P'cheen
“Here you are, two Hoes and a Hummer,” a waiter is overheard telling a trio of ladies. He’s talking about beer: two Hoegaarten and one Sweetwater Summer Hummer. That kind of yak could lead to a quick eviction from the slickest ultralounge, but not from your casual crossroadsmore...
“Here you are, two Hoes and a Hummer,” a waiter is overheard telling a trio of ladies. He’s talking about beer: two Hoegaarten and one Sweetwater Summer Hummer. That kind of yak could lead to a quick eviction from the slickest ultralounge, but not from your casual crossroads pub, and that’s what P’CHEEN is for the “new” Old Fourth Ward. The convivial international bistro fare is not to be ignored. Neither are the kick-ass onion rings. But, at night, neighborly wayfarers congregate at P’Cheen for $2 PBR, Belgian brews, artfully balanced Guinness drafts and eclectic DJs. It’s become a beacon for booze at the boundary of a burgeoning ’hood. less...

Let’s face it, in Buckhead, just about any bar is fertile grounds for girls and boys on the prowl. But ANDREWS UPSTAIRS comes closest to the perfect straight bar. Just look at the place. Live music, a well-stocked bar, intimate booths, big, comfy couches, and a parade of beautiful patrons make this a hot spot when that spot is hot, if ya know what we’re saying. The 400-capacity love nest, which is perched above the East Andrews Cafe, also is an upscale music and entertainment venue with a fertile schedule of local, regional and national acts, DJs, movie nights and theme events. Although original music is presented, quite often the featured act is one of those crazy tribute bands that seem to breed like rabbits somewhere. It’s not uncommon to find a Bon Jovi or Led Zeppelin cover band on stage here, reproducing the hits that spawned a generation or two. less...

For spirited conversation, great bar food and an adult beverage or three, there’s no better intown gathering spot than the EUCLID AVENUE YACHT CLUB. With a radical mix of tattooed locals, thirsty tourists, boisterous bikers, and pierced punks, as well as a welcoming committee of Little Five Points’ finest freaks and geeks, the place is a true melting pot. The ironic nautical decor is a visual treat with a collection of interesting knickknacks and general oddities on view behind the bar. On most nights, the intimate institution is buzzing with enough real-life entertainment to warrant a cover charge. Don’t worry, there’s never an admission fee, so come on in and be a part of the show. less...

Located in the heart of historic Dunwoody, the gregarious folks at YE OLDE DUNWOODY TAVERN have been slingin’ the suds since opening in ’96. A popular destination of many north side Atlantans for social gatherings, weekend frivolity, or just a good place to kick back and watch a game, the Tavern is a comfy and occasionally jumpin’ little hot spot. In addition to a wide selection of liquid refreshments, a number of annual events are on tap, including golf tournaments, St. Patty’s parties and the Dunwoody Beer Festival. The above-average menu is a tasty treat, and other perks include free high-speed wireless, pool tables and organized soccer parties. less...

Its Midtown neighborhood is pretty decent, but what makes THE HIGHLANDER such a great hangout is the "ideal" vision of a neighborhood it projects: One in which ink-drenched guys of menacing demeanor, looking like they were just thrown out of hell, cheerfully intermingle with (and serve drinks to) comparatively normal professionals, Christina Aguilera look-alikes, strippers, ultra-goths and open-minded couples fresh from the Landmark Midtown Art Cinema. The kitschy knickknacks, sturdy bar food and erratic air hockey table - who "wouldn't" want to live in a neighborhood with a watering hole like this around the corner?

Tucked into the corner of Marietta's Town and Country shopping center, ROCCO'S PUB is just about the coziest, friendliest, most lived-in beer joint imaginable. Decorated with such archetypal straight-guy paraphernalia as dead animals - bear's head, boar's head, barracuda - and sports memorabilia - Ali-autographed boxing gloves, Mantle-signed bat - Rocco's is a second home to an amiable collection of Chicago Bears-lovers and barstool regulars who'll be glad to debate with you any issue relating to professional athletics, past or present. Besides being an easygoing place to grab a brew, Rocco's offers a better-than-average menu of bar chow, featuring salmon, a 10-ounce sirloin and the pub's signature chili, the winner of several national chili cook-off competitions.
