After Hours Clubs

MJQ Concourse Business

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. | more...

The Masquerade Business

No longer in its original home inside a former mill, the revamped Kenny's Alley hosts a variety of events, from punk and heavy-metal shows to goth and retro nights. The venue features three music rooms (Heaven, Hell and Purgatory). | more...

Aisle 5 Business

Aisle 5 maintains the communal philosophy of its predecessor, the Five Spot, but its guts are brand new. The 2014 renovation brought the space a new stage with an updated sound system, the better to enjoy Aisle 5's roster of indie rock, hip hop, and other music acts. | more...

SOHO (Compound) Business

This mega-nightclub feels kind of like a resort, with several indoor and outdoor environments, including a pool area (swimming, not billiards). A great spot for dancing, chilling, or the chance celebrity sighting. | more...

Music Room Atlanta Business

This cave-like underground bar is located below Pizzeria Vesuvius. A wide flight of stairs ushers you into a moderate-size venue that features live music and DJs. | more...

The Basement Business

This (literally) underground club, located below the Graveyard Tavern in East Atlanta, hosts local and touring indie rock and hip-hop shows (T.I. and Iggy Azalea once shared the stage here). The aptly named space is also home to old-school dance parties. | more...

the Sound Table Business

The Sound Table is as much a dance club as it is a restaurant. It's a showplace for some of the best DJs around, both in the downstairs dining room and next door at Space 2. | more...

Club Onyx Business

This gentlemen's club offers women free entry until midnight. | more...

Graveyard Tavern Business

This East Atlanta hangout looks better than you’d expect (soaring ceilings, a handsome bar), and attracts a young crowd that parties into the wee hours. A service-industry night, nerd trivia, reasonable drink prices and a diverse menu cement its status as a hipster paradise. | more...

Gold Room Business

MOTHER | Bar and Restaurant Business

Beep Beep Gallery's Mark Basehore and James McConnell joined forces with two Brooklynites to open this gastropub. The back patio is an excellent place to hang out, if you can elbow your way through the crowded bar area and find a table. Regular DJ nights and dinner specials, including $2 tacos, tequ... | more...

The IRIS aka Rush Lounge Business

A staple of Atlanta's EDM nightlife scene. Seating is at a premium, but then again, you come here to dance — to trap, drum and bass, dub step, electro, house and more. | more...

Pink Pony Business

There are strip clubs, and then there are Atlanta strip clubs. The Pink Pony sits atop an extended list of adult emporiums for the city, but it's the sheer size that topples the competition. Don't shy away from the buffet either; it's a real staple for the club's overall charm. Whether you're flying... | more...

The Highlander Business

Cheap beer, pool tables, and fried food are the pillars of this dingy Midtown strip mall dive. Conveniently located next to Landmark Midtown, this is the perfect place to throw back a few after catching a flick on a Friday night. | more...
