Sister Louisa's Church of the Living Room & Ping Pong Emporium doesn't serve craft beer and high-end cocktails. In fact, most folks are guzzling a PBR or sipping on a Spiritual Sangria, the bar's signature drink. Church, as it is referred to by locals, makes a debut on the top 10 list because of its unique campy quality. The space packs in tacky, sometimes offensive, religious art and tchotchkes and attracts a young, trendy crowd. The space looks small until you head upstairs. A large open room, with corner windows shines light from Edgewood, near Old Fourth Ward, on sofas, a Ping-Pong table, and ample space to chill. The bar has also been known to draw various celebrities when they film in the city--Ben Stiller has reportedly come on multiple occasions.
- Bars: "Visit Monday's for ping pong, Tuesdays for tarot readings and Wednesday for church-organ karaoke. Order the sangria, and be sure to eat the macerated fruit for an extra kick."
- Best for Bars Because: Church is all about the atmosphere. Religious-based folk art adorns the walls, and walks the fine line between adoration and blasphemy.
- Best for Bars near Georgia Dome Because: Less than two miles from the Georgia Dome, enjoy the scene in Old Fourth Ward at this popular spot for beers, ping-pong and people-watching.
- Recommended as Best Nightlife Because: It's campy, full of bar games and various conversation starters and boasts a nice patio.
