Jazz & Blues Clubs: Home of the internationally acclaimed Mudcats, this unpretentious Atlanta bar is what blues clubs were meant to be. Having hosted some of the biggest legends in blues history, Northside Tavern continues its tradition of booking stellar musicians almost every night of the week, and whether you're a dancing fiend or a wallflower, you can't help but move your body to the beat. Cheap drinks, pool tables and fire-blowing bartenders round out this late-night hot spot.
Billiards: A fun Westside beer joint, this one is a little out of the way, but that doesn't deter the regulars who hang out there. Decidedly casual, anything goes as far as attire. But if you are downtown sightseeing or having a meal, it's an entertaining place to head afterwards. The schedule is full of live shows, which range from great to less-than-great. Pool tables and homestyle grub round out this laid-back nightspot's offerings.
