Atlanta Nightlife



Sponsored by:


Atlanta's nightlife offers something for everyone. Whether you are looking for a dance club on Edgewood, a cozy bar, to see which band is playing at Northside Tavern. If you're looking for a bit of edge, you can explore the stripper culture made famous by Atlanta's hip Hop scene over the years.

Check out all the options. We've got the most comprehensive list of live music from Jazz, to EDM, to Hip Hop and Southern Rock.

For a broader list of events, see the Atlanta Events, Things to Do recommendations or a list of neighborhood events. If you're in a band, an artist, run a venue, or keep your organization's calendar, we'd love to have your event on the site. Submit your event here and we'll get you on Atlanta's most comprehensive listing of events.
