While at other clubs bartenders are going on about last calls and dance floors are beginning to thin out, the party is just getting started at this Ethiopian restaurant-slash-lounge off North Druid Hills Road. On weekends, the crowds (and tempo) pick up around 2 a.m. as ready-to-rage revelers file in for dancing and drinking (going as late as 4 a.m., we’re told). The DJ mostly sticks to popular Ethiopian artists, peppered with the occasional Top 40 hit from the likes of Taylor Swift or Major Lazer. Hold on—what’s that fantastic aroma? A booth full of hookah smokers just ordered a vegetarian platter. 1594 Woodcliff Drive, qsheba.com
