This fantastic dive bar has a loyal following. Situated between downtown and Castleberry Hill, Elliott Street Pub features friendly bartenders, live music on most nights, and a much-loved deli that whips up some of the area's best sandwiches. It's a small space with limited seating, so come prepared to make some new friends. All in all it's a good stop for a fun night out.
The Local, located in Poncey-Highlands, is your quintessential neighborhood dive. This non-smoking bar has been a gathering spot for the community for years. Enjoy a chilled pint or premium spirits out on their patio, or the occasional karaoke nights indoors. Smoked wings, pulled pork sandwich and cheese pretzel are some of the delicious fare on offer. Great prices, hands-on service and a laid-back vibe make it a local favorite.
Find this place by following the row of Harley-Davidsons along the curb. Popular with both bikers and locals, perhaps the hand-drawn sign in the window best expresses this establishment's laid-back attitude: Help wanted. No wimps. No bozos. Inquire within. The bar area is a deliberate dive, decorated with biker paraphernalia, road signs and a stuffed fish. The dining room is tavern-like, with large tables frequented by families. Barbecue features large on the menu and is reinforced by an admirable listing of sandwiches, burgers, and daily blue plate specials.
One of the best local watering holes of Atlanta, Northside Tavern is where the crowd gathers, come evenings. Featuring live bands and jam sessions daily, this venue is a hit amongst those in their 20s and the young at heart. The decor though a little outdated, runs parallel to the music played here, with pictures and articles of former blues legends and artists adorning the walls. The lively ambiance adds that extra zing, making up for what the place lacks in it's interiors. A great line-up of gigs and jam sessions by upcoming bands and established musicians further adds to the popularity quotient.
