This impossibly hip and refreshingly diverse Edgewood lounge, from co-owner and DJ Karl Injex, is a worthy destination for its sultry sets (lots of funk and soul) and its strong yet playful cocktails (order the Beautiful Savage, a mix of tequila, pineapple, lime, and jalapeño). The intimate bar fills up quickly on weekends, and at 11, the entire space becomes one of the city’s best dance floors. 483 Edgewood Avenue, 404-835-2534, thesoundtable.com
