5. Mary’s


How fun is Mary’s? Walk in the front door and you’re immediately on the dance floor, where the crowd—a mix of ages, genders, and fashion and sexual preferences—is moving to remixed 1990s pop songs. If you care to squeeze your way through, you’ll find the bar, with friendly servers and cheap drinks.

Don’t miss The airy loft above the bar is prime people-watching.
A welcome break from The hipper-than-thou vibe at other East Atlanta bars
