The Clermont Lounge

Tools

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), crushing a beer can between her breasts, then you're not an Atlantan. The oldest strip club in Atlanta, located in the basement of the Clermont Motor Hotel, is so decrepitly surreal, one practically expects to find David Lynch huddled in a dark corner. It hosts a must-see karaoke night on Tuesdays and occasional shows featuring local bands.
MJQ Concourse

Tools

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.
El Bar

Tools

Located under the El Ponce on Ponce de Leon Avenue, this sleek lounge draws a young, hip crowd.
The Drunken Unicorn

Tools

The literally underground club features plenty of figuratively underground punk, electro, and hip-hop acts. Although connected to MJQ Concourse, it has a separate entrance. Earplugs suggested.
The Bookhouse Pub

Tools

This literary-themed pub channels Twin Peaks and is a popular stop on the way to or from clubbing. Expect seasonal beers, quality cocktails, and creative tavern fare.
The Local

Tools

This neighborhood bar and restaurant is popular with college students, hipsters, and, yes, locals. Above-average bar food, a cozy patio, and raucous Monday night karaoke make this a strong draw.
JavaVino

Tools

Small, light-filled coffee shop brews with shade-grown beans from the owner's family's plantation in Nicaragua. Good food and teas. Doubles as a wine bar.
The Righteous Room

Tools

This Poncey-Highland institution next to the Plaza Theatre oozes comfortable hole-in-the-wall atmosphere. Its small outdoor patio, satisfying bar-food menu and killer old-school jukebox make it a quintessential hangout, although quiet conversation can be hard to come by. There's also a cozy, semi-private seating area in the back.
