Grant Henry is many things—former seminary student, proud father, civic developer, folk artist—and all of these roles coalesce magically at his bar. The wall space is covered with iconography: some of it funny, some of it offensive, all of it compelling, like a series of car accidents you can’t turn away from. (Is that really a baby crawling up a cross under a sign that says “Ladder of Success?”) Not only has Church fueled Edgewood’s resurgence, but Lady Gaga and Ben Stiller have been known to drop by. P.S. Church Organ Karaoke on Wednesdays. 466 Edgewood Avenue, 404-522-8275, sisterlouisaschurch.com
