There’s a reason EDDIE’S ATTIC dominates this category year after year — the venue earns it! Even changes in ownership (now in the loving hands of Bob Ephlin) haven’t affected the quality of the bookings or the exquisite audio sound fans have come to expect. The local, regional and national performers love it, the audience loves it, and you ain’t a real Atlantan until you have been shushed by the Eddie’s Attic staff. With Bob and the titular Eddie at the helm, the Attic maintains a high degree of national respect. Besides, you gotta love the Monday Night Open Mike Shootouts. less...

Azul Tequila Taqueria & Cantina (Permanently Closed)
When the bars in Fulton County began closing at 2:30 a.m., we sorta thought people might start going out earlier to pack in the same amount of party time. Fashionably early, it seems, never caught on. The party still doesn’t get hopping till just before closing time. Thankfully, you can dropmore...
When the bars in Fulton County began closing at 2:30 a.m., we sorta thought people might start going out earlier to pack in the same amount of party time. Fashionably early, it seems, never caught on. The party still doesn’t get hopping till just before closing time. Thankfully, you can drop late into the DECATUR SOCIAL CLUB. Every Friday, Azul turns into an indie-rock dance party with organizer Preston Craig and a rotating cast of DJs including Jamal, the_chuck, and DJDJ Dylan, as well as special guests. The usual crowd is excessively hip: We recently heard you can view dudes in berets. OK. So, if the berets aren’t enough of a draw, it’s free before 1 a.m. and a mere $2 cover after that. less...

Club Vision (Permanently Closed)

Atlanta clubs shouldn't strive to be the "best club" just a really good club. In Atlanta, for some strange reason, IF A CLUB GETS NATIONAL ATTENTION, IT CLOSES. Think about this: When Jermaine Dupri showcased our nightlife in “Welcome to Atlanta,” most of the clubs he mentioned closed shortly after. Velvet Room? Closed. Kaya? Closed. Kream? Closed. Shark Bar? Closed. Club 112? Open, but it moved from the original location to Peachtree Street and, frankly, has never been the same. This year's victim? Vision (which sat on the hallowed grounds of Kaya). Dupri didn't shout out Vision, but celebs started flying into town to hold events at the newly renovated mega-club. Alas, Vision's lot will become lofts. Take note, club owners: Be successful, just not too successful. less...
