A venue for aspiring singer/songwriters and the folkie set, Eddie's has shows almost nightly and is famous for its biannual Open Mic Shootout.
Attached to the Raging Burrito, Azul's long and narrow space opens onto a 150-seat patio, and is best known for its raging Friday-night dance parties hosted by the nationally famous Decatur Social Club.
Excellent pool tables (and other games), big-screen TVs, some of the best bar food in Atlanta; a true local brewpub. Besides brewing its own beer, Twain's is world headquarters of the New York Corned Beef Society of Atlanta.
A handsome, horseshoe-shaped bar anchors the dimly lit space, which is populated by a rowdy, barely post-college clientele.
If you haven't witnessed Blondie, the city's most well-embraced stripper (she's appeared in the city's marketing material, for Christ's sake), crush a beer can between her breasts, then you're not an Atlantan. The strip club, located in the basement of the Clermont Hotel, is so decrepitly surreal, one practically expects to find David Lynch huddled in a dark corner.
Located under the El Azteca on Ponce, the sleek lounge, decorated mostly in red, draws a young, hip crowd.
The tiny, shacklike entrance reveals an eclectic and loyal late-night crowd. Music at this underground clubber’s club ranges from hip-hop and Brit-pop to downtempo and rare grooves. The dim basement space feels like the most happenin’ speakeasy in town.
