50 Best Bars in Atlanta

50. Atkins Park

By day, Atlanta’s oldest tavern is a low-key lunch spot. After dark, the center of gravity shifts to its narrow, tin-ceilinged barroom, where sizable beer-quaffing crowds are lively, bordering on raucous.

15. Blind Willie’s

The late-night denizens of Virginia-Highland (college kids in oxford shirts, midnight joggers, Audi drivers) would be unfamiliar to this place’s namesake. But the spirit of Blind Willie McTell remains alive and well behind these brick walls.

36. Highland Tap

In a dimly lit cellar below the bustle of Virginia-Highland, old-hat bartenders have been pouring stiff drinks since 1989.

5. Mary’s

How fun is Mary’s? It’s an East Atlanta Village gay bar where all are welcome, and the second you walk in the front door, you’re on the dance floor.

40. Polaris

This spaceship-shaped cocktail lounge isn’t downtown’s only revolving rooftop hotel bar—just the most badass.

14. Leon’s Full Service

Leon’s U-shaped bar encourages conversation. Its clever cocktail list encourages experimentation and its extensive beer menu will delight any hops snob.

39. Cafe 290

Surprise! The best place to hear jazz in metro Atlanta is the ground floor of a two-story office complex in Sandy Springs.

12. Holeman and Finch Public House

Founding drink-slinger Greg Best has moved on (to Ticonderoga Club), but the bar that jumpstarted the city’s cocktail craze in 2008—along with the waistcoat-and-tie uniform for barkeeps—is as crazy-busy as ever.

42. Cafe Circa

Let CC’s Rooftop, Cafe Circa’s bar with a view, elevate you above the Edgewood Avenue bar scene both physically and literally.

32. Stem Wine Bar

Refined small plates, a thoughtful list of 27 wines by the glass (plus a by-the-bottle reserve list), and attractive bartenders behind a sleek marble bar make for one of metro Atlanta’s most reliable wine perches.
