Hey---you can check out The Sanctuary in Buckhead--should be close to Marta
3209 Paces Ferry Place very close to intersection with peachtree rd, roswell rd and W Paces Ferry down Roswell Rd a bit.
Hey - I just came across this cool little mini doc that highlights Hole in the Wall - it is a fun, relaxed, casual bar/club that has great music, a wonderful crowd, and cheap drinks. It should be the start and finish point for any party-goer in Buckhead in my humble opinoin.
May you all enjoy
Dress Code: casual, dressy, how ever you want to go out that night!
Peachtree Tavern is a great bar located in Buckhead. It is filled with mostly with people in their early to mid twenties. It usually has a lot of famous local artists such as Luke Bryan perform. It also has many appearances from semi-famous reality TV stars such as from the Real World.
We hopped around to several places in Buckhead, but overall it's one of the best things to do in Atlanta on a weekend night. BAR Atlanta was the first place we hit; it was a fun and rowdy atmosphere, where people can just "be themselves." We then hit Mako's, an indoor/outdoor place. Not sure the other places we went but overall it felt like spring break--strangers hugging you for no reason and everyone just having a great time!
Dress Code: None that I'm aware of
The Buckhead district is located about 10 miles north of downtown. It is most known for its two major malls, its high priced hotels and high end restaurants.
While it is certainly true that you can drop some bucks in Buckhead, there is a range of choices when it comes to nightlife. There are fancy restaurants such as The Palm Steakhouse and the Ritz Carlton dining room and trendy clubs and bars, but there are also local laid back bars where the drinks are cheap and the locals are friendly.
Here's a few suggestions:
Tavern at Phipps The Tavern is a popular Friday night hangout with reasonably priced food and drinks. Its located in Phipps Plaza Shopping Center.
East Andrews: East Andrews street has a collection of bars and clubs. This area is a little less friendly than the main drag, but its still a good time.
Fado's: Fado's is a great Irish Pub. I believe its a chain, as I've seen them in several cities. Casual, reasonably priced and popular, its a good bet on the weekends. Live bands play here often too.
I'll update this tip after my next visit and share some thoughts on the best and worst of Buckhead, as I see it.
Dress Code: Unless you're going to a fancy restaurant, jeans will work just fine anywhere.
This is a great place for those who are fans of the all-American dive bar. Buckhead has a mixture of nightlife, ranging from high priced restaurants, after hours nightclubs where music booms till the wee hours and the bars.
The bar scene in Buckhead also provides a range of options. This upscale area has its share of high priced venues for sipping expensive coctails while, minutes away, you'll find places like the Buckhead Pool Hall, where patrons throw peanut shells on the floor and listen to rock music. The place is casual and laid back- a true find in a high end neighborhood. Everyone is friendly here and jeans meet the dress code.
Dress Code: See above. Its a dive bar. I did see some people wearing suits in here. I couldn't believe it either, but it looked quite out of place.
The Ritz Carlton is Buckhead's 5 star hotel and its lobby bar is the scene of a lively happy hour crowd on Friday nights. Its known as a place to see and be seen. As expected, food and drinks cost extra here, as its the Ritz, after all. Its not a place you'd make a night of, unless you were eating and staying here, but its a nice spot to stop in and have a cocktail to begin the evening.
Dress Code: Jackets and ties are not required, but its definitely not a t shirt and jeans kind of place either. I think the phrase I'm going for is "business casual".
Buckhead is a part of town which is full of nightclubs. If you're into stuck up, gold diggin, slutty women. Or sleazy guys who spend more time in front of the mirror than the women, Buckhead is the place for you. However, if you are a little more classy, you might want to check out Virginia Highlands.
Dress Code: It varies bar to bar, but to be safe, no hats, sneakers, or jerseys.
It used to be that this place was an all nighter every night. But, due to shootings, fights and the like, most of the places now close at reasonable times. Everyone is migrating to midtown for late nights and a different scene. (10/04). Check it out b/f you go.
Dress Code: Club Wear.
Classy crowd, but definitely not aloof. Wednesdays they have Salsa dancing lessons and plenty of spicy club music every night. Enter off of Bolling Way, then head to the back bar and say "Hi" to Karen and Carolyn taking care of the bar.
Dress Code: It's a popular place, but they seem open to reasonable attire.
Club Vision is a nightmare to go to on a Friday night if you are white!! We were the only white people there, which we had no problem with....it was the "Eat Sh!t" looks we got that were the problem. The music and atmosphere were very nice but I suggest you go somewhere else if you are white!!
Dress Code: nice attire, no camo
Buckhead is a neighborhood in north Atlanta that has several bars, nightclubs, and restaurants. It totally comes alive on the weekends and they even block off a number of smaller streets to accommodate the crowds. All hot spots are in a 5 block radius of each other. Parking can be a little difficult at times.
Dress Code: Depends on the club...some places are T-shirt & jeans, others you want to get ultra-trendy. I usually go in between but more towards the trendy side, never been turned away yet. Avoid tennis shoes and team logos and you should be OK.
Buckhead is a whole part of the city with countless bars, restaurants and clubs. When I was there we went for a pizza first and then headed to an Irish Pub. The atmosphere in there was gorgeous. A band was playing live music and the Heineken beer was affordable.
You can drink and party inside in the lower areas or you can head to the roof. You MUST have a fishbowl. They will get you hammered and are only US25 with a lot of straws and a plastic alligator. The blue is the best. Share it with your friends because if you drink one by yourself you are sure to get F'ed up and you just might wake up in the gutter or naked wandering the streets of Atlanta. LOL
Dress Code: what ever you want, from shorts and a t-shirt to a TUX
Within a 5 block radius is something for everyone, from hole-in-the-walls to swanky places 'to be seen'.
Dress Code: Depending on where you plan to spend the evening you can get by in shorts/t-shirts to club attire. Most of the hopping places (on Boling Way) are teeming with people in the finest 'check me out' garb... especially in the Spring & Summer.
