By now you may have heard: CLUB 112 is where the party doesn't stop until morning - as in, 8 a.m. Name-checked by Jermaine Dupri and Ludacris, and visited by (insert big-name rapper/R&B singer/ pro-athlete here), Club 112 is hip-hop's cash-only Studio 54. Late at night, the line is often five deep and 50-feet long. Neon - flashy as the crowd's fashions - flanks the DJ booth. VIPs look down on the headz, while everyone else watches the back of each other's heads. But even in a house packed with heavyweights, DJs 4play, J-Nice and Cowboy keep the mood light.

840 Ralph David Abernathy Blvd. From the bamboo and tribal-mask-lined lobby to the Egyptian icons that flank the stage, the African House of Peace (or AHOP, as it's better known) is a unique encampment in Atlanta's West End. Located at the end of an alley marked only by a small sign on Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard, AHOP serves primarily as a community theater/empowerment center. But the hot little room also has hopped to some major touring acts like KRS-One, who managed to blow up the place (literally and figuratively: his strong voice and street beats were a heavy load for the sound system). Whether hanging around AHOP for a musical act or to learn African dance and/or martial arts, you're in for an enlightening time, and maybe even a home-cooked meal (vegetarian dishes are sometimes on sale). less...

It's under-utilized, hard to find and impossible to reach by phone, but this quiet warehouse at the corner of Memorial and Central avenues in downtown hosts some great urban-music parties, from Chocolate Soul and Atlantis' Urban Symposium to a variety of raves, radio-sponsored dance parties and hip-hop promotions. Not only large enough to accommodate a band stage/dance floor and a traditional DJ/club area, Studio Central also boasts a kitchen that often serves chicken wings and other delectables that help the crowd stay crunk. less...
