Cool outside atmosphere.
- The Highlander - The best bar food in Atlanta. Wide selection of beers, I highly recommend it.
I haven't lived in Atlanta in 7 months, but here are my faves from back then:
- Flatiron - Located in East Atlanta on Flat Schoals(sp?) Road. It is easy to spot, it is inside a flatiron building! A very low key type of bar. Good beer, good bartender and a kickass jukebox. Some Fugazi, De La Soul and Soul Coughing always put me in the mood to throw back some.
- Earl - also in East Atlanta, right across the street from the Fountainhead Lounge. This place opened up after I left, but I did go there when I made a trip to ATL in July. The bartenders and clientle are all from the now defunct Point in L5P (is it still closed? weep!). Once again a very low-key bar. No jukebox, but the bartender was playing some cool tunes: Cop Shot Cop, Sebadoh and many others.
- Other favorites are the Fountainhead Lounge and the Yacht Club, but they have already been mentioned.
This is all I can think of for now. Have fun & be safe.
- The Heretic - hehehe. goto the back hallway if you really have guts and don't mind losing all that is innocent about you. heh. Yeah, good, cheap drinks, fun crowd to laugh at. Cheshire Bridge Road.
- Dottie's - On Memorial b/w lil 5 and downtown, sleazy little shack which is fun on Tuesday nights w/ Beat Research- good jungle all night long and good company, sorta. CAREFUL: I don't know what it is about this place, but even a drink or two makes it a bad idea to drive home. Be responsible!
- Backstreet's - My favorite. The biggest gay/lesbian/drag/whatever club on the east coast. There is always a party here, the club's always open. Go check out Charlie Brown's cabaret (drag queens lipsyncing all night long) for a good laugh. There's always drunk, homophobic rednecks wandering around totally freaked out by the place, hehehe.(and one of the best places to dance in atl! -firstname.lastname@example.org)
- The Vault - Yet another club trying to be "hip" in Buckhead, but this one has cool DJ's every so often. I don't know why Wayne likes this place so much. I suggest coming here for a few shots, laugh at the goths, and go wander around Buckhead & laugh at everyone once the boredom sinks in.
- 688- Does not exist anymore :(
- Loretta's - I wouldn't suggest going here anymore, it's gotten wierd ever since they stopped hosting raves. Next to the tunnel, Spring st.
- Nomenclature Museum - A cool place to go if you don't go too often; Good funky house music all night long with a somewhat cool crowd. Try to ignore all the people coming out of the bathroom rubbing their noses. Midtown, Crescent Ave.
- The Eagle - hahaha. Atlanta's favorite gay s&m club. Throw on your tight vinyl & leather & head out here. I wouldn't go alone, unless you're into that submissive kinda thing. Not for the closed minded.
- Menergy - Big gay club that's not cool enough to emulate Backstreets. Very sleazy here, but still always a fun laugh and sometimes good hard house, similar to Juniopr Vasquez style. Chesire Bridge rd.
- Yin-Ying Cafe - All sortsa wild stuff goes on here. Wednesday Nighjts I think is sometimes an interesting open-mic night with everything from beatboxing to poetry. Friday nights- good house, hip-hop, & drum&bass. Saturday nights occasionally hosts some really good jazz bands. If you are hip & with it, and have connections, find out when Lush is and definately go. The best vibe of any monthly/nightly/weekly event held. Next to the tunnel, spring str.
- The Masquerade - aka My First Club Night. This place is so lame, come here if you like to pick up on drunken greek folk. (...or high school kids! -email@example.com )
- Fusion - used to have all the cool DJ's on Wednesday Nights. The bartenders are less than adequate here, but the place looks really cool. For some reason the under 21 in-the-closet tech geeks frequent wednesday nights here. They're very funny and usually very inebriated.
- The Chamber - Lame. This is like, rednecks with leather fetishes. Come here if you really wanna get some... if you are hip enough you will find the opportunity to purchase intoxicating beverages for many a young vinyl clad vixen. Warning: The only people who stare at the fetish shows are tech geeks. Don't let your jaw hang too far open as you stare & drool.
- Kaya - This place is really cool if the right DJ's are spinning. The one like LTJ Buken occasionally comes here and tears the club up.
- MJQ Concourse - Sometimes this place is cool, good house music and good d&b action although the clientelle is rather pretentious and lame. Drinks are cheap here, relatively speaking, but the place is so packed on the weekends that the service sucks.
