Dance Clubs, Best Nightlife: This longstanding Buckhead entertainment complex seems to be constantly adding new restaurants and bars to its line-up. Take in the arctic environs and dine on sushi at Czar Bar (where "ice" takes on a whole new cool), imbibe on old-school cocktails at the speakeasy-themed Prohibition, laugh at comedy hopefuls at the Improv Comedy Club, shake your groove thing at Andrews Upstairs and dine on craft burgers at Stillhouse. On top of regular weekend merriment, the complex regularly plays host to a range of special events. Latin Elegance Wednesdays (featuring free salsa lessons) are a weekly affair, and various sports and holiday-themed kick-off parties draw big crowds. Go with a group and make a night out of it.
Comedy Clubs: This bar is enjoyable if you get there on a good night for watching a funny comedian. It's walking distance from other bars in the Buckhead Village, which makes it a hot spot on the weekends. You might find patrons enjoying the weather on the patio, and when they need a break.
DJs: This Euro-inspired cafe-bar serves up gourmet-caliber tapas, fine wines and signature martinis. The place sports a touch of European charm, and live acoustic acts provide patrons with a cool soundtrack while supping and sipping. On nice evenings, many folks opt for tables outside since the lovely, ivy-covered patio seems worlds away from the Buckhead bustle. If a more fast-paced setting is your thing, check out Andrews Upstairs, an intimate performance venue whose weekly slate includes everything from rowdy "hair bands" to terrific stand-up comedians. NB Cover charges apply only to Upstairs.
