The funky run-down shack is packed with crowds looking for 'cue. Blue collar, white collar and no collar at all — folks gather to dive into plates piled high with sweet, savory barbecue (beef, pork, ribs and chicken) and traditional sides.
Chef Liu’s new location is relatively larger than the old shack that made it so famous. There still isn’t much in the way of decor, but the ambiance is inviting. The menu has grown to a full four pages of specialties built on a foundation of core dishes that made the former location a hot spot.
The dishes at Cafe Agora originate in owner Al Ozelci's native Turkey. Eating here is a collaborative process, similar to eating at home. Popular dishes include the mezze plate, full of dips and salads.
Part gourmet grocery, part sandwich shop, part cooking school, part neighborhood bistro. Weeknights, the restaurant feels cozy and intimate. Weekends, the place turns into a scene that feels energizing to be a part of. Chicken liver mousse, beef tartar, standout desserts from the pastry case and an exceptional beer list may prove that dinner here is just what your hungry soul needs.
Originally a cotton-gin manufacturer, the Goat Farm is a Westside haven for working artists and performance companies, a frequent location for movie shoots (cough cough, Hunger Games, cough cough), and a great live music venue.
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.
This (literally) underground club, located below the Graveyard Tavern in East Atlanta, hosts local and touring indie-rock and hip-hop shows (T.I. and Iggy Azalea once shared the stage here). The aptly named space is also home to old-school dance parties.
