Ten Atlanta

Sure, Ten Atlanta is ridiculously schizophrenic. Then again, that dissonance artfully reflects our city’s diverse LGBT population, which boasts both RuPaul’s Drag Race contestants and a championship rugby team. Located at Tenth and Piedmont, Atlanta’s gayborhood ground zero, Ten is a restaurant by day and a nightclub after—you guessed it—ten. The hybrid offers everything from poker on Monday to a DJ on the weekend, Falcons tailgating, and a patio-packing Sunday cocktail social that threatens to spill onto the sidewalk. And now with Co’m’s Duc Tran as executive chef, serving up his lauded modern Vietnamese fare along with American favorites, Ten’s kitchen has a chance to come into its own.
