Michael Parker 

Club BP bouncer

Michael Parker, head of security at "Club BP," says this gas station at the corner of North Avenue and Spring Street may be one of the most popular hangouts in Atlanta. "You'll see everybody in here from Tyler Perry to Mase, we get all the stars. OutKast and all the rappers that I don't even know, because I am older, all seem to be attracted to the BP."

Listen up, fellas: Consider filing your tank instead of spending your money on drinks to find a date. "You'll see the most beautiful women in Atlanta come to this BP. If you married, man, you might not want to come down here."

Crazy traffic flows through all day long, according to Michael. "First wave is the rush hour crowd after work. Second is the before the club crowd, from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. Then you get the after the club crowd at 2:30 a.m., and then we get the gay crowd around 4 or 5 in the morning. But the bikers are constant."

"This BP was in a biker's magazine for being one of the best meeting spots for bikers in Atlanta; they have been coming up here for years."

Note to party people: You can chill at the station while fueling your Bentley or grabbing a Coke, but the BP rule is 15 minutes and then you have to go. So if you're trying to get a phone number, work fast.
