Best areas for nightlife in Atlanta?

Spending a weekend in Atlanta for work and need some suggestions on where to go out! If you only had a friend visiting Atlanta for the weekend where would be the best places to take them to get a feel for the local culture? I'm not a clubby person and usually like more relaxed/dive bars.

If you like more relaxed bars, I would stay away from all three neighborhoods that Rob mentioned. I would suggest East Atlanta (The EARL, Argosy, The Midway Pub, Flatiron Restaurant & Bar), Little 5 Points (The Porter Beer Bar, Elmyr, Wrecking Bar Brewpub, Euclid Avenue Yacht Club), or Downtown Decatur (The Pinewood,The Brick Store Pub, Leon's Full Service, Paper Plane, Kimball House)

Mentioned in this answer:

  1. The EARL (attraction)
  2. Argosy (restaurant)
  3. The Midway Pub (restaurant)
  4. Flatiron Restaurant & Bar (restaurant)
  5. The Porter Beer Bar (restaurant)
  6. Elmyr (restaurant)
  7. Wrecking Bar Brewpub (restaurant)
  8. Euclid Avenue Yacht Club (attraction)
  9. The Pinewood (restaurant)
  10. The Brick Store Pub (restaurant)
  11. Leon's Full Service (restaurant)
  12. Paper Plane (restaurant)
  13. Kimball House (restaurant)

The Edgewood Ave strip would probably be your best bet. Plenty bars and lounges and a diverse crowd. Another option would be the Peachtree Rd & Roswell Rd Bar District. A little pricier but the area is a little more upscale. Cant go wrong with Edgewood Ave though

The Brick Store Pub, Leon's Full Service, Victory Sandwich Bar (this place is one of my favorites), Krog Street Market (New place to go in Atlanta), Ormsby's (beer and games), Argosy (free pizza if you order two beers after 11pm), Proof and Provision (bar beneath The Georgian Terrace Hotel), Community Smith (Rooftop 866). Hope this helps!

The best areas for nightlife in Atlanta are Buckhead, Midtown Atlanta or the Virginia Highland. The latter is more bar centric.
