First I am a Vietnam veteran and am calling on all soldiers to avoid this lousy place. The management insulted me and all servicemen. Long story short we were given the wrong bill for our table. When we inquired about the larger than expected bill, the manager told us if we dont like it, then never come back. (He didnt... More

My boyfriend and I went to this spot after his long flight and my long day at work. They don't have a happy hour, but their drinks are WAAAYYYY cheaper than the rest of the bars in the area. The bartender didn't know what a whiskey crush was, so I told him what was in it, he made it, and... More

My husband and I were on a pub crawl, with just him and myself and we decided to go to an area called the Virginia Highlands. This was the first placed we stopped at. The crowd was very light (Maybe because it was on a Monday night) and it appeared to be the regulars. We ordered a couple of beers... More

After they were delivered, we asked the waitress for change in quarters to feed the parking meter. This is in a neighborhood notorious for parking tickets being given as soon as the meter runs out. The waitress said she... More

It's loud, crowded, and full of throngs of people shoving to get to the relatively small bar for the size of the room. I don't understand the draw of this place. There are much better places to drink in VaHi like Hand in Hand, Neighbors, or Fontaines. Crowd is young- college students and yuppies.

Oh, wow! I didn't know Dark Horse was listed in here or in Frommer's. How interesting! I visited this place this summer and wanted to recommend it to out-of-towners and people who are new to Atlanta. My friends in Atlanta who are, I guess, professionals hang out here regulary on the weekends. It's large, full of cigarette smoke, crowded, and... More
