Best After-hours Club and Best Dance Club 

Backstreet Atlanta

845 Peachtree St.

Need proof that Midtown is the new Buckhead? Check out Backstreet at 3:30 on a Sunday morning. Gone are the armies of shirtless circuit boys and love-filled raver kids who once ruled the dance floor, replaced mostly by a sea of straight party girls and their uneasy-looking boyfriends. Sure, Fridays are still tres gay, and ever-bitchy drag divas like Raven remain favorites in the queer community. But weekends at this longstanding landmark of nightlife are a true melting pot for Atlanta's party set -- earlier closing times and nearby condo developments be damned!
