Hey daddy-0, you longing for a good excuse to twist the night away? Don't snap your cap – Creative Loafing's Nightlife Issue is here to help. We sent Staff Writer Thomas Wheatley to play with the playas at the Gold Room; Music Editor Rodney Carmichael found some Southern Comfort down on Moreland; Managing Editor Chanté LaGon discovered the secret code to slip into Prohibition; and Music Writer Chad Radford eased himself into the Midtown scene – and found that crowd avoidance has its perks. We've also cobbled together a guide to getting free drinks, a list of the best cocktail purveyors in town, and a gallery of Atlanta's most noteworthy bar bathrooms, from skuzzy to sparkling. Throughout this guide, you'll find more insight into Atlanta nightlife: an evening out with a graffiti artist, a glimpse inside the city's cocktail revolution, and a roundup of the city's best DJs. So put on your heppest outfit, and come spend a night on the town with us. We swear it'll be a gas.
