Jerry Farber's Sidedoor needs a consistent lineup. The acts that appear are almost never what is advertised on the website and nearly always a disappointment. Jerry Farber's Sidedoor should suspend their cover charge or better yet, operating as an entertainment venue.
When is Abdullah there? I've been a few times & the food is just so so. The only other reason I'd go back would be to see him.
The drinks were good, but it seems they forgot to adjust their expensive CT/NY prices for Atlanta, GA. $48 bucks for a carafe (much smaller than a pitcher) of the house margarita is ridiculous. Tacos were okay, but nothing to write home about. It was an experience, but I likely won't be making a second trip.
Java Lords is about as local as it gets and they have awesome coffee - they roast their own beans and have a good selection of single-origin organics.
Eclectic crowd with a significant lean toward theater, music and arts folk - very open and inviting unless you try to pick a fight or are bothering other customers.
The actual space could probably use a little bit of a facelift but it is comfortable and quiet during the day to do work. The vibe really depends on the bartender because whomever is on duty is in charge of the music but they're typically accommodating too.
